Google Cloud Self-Paced Labs


VM instances can exist on premises, managed by products such as VMWare vSphere, and in public clouds such as AWS or Azure, in addition to Google Cloud Compute Engine instances.

Anthos is an open source application platform that enables you to modernize your existing applications on your hybrid or multi-cloud environment. You can build new VMs and run them anywhere in a secure manner. Anthos is built on open source technologies pioneered by Google—including Kubernetes, Istio, and Knative—and enables consistency between on-premises and cloud environments.

When workloads are upgraded to containers, IT departments can eliminate OS-level maintenance and security patching for VMs and automate policy and security updates at scale. Monitoring across on-premises and cloud environments is done through a single interface in the Google Cloud Console.

Migrate for Anthos provides an almost real-time solution to take an existing VM and make it available as a Kubernetes hosted pod with all the values associated with executing your applications in a Kubernetes cluster.

In this lab you will use Migrate for Anthos to migrate a Compute Engine VM instance to a corresponding container image that is hosted in a Kubernetes pod. This process can be applied to a VM hosted on-premises or in another public cloud provider.

How Migrate for Anthos allows you to containerize faster than other possibilities:
