đź—‚ Link: What is Google up to with Anthos? More toys dropped for Kubernetes-style hybrid cloud

The answer is that Anthos is not really a technology, but more of a brand, a wrapper around Google’s cloud crown jewels, Kubernetes (K8s).

And:

In a nutshell, Anthos is the GKE (Google Kubernetes Engine) deployed on-premises in a certified configuration (via hardware suppliers such as Dell and HPE), with an agent installed that maintains an encrypted connection to Google Cloud Platform (GCP). That agent lets you manage your Anthos cluster and its workloads from the GCP console, deploying and scaling applications. Anthos relies on good connectivity to GCP – for example, using Google Cloud Interconnect.
