- Scalable and fully managed
- Build on the same fully managed service that powers our biggest customers.
- Rate and retry controls
- Control the execution by setting the rate at which tasks are dispatched, the maximum number of attempts, and the minimum amount of time to wait between attempts.
- Dashboard and command line interfaces
- Manage, monitor, and inspect your queues and tasks from the Cloud Console interface of the gcloud command line.
- Guaranteed delivery
- Cloud Tasks guarantees at-least-once delivery and most tasks are delivered exactly once.
- HTTP targets
- Add tasks targeting any HTTP service running on Compute Engine, Kubernetes Engine, Cloud Run, Cloud Functions or on-prem systems in a secure fashion using industry standard OAuth/OICD authentication.
- Task de-duplication
- Tasks added multiple times will only be dispatched once.
- Future scheduling
- Control the time at which a task is run.
- Popular Languages
- Use client libraries in Java, Python, Node.js, PHP, and Go. Or enqueue tasks using the REST API from any language and anywhere.
“Cloud Tasks allow us to focus on the core requirements of the application we’re developing, instead of other utility requirements. We’ve been using Cloud Tasks extensively: From handling high volumes of notifications between applications which reside on different platforms, to data ingestion/migration tasks and the delegation, trigger, or control of workloads. After using Cloud Tasks, our development velocity has been given a significant boost and overall architecture simplified.”— Jonathan Liversidge, IT Director, A1 Comms
“Cloud Tasks is a great product for latency sensitive, user facing, requests. With Cloud Tasks we can decouple operations that are computational intensive, network dependent, and/or long running so we don’t keep our users waiting unnecessarily. The performance has been excellent and Cloud Tasks has really helped us tie together the different microservices in our architecture.”— Karl Oskar Mattsson, CTO, Ponty Technology AB
