Cloud Run is a managed compute platform that enables you to run
stateless containers that are invocable via web requests or Pub/Sub
events. Cloud Run is serverless: it abstracts away all
infrastructure management, so you can focus on what matters most — building
great applications. It is built from

Create a secure two-service application running on Cloud Run. This application is a Markdown editor which includes a public "frontend" service which anyone can use to compose markdown text, and a private "backend" service which renders Markdown text to HTML.
Troubleshoot a broken Cloud Run service using Stackdriver tools for discovery and a local development workflow for investigation. This tutorial uses a sample project that results in runtime errors when deployed, which you troubleshoot to find and fix the problem.

Web services: REST APIs backend
Modern mobile apps commonly rely on RESTful backend APIs to provide current views of application data and separation for frontend and backend development teams. API services running on Cloud Run allow developers to persist data reliably on managed databases such as Cloud SQL or Firestore (NoSQL). Logging in to Cloud Run grants users access to app‐resource data stored in Cloud Databases.
Back‐office administration often requires documents, spreadsheets, and other custom integrations, and running a vendor‐supplied web application. Hosting the containerized internal web application on Cloud Run means it is always ready and you are only billed when it is used.
Build Cloud Run data processing applications that transform lightweight data as it arrives and store it as structured data. Transformations can be triggered from Google Cloud sources. When a .csv file is created, an event is fired and delivered to a Cloud Run service. Data is then extracted, structured, and stored in a BigQuery table.

Schedule a monthly job with Cloud Scheduler to generate invoices using a Cloud Run service. Because containers containing custom binaries can be deployed to Cloud Run, it is able to run in a PDF generation tool like LibreOffice in a serverless way, which means only paying when you are generating invoices.
Connect your operations together with an event‐driven approach. Cloud Run scales on demand while implementing a webhook target, pushing events in the form of requests and only charging you when you receive and process the event. React to events from GitHub or Slack, or send webhooks when a purchase is made, a job is ready, or an alert is fired with a service that can react on a just‐in‐time basis to trigger a microservice in your infrastructure.
Learn how to migrate Node.js web apps that are running on Heroku to Cloud Run on Google Cloud. This tutorial is intended for architects and product owners who want to migrate their apps from Heroku to managed services on Google Cloud.
Modernization path for .NET applications on Google Cloud
This document looks at the common limitations of monolithic applications and describes a gradual yet structured process for modernizing them. This document is intended for cloud architects, system administrators, and CTOs who are familiar with Windows and the .NET ecosystem and want to learn more about what modernization involves.
