With its Kuberntes Engine (GKE), Google Cloud Google has long offered a managed service for running containers on its platform.
Kubernetes users tend to have a variety of needs, but so far, Google only offered a single tier of GKE that wasn’t necessarily geared toward the high-end enterprise users the company is trying to woo.
Today, however, the company announced a new advanced edition of GKE that introduces a number of new features and an enhanced financially backed SLA, additional security tools and new automation features.
You can think of GKE Advanced as the enterprise version of GKE.
Google says the service builds upon the company’s own learnings from running a complex container infrastructure internally for years.
For enterprise customers, the financially backed SLA is surely a nice bonus.
