Google cloud run combines serverless and containers together

Serverless and containers are the two biggest two trends in application development in recent years. Google then combined them both and announced a new product called cloud run, in the meantime Cloud run is also specifically designed for Google kubernetes engine to run on google’s version of kubernetes. Cloud Run comes across as a clusterless and serverless container execution environment. After the launch of Cloud Run some participants even compared it with AWS Fargate and Azure Container Instances but still google cloud run takes a different approach than the other serverless container providers. 

Cloud Run 

Cloud run takes docker containers and instantly gives a URL , which is completely unique in the industry. Google Cloud Run takes care of everything from the top end of SSL provisioning and routing, all the way down to actually running the container and you only pay by the hundred milliseconds of what you use and also highly end - to - end managed. This applies for GKE tools as well with the same kind of benefits ,except for developers running their containers on Google’s GKE version of Kubernetes. Developers can take the exact same experience, the same code they’ve written and just a one click to target the destination they want by using the G Cloud command line, the UI or Google Console. 

Knative Connection 

Knative is an open source platform introduced by Google and it is built on top of kubernetes. Cloud is based on Knative , its runtime environment is fully managed by Google cloud Platform and it lets you run your serverless workloads anywhere you choose. Serverless makes a developer's life easier. ince Kubernetes is an infrastructure layer, developers work with the operations team to deploy and scale apps. Knative removes the ops layer by enabling developers to directly target Kubernetes. Google provides the exact level of resources that is required to run the operation instead of loading their application on a particular virtual virtual machine. Yoo only have to pay for what you use at any given moment because once it's done, the resources go away. 

Knative has three core elements: 

  1. Build: This component is responsible for generating a container image from source code. 
  2. Serving: This component simplifies exposing an app without having to configure resources such as ingress and a load balancer.
  3. Eventing: Eventing provides a mechanism to consume and produce events in a pub/sub style. This is useful for invoking code based on external or internal events.

Zoom’s Work Transformation Summit on Jan. 19: Fresh Approaches for Moving Forward

These past two years have undoubtedly reshaped work. More specifically, these past two years — shuffling between remote, in-person, and hybrid work scenarios — reshaped what employees expect out of their jobs, how they want to work, and what the office means to them.  Organizations are challenged with making big decisions to meet those expectations, and those decisions will dramatically alter how they hire, manage their facilities, buy technology, and maintain productivity. Simply adjusting policies and retooling previous work models won’t do. It takes a comprehensive reimagining. To help organizations navigate this next phase of work, Zoom is hosting our  Work Transformation Summit  on Jan. 19, a free, half-day virtual event designed to provide you and your organization with meaningful strategies, creative approaches, and innovative solutions for redefining work.  Summit attendees will have the opportunity to hear from peers and industry experts on the importance of embracing technolo

Access well-known educational technology tools straight from Google Classroom.

  We're making it simpler for instructors to use popular EdTech products that are most effective for their class right in Google Classroom with a new seamless integration of single sign-on, assigning, and grading. With the help of this feature, teachers can find, assign, and grade interesting content for their classes, and both teachers and students can access their EdTech tools without needing to navigate to other websites or apps or go through a cumbersome login process that requires remembering numerous usernames and passwords. This offers a more simplified experience when using technology to affect learning, in addition to saving instructors and students time. We partnered with 15+ EdTech companies to build custom add-ons, including Kahoot!, Pear Deck, IXL, and Nearpod.  Admins :  In order for educators to use add-ons, district administrators must provide access to them. For further information on how to install the add-ons functionality and specific add-ons for a domain, OU, o
