Pricing and Quota

Container Builder charges for build-minutes consumed above a certain threshold.

A build-minute is incurred for every minute that a build initiated by Container Builder is in process. Build-minutes are not incurred for the time that a build is queued. Charges are accrued to the billing account associated with the Google Cloud Platform Console project that initiated the build.

Item Cost
First 120 build-minutes per day per billing account No charge*
Additional build minutes $0.0034 / build-minute
* Promotional free tier of 120 free build-minutes per day is subject to change.

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

In addition, customers might incur costs for storing an image in Google Container Registry. Refer to the pricing page of that product for more information.


Each Cloud Platform Console project is granted quota to run one build at a time. When this quota is filled, requests for additional builds are queued and processed serially after the running build completes.

From time to time, Container Builder might allow more than one concurrent build per project, but users should not expect this behavior and should design their use within the quota limit of one concurrent build per project.

Google may change this restriction at any time.
