Google Cloud Functions
Launched in 2018 by Google Cloud (United States)
Whats is Google Cloud Functions?
Google Cloud Functions is a serverless execution environment for building and connecting cloud services. With Cloud Functions, you write simple, single-purpose functions that are attached to events emitted from your cloud infrastructure and services. Your function is triggered when an event being watched is fired. Your code executes in a fully managed environment. There is no need to provision any infrastructure or worry about managing any servers.
Connects and extends services to build complex applications
Cloud Functions lets you treat all Google and third-party cloud services as building blocks. Connect and extend them with code, and rapidly move from concept to production with end-to-end solutions and complex workflows. Further, integrate with third-party services that offer webhook integrations to quickly extend your application with powerful capabilities.
End-to-end development and diagnosability
Go from code to deploy, with integrated monitoring. Get full observability and diagnosability for your application with Cloud Trace and Cloud Debugger. Additionally, get support for local and disconnected development/debugging using open-sourced functions framework.
Serve users from zero to planet-scale without even thinking about any infrastructure. Cloud Functions automatically manages and scales underlying infrastructure with the size of workload.
No server management
Deploy your code and let Google run and scale it for you. Cloud Functions abstracts away all the underlying infrastructure so that you can focus on your code and build applications faster than ever before.
Runs code in response to events
Cloud Functions allows you to trigger your code from Google Cloud, Firebase, and Google Assistant, or call it directly from any web, mobile, or backend application via HTTP.
Pay only for what you use
You are only billed for your function’s execution time, metered to the nearest 100 milliseconds. You pay nothing when your function is idle. Cloud Functions automatically spins up and back down in response to events.
Avoid lock-in with open technology
Use an open-source FaaS (function as a service) framework to run functions across multiple environments and prevent lock-in. Supported environments include Cloud Functions, local development environment, on-premises, Cloud Run, Cloud Run for Anthos, and other Knative-based serverless environments.
Google Cloud Free Usage includes:
- 2 million invocations
- 400,000 GB-seconds
- 200,000 GHz-seconds of compute time
- 5GB of Internet egress traffic per month
Requests: $0.20 per 1M requests
Duration: $0.0000025 per GB-second
Data Transfer: $0.12 per Outbound Data GB
1 million invocations with an average time of 500ms and 128 MB of available memory would only cost approximately $1.57 USD

Backups help you restore lost data to your Cloud SQL instance. Additionally, if an instance is having a problem, you can restore it to a previous state by using the backup to overwrite it. Enable automated backups for any instance that contains necessary data. Backups protect your data from loss or damage.
Enabling automated backups, along with transaction logging, is also required for some operations, such as clone and replica creation.
Cloud SQL is integrated with Identity and Access Management (IAM) to help you better manage login access for users and service accounts to databases. This feature is called IAM database authentication.
Authentication is the process of verifying the identity of a user who is attempting to access an instance.
