KeyBank will collaborate with Google Cloud on their Cloud Services Platform. Cloud Services Platform brings the benefits of Kubernetes's open source container orchestration, and Istio's open source service mesh, to KeyBank's datacenters; making our systems more reliable, more secure, and delivering new capabilities faster, with little to no disruption to our clients.

Cloud Services Platform is hybrid cloud software for application modernization from Google that provides consistent, automated operations on-premises and in the cloud. It combines Kubernetes and Istio with Google's infrastructure, security and operations practices to increase velocity, improve reliability and manage governance at scale. Cloud Services Platform is extensible through an open ecosystem.

"We are creating a new kind of bank for our customers, and Google's creation of Kubernetes and Istio made them the obvious cloud to collaborate with as we look to bring containerized applications into our data centers," said Keith Silvestri, Chief Technology Officer. "Using Cloud Services Platform for our hybrid deployment will be like having hundreds of Google developers all working to build us the best platform for delivering modern banking services to our customers."
