On Tuesday, Google announced its first large hybrid cloud service platform, Anthos, which allows customers to use applications through Google's cloud and data center to enter the hybrid cloud market, rivaling Amazon's AWS and Microsoft's Azure.
According to reports, Anthos can operate not only in Google cloud and data center, but also in competitor Microsoft or Amazon cloud services. It does not support IBM, Oracle or Alibaba cloud computing services for the time being. If more Google customers use other cloud services, these compatibility may be added.

People can now subscribe to Anthos on a monthly basis and enjoy a commitment for a minimum of one year. The price will not change whether the application is running in the cloud or locally. With 100 virtual CPUs, the recommended price is $10,000 per month.
With Google's Kubernetes Engine, Anthos can run on different cloud facilities. Anthos is a software product, so customers don't need to buy any new hardware.
