Looking to test Google Cloud Run services out?

Check out the Google $300 free tier and use Google Cloud Run to test a fully scalable WordPress containerized (no server infrastructure required) website instance.

HOWTO info on this process is below:

With regard to deploying container images from Container Registry, as documented in Cloud Storage network pricing, you are not charged if you deploy to a region located on the same continent as your container image. For example, deployments to a Cloud Run service in us-central1 or us-east1 from or are free of charge.

Cloud Run charges you only for the resources you use, rounded up to the nearest 100 millisecond. Note that each of these resources have a free tier. Your total Cloud Run bill will be the sum of the resources in the pricing table.

When setting concurrency higher than one request at a time, multiple requests can share the allocated CPU and memory.

You can use the Google Cloud Platform Pricing Calculator to estimate the cost of using Cloud Run.

The following pricing tables use the GiB-second unit. A GiB-second means for example running a 1 gibibyte instance for 1 second, or running a 256 mebibyte instance for 4 seconds. The same principle applies for the vCPU-second unit. CUD refers to committed use discounts.

If you pay in a currency other than USD, the prices listed in your currency on Cloud Platform SKUs apply.

The free tier usage is aggregated across projects by billing account and resets every month; you are billed only for usage past the free tier. The free tier is applied as a spending based discount using Tier 1 pricing.

You are billed only for the CPU and memory allocated during billable time, rounded up to the nearest 100 milliseconds.

For a given container instance, active billable time occurs when:

  • The container instance is starting
  • The container instance is shut down and the SIGTERM signal is handled.
  • At least one request is being processed by the container instance. Active billable time begins with the start of the first request and ends at the end of the last request, as shown in the following diagram:Billable time

If you set a minimum number of container instances, you are also billed for the time these instances are not active (idle billable time).

The billable time aggregated from all Cloud Run container instances is exposed as a Cloud Monitoring metric. See container/billable_instance_time metric for more details.
