Cloud SDK provides downloadable, versioned archives for each release. Each
versioned archive contains a self-contained installation of Cloud SDK in a
google-cloud-sdk that can be copied to any location on your
Best uses for installing from versioned archives
Versioned archives are designed for non-interactive installation of specific versions of Cloud SDK and are useful when:
You require a specific version of Cloud SDK. For example:
- You are scripting with the gcloud CLI or one of the other Cloud SDK components and want to make sure that your scripts don't break as the result of a Cloud SDK update.
- You are using Cloud SDK as part of a CI (continuous integration) process or production system where you want to control your dependencies in order to ensure compatibility between parts of the system.
- You are performing automated deployments of Cloud SDK to many machines that must be in sync with each other.
- You are behind a proxy or firewall that requires additional configuration to be able to access the internet.
You don't want to perform an interactive installation.
