Cloud Pub/Sub


What is it

Cloud Pub/Sub is a fully managed product for distributed messaging, eventing and queueing.

When to use it

Use Cloud Pub/Sub for publish/subscribe use cases such as event streams and message queues.

Publishers to Cloud Pub/Sub can be, for example, internal backend services, external systems at the edge (such as truck telematics applications) or automatically emitted events by other Google Cloud products, such as Cloud Storage.

Subscribers to Cloud Pub/Sub are typically event-handling Cloud Run applications that might perform event handling logic, or store the event data into an analytics storage such as BigQuery.
