Google Cloud Self-Paced Labs


Anthos is an open source application platform that enables you to modernize your existing applications on your hybrid or multi-cloud environment. Anthos is built on open source technologies pioneered by Google — including Kubernetes, Istio, and Knative — and enables consistency between on-premises and cloud environments.

When workloads are upgraded to containers, IT departments can eliminate OS-level maintenance and security patching for VMs and automate policy and security updates at scale. Monitoring across on-premises and cloud environments is done through a single interface in the Cloud Console.

Migrate for Anthos is a tool to containerize existing VM-based applications to run on Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE) or Anthos. By leveraging the GKE ecosystem, Migrate for Anthos provides a fast and simple way to move to modernized orchestration and application management without requiring access to source code, rewriting, or re-architecting applications. Migrate for Anthos supports migrations of VMs to containers on Google Kubernetes Engine on these Windows operating systems:

  • Microsoft Windows Server 2008R2 or higher.
  • Microsoft IIS 7 or higher web applications.
  • ASP.NET and .NET Framework version 3.5 or higher.

In this lab you will use Migrate for Anthos to migrate a Compute Engine VM running a Windows image into a Kubernetes Cluster using a processing cluster.
