Arctiq's deep ecosystem partnership with Google is an enabler of leading-edge application solutions, for both Google customers, and also Google themselves. Arctiq is Google's go-to-market partner for the newly announced Anthos platform (formerly Cloud Services Platform, or CSP), which is comprised of GKE On-Prem and Istio on GKE. Services from Arctiq include; GKE Foundations services, GCP deployment architecture and design, GKE enablement workshops, Day-2 Ops courses, Machine Learning and data consulting, and Anthos deployment consulting. Arctiq is a Premier partner, a focus services delivery partner, and solution specific go-to-market partner for Google in the Americas.
A key value of modern cloud platforms is the inherent ability to integrate with open tooling. Google has built GCP and Anthos using open methodologies, allowing diverse ecosystem solutions to thrive on the Google stack. These solutions allow for integration with secrets management, automation scripting, infrastructure-as-code, and CI/CD pipelines, to name a few. These integrations are key to any workflow, as they help bridge the gap between traditional operations processes and new methods, keep costs lower, and introduce tremendous open flexibility - no more 'one-size fits all' lock-in.
Arctiq's platform enablement services for Google Cloud are based on repeatable code using modern tools such as HashiCorp's Terraform and Red Hat's Ansible for building infrastructure-as-code, and Microsoft's GitHub for storing, versioning, and collaborating around code - among others. These foundational tools and platforms bring deeper usability to Google Cloud, and helps bridge the gap between development and operations.
Getting a solid start with Google Cloud requires a well thought-out foundation. Arctiq's GKE Foundations services help prepare our clients for the benefits of change that come with migrating workloads to Google Kubernetes Engine. Arctiq assesses, plans, deploys, and optimizes these environments using proven strategies, focusing on delivering successful application migrations and a repeatable approach. Our architects help with discovery, recommendations, deployments and education, and stick around to make sure everything works!
Google Anthos enables true hybrid computing across your physical data centre and Google Cloud Platform. Anthos components include GKE and GKE On-Prem, Istio, and Anthos Config Management. The core component of Anthos, GKE On-Prem has been tested, tuned, and hardened, and is available to support hybrid GKE deployments for real and substantial client workloads. Arctiq has been an influential global go-to-market partner with Google for the Anthos program, and can help our clients enable your hybrid cloud capabilities.
Arctiq workshops are focused on real-world enablement in a condensed format in order to get your team up to speed quickly, and empowered with the knowledge they need to actually get the job done. These courses are developed entirely by Arctiq with content based on actual implementations. Instructor-led and on-site, material is developed and delivered by the same architects who deploy and troubleshoot GCP environments on a regular basis. Google-focused courses include Infra-as-Code, GKE Enablement, and Machine Learning.
