Why use Google Cloud Build?
Lets look at some reasons why the GCP Cloud Build tool could work for you.
What is Google Cloud Build?
Extremely fast builds
Access machines connected via Google’s global network to significantly reduce your build time. Run builds on high-CPU VMs or cache source code, images, or other dependencies to further increase your build speed.
Automate your deployments
Create pipelines as a part of your build steps to automate deployments. Deploy using built-in integrations to Google Kubernetes Engine, App Engine, Cloud Functions, and Firebase. Use Spinnaker with Cloud Build for creating and executing complex pipelines.
Support for multi-cloud
Deploy to multiple clouds as a part of your CI/CD pipeline. Cloud Build comes with builder images which have languages and tools already installed. Likewise containerized tasks of Cloud Build are fully portable across different clouds.
Commit to deploy in minutes
Going from PR to build, test, and deploy can’t be simpler. Set up triggers to automatically build, test, or deploy source code when you push changes to GitHub, Cloud Source Repositories, or a Bitbucket repository.
Run builds on infrastructure protected by Google Cloud security. Get full control over who can create and view your builds, what source code can be used, and where your build artifacts can be stored.
