Google introduces Kubernetes apps in GCP MarketplaceSyah Ismail
Google has introduced production-ready commercial Kubernetes applications in Google Cloud Platform (GCP) Marketplace. This means, you can find the solution you need and deploy quickly on Kubernetes clusters running on Google Cloud Platform (GCP), Kubernetes Engine, on-prem, or even other public clouds.
Kubernetes apps are configured to get up and running fast. It’s easy with just click-to-deploy to Kubernetes Engine, or deploy them to other Kubernetes clusters off-GCP. With a Marketplace window directly in the Kubernetes Engine console, deployment is a breeze.
In terms of security, all Kubernetes apps listed on GCP Marketplace are tested and vetted by Google, including vulnerability scanning and partner agreements for maintenance and support. Additionally, Google work with open-source Special Interest Groups (SIGs) to create standards for Kubernetes apps, bringing the knowledge of the open-source community to your enterprise.
Kubernetes apps, developed by third-party partners, support usage-based billing on many parameters (API calls, number of hosts, storage per month), simplifying license usage and giving you more consumption options. Further, the usage charges for your apps are consolidated and billed through GCP, no matter where they are deployed (not including any non-GCP resources they need to run on).
