One Network: Cloud-Agnostic Service and Policy-Oriented Network Architecture

In this age of an interconnected world, One Network helps customers to simplify deployment of their products and services by providing a unified service and policy oriented network architecture that breaks down the boundaries of public and private clouds, different runtimes and traffic patterns.

Google Cloud networking evolved organically over time, which created friction for feature parity and interoperability between cloud products due to different infrastructure and policy enforcement points for internet traffic, service to service communication, for Kubernetes, serverless or VM-based runtimes and communication with on-prem and other public clouds.

In this presentation we will discuss One Network as a unified service networking architecture with the focus on:

  • Open Source proxies and control APIs as building blocks for cross runtimes, cross path and across public and private clouds

  • Uniform policies and policy enforcement on each path and secure by default application deployments

  • Opening converged network infrastructure to third party security, API management and traffic management SaaS developers

Thinking Like an Architect

Are architects supposed to be the smartest people on the team, making all the important decisions for developers to fill in the blanks? Certainly not. Rather, architects make everyone else smarter, for example by sharing decision models or revealing blind spots.

Renovate to Innovate: Fundamentals of Transforming Legacy Architecture

Renovating old buildings and homes is commonplace, but why is technological renovation often overlooked? Just like a big home renovation adds to the quality of life, a successful architectural renovation has an outsized impact on the pace of innovation.
