Google Cloud Next 18 day 1 has concluded with various announcements that were sure to get undivided attention from IT professionals and managers. One of such important announcement was the launch of Google Cloud Build a new continuous integration and delivery platform.

Recognizing this huge potential for growth, Google has announced its cloud service that will facilitate organizations to build, test, and deploy software quickly that will streamline the whole development process.

What is Google Cloud Build?

In the past, applications often required substantial lead time and development cycles with higher risks of missing out product delivery deadlines. With this cloud build platform that offers fully managed, continuous integration / continuous delivery platform CI/CD, new versions can be released within days.

According to Google director, Cloud platform service is developed to allow you to modernize applications at your own pace. In other words, it will put it resource both on-premise and Google platform to work as consistent development, management, and control mechanism.

In addition to that, it also includes GKE policy management that will allow administrators to create a single source of truth for policies that automatically syncs with enrolled clusters.

GKE serverless will also be made available as an add-on that will allow customers to deploy serverless workloads on Kubernets Engine with just single step.

This new cloud build will work across a verity of environments that includes VMs, serverless, Kubernetes or Firebase. It will support Doker containers that will enhance developers’ capability with automated test and deployment.

The deployment will be made simple by using triggers subject to meeting certain condition allowing update launch automatically.  With this, you will be able to identify vulnerabilities in your packages before deploying so you can build locally and deploy in the client as per your requirements.
