Kubernetes 3rd Anniversary 

Google Cloud Services Platform (GCSP) - Hybrid and Multi-cloud application development stack, built on Kubernetes and Istio - custom-configured, enterprise-hardened, and delivered by Google.

GKE On-Prem - A core component of CSP, with GKE On-Prem, customers get the Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE) experience in their data center.  The first private cloud option for deployment is vSphere 6.5 in alpha release this fall and Google will continue to look at the hardware and other virtualization environments.  In a parallel statement, Cisco Hybrid Cloud for Google Cloud will be the first GKE-certified hybrid cloud platform, although any direct relationship to GKE On-prem is unclear.

Project Knative - (Knative on Github) it provides fundamental building blocks for serverless workloads in Kubernetes, empowering the creation of modern, container-based and cloud-native applications which can be deployed anywhere on Kubernetes. OpenShift + Knative (blog).

Istio 1.0 - Istio service mesh is now version 1.0, and available as a managed add-on to GKE, as well as being integrated into Google Stackdriver. PodCTL #23 - Microservices with Istio

Google Cloud Platform Marketplace (pre-announced) - Marketplace of packaged applications to run on GCP and Google Cloud services (e.g. Kubernetes) 

GKE Serverless Containers Add-On - Similar to AWS Fargate, Google announced an early-trial serverless infrastructure option to GKE , simplifying infrastructure operations management.
