Open Hybrid Cloud is Atos' hybrid Cloud hosting environment, based on Anthos, and open source platforms Kubernetes and OpenStack. This solution from Atos will help customers adopt hybrid Cloud solutions for increased operational efficiency and faster application deployment.
This fully-managed, on-premises, private Cloud solution enables businesses to move to the Cloud with complete security and protection. Additionally, Atos' Open Hybrid Cloud solution adds Atos' Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) capabilities on top of Anthos. It also brings the capability to operate and run Kubeflow on-premise and to take advantage of Google Cloud's Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) expertise.
Atos brings its expertise in end-to-end Cloud orchestration and management, as well as security and protection, meeting access and control requirements that European and global regulations demand. Atos is a global Leader in Managed Security Services (MSS). Its modular identities and access management solutions and military-grade encryption products enable businesses to maintain sovereignty over their own data enhancing greater security and trust in their business processes, and the services and applications supporting them.
"Open Hybrid Cloud from Atos accelerates the path for new hybrid cloud capabilities that leverage Anthos. It enables businesses to take advantage of all the benefits of both offerings, including agility, speed of deployment, flexibility and cost optimization, all on a secure, managed platform", stated Eric Grall, Senior Executive Vice President, Global Operations at Atos.
"We're delighted that Atos is already building services and solutions on top of Anthos. Customers will benefit from Google Cloud technology, including Anthos, as well as Atos' experience in enterprise transformation", stated Kevin Ichhpurani, Corporate Vice President, Global Partners and Ecosystem at Google Cloud.
Since the start of its global partnership with Google Cloud in April last year, Atos has signed multiple major clients to Google Cloud including global companies in the industrial, pharmaceutical, telecommunications and broadcast sectors.
Beta access to Open Hybrid Cloud is available now, with general availability expected in the second half of calendar year 2019.
