Get Cloud Native Enterprise Toolkit (GCN) is a set of commercially supported and fully open-source tools and processes which enable any Kubernetes platform to deliver a common system for enterprise users across all industries. This enables more reliable and trusted deployments of Kubernetes on any infrastructure, with a focus on public and private cloud. In highly regulated industries, the shift to public cloud has happened at a slower pace, but Kubernetes adoption is solving the challenges that slow cloud adoption down for most organizations.

Get Cloud Native is one of the first fully open source and commercially-supported offerings that provide a set of default cluster services that go beyond just basic automation of the installation and running of Kubernetes on a few nodes or on a laptop. Users can expect proven and tested defaults for networking, monitoring, logging, service routing, storage and more as GCN solves the “last-mile” complexities of running microservices and distributed applications in the enterprise. GCN is built to run reliably on any major public cloud provider like Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform, and Microsoft Azure and is also compatible with Red Hat’s OpenShift. This broad compatibility offers an onramp for businesses which need to adopt new technology to drive innovation and allow for continuing sustainability.
