Sachin Gupta, Google GM and VP of product for infrastructure-as-a-service, used a blog to explain corporate customers can run Google’s hardware and software in operators’ edge locations to take advantage of 5G and LTE services.
The set-up can be run at any of its 140 global network edge and/or customer locations.
Google Distributed Cloud runs on Anthos open source software the company developed to extend its Kubernetes platform.
A Distributed Cloud Hosted service will operate independently of Google Cloud with a localised control plane and is set for launch in 2022.
The company is also previewing a Distributed Cloud Edge service providing businesses and operators a way to run core and radio functions alongside enterprise applications which Gupta claimed will enable operators to “offer high-speed bandwidth with private 5G and localised compute”.
Hardware vendors on board include Intel, Nvidia, Dell, HPE, Cisco and NetApp.Subscribe to our daily newsletter Back
