Google Cloud Run is a new offering from Google that is currently in Beta. One of the main use cases is to enable running stateless HTTP containers on a fully managed environment or in your own GKE cluster.
Cloud Run is part of the Anthos solution offering and falls under the Serverless category. Arctiq has been getting lots of Anthos technical content out since Google Next19, in this blog I will give you a deep dive into some of the Cloud Run capabilities. Also have a look at our blog on Knative, Knative extends Kubernetes with the developer experience of serverless and enables many of the technical capabilities that ship with Cloud Run. Another Interesting aspect is Pricing Cloud Run charges you only for the resources you use, billed to the nearest 100 milliseconds. More info here
