Coming soon vs gitlab


Cloud Build lets you build software quickly across all languages. Get complete control over defining custom workflows for building, testing, and deploying across multiple environments such as VMs, serverless, Kubernetes, or Firebase.



  • Google CloudBuild and GitLab partnered to create a demo for Google Next 2018. This showed 2 use cases:
    • Using GitLab for SCM-only and CloudBuild for CI/CD
    • Using GitLab CI/CD test and deploy, but offloading the build stage to CloudBuild

    Full details, as well as links to the demo and sample code are on the GitLab blog.
