In April 2019, Google announced Anthos, a variant of hybrid cloud based on Kubernetes (K8s). Anthos lets you build and manage modern hybrid applications on existing on-premises investments or in the public cloud. Built on open source, vendor independent technologies, Anthos enables consistency between on-premises and cloud environments. Anthos helps accelerate application development and strategically enable your business with transformational technologies like service mesh, containers, and microservices.


During this breakout session, Koen Maes will share the latest developments on hybrid cloud and will give you an insight on how containers can help you transform your business. Furthermore, Koen will discuss some quick wins of hybrid cloud implementation, including reduced maintenance costs and an instantly increased accessibility and scalability of your IT infrastructure.
