Google Cloud Run is one of the powerful serverless building blocks offered by Google Cloud; you can integrate with Firebase and other GCP services.
Easy to deploy, no abstractions, good web debugging console.
The only thing I didn’t like is the restriction to use Docker Image from Google Container Registry only, which is sometimes can be annoying to configure and authenticate with gcloud CLI SDK.
7. Pros & Cons
Pros of Cloud Run are the ease of setup with minimal steps, can quickly be integrated with other GCP services and firebase components.
Unlike IronWorker doesn’t come with tasks scheduling and don’t support using DockerHub hosted images.
