Cloud Pub/Sub is a simple, reliable, scalable foundation for stream analytics and event-driven computing systems. As part of Google Cloud’s stream analytics solution, the service ingests event streams and delivers them to Cloud Dataflow for processing and BigQuery for analysis as a data warehousing solution. Relying on the Cloud Pub/Sub service for delivery of event data frees you to focus on transforming your business and data systems with applications such as:

  • Real-time personalization in gaming
  • Fast reporting, targeting and optimization in advertising and media

Event data

Build multi-cloud and hybrid applications on open architecture

Syndicate data across projects and applications running on other clouds, or between cloud and on-premises apps. Cloud Pub/Sub easily fits in your existing environment via efficient client libraries for multiple languages, open REST/HTTP and gRPC service APIs, and an open source Apache Kafka connector.

Scale responsively and automatically

Scale to hundreds of millions of messages per second and pay only for the resources you use. There are no partitions or local instances to manage, reducing operational overhead. Data is automatically and intelligently distributed across data centers over our unique, high-speed private network.

Scale responsively

Bring reliability and security tools to real-time apps

Use Cloud Pub/Sub to simplify scalable, distributed systems. All published data is synchronously replicated across availability zones to ensure that messages are available to consumers for processing as soon as they are ready. Fine-grained access controls allow for sophisticated cross-team and organizational data sharing. And end-to-end encryption adds security to your pipelines.
