Product Manager, Google Cloud Launcher

We created Cloud Launcher to help make sure you can easily discover new software and services, whether it’s a small internal tool or a large-scale enterprise application. We’re excited to share several new additions to this catalog and introduce an even easier way to try them out.

Cloud Launcher Virtual Machine solutions are now a part of the new Always Free program. This allows you to test and develop with participating products at no cost up to this program’s limits. With sustained use discounts, free trial credits you can use for 12 months, custom machine shapes and now the Always Free program, there has never been a better time to try out Launcher solutions.

Here are a few areas where we’ve made updates to the Cloud Launcher catalog:

  • Expanded VM solutions library: We now have even more solutions running within virtual machines, ranging from big data analytics to databases.
  • Bring Your Own License (BYOL): You asked, we answered. Cloud Launcher now supports BYOL for many solutions, allowing you to use Cloud Launcher as a deployment vehicle for your existing licenses.
  • Standalone SaaS solutions: Now, you can sign up for services directly from our SaaS partner sites. Over 15 services are now available via Cloud Launcher, with many more on the horizon.
