In addition, Cloud Launcher tells you before you start running what processors you’ll get, how much disk space your app will take up, and how much you can expect to pay for your new Google Cloud Platform every month.
What’s attractive about this offer is that instead of burning IT hours setting up and configuring all the underlying runtime components and package, your developers and operators can spend their their time on design and writing code.
Cloud Launcher is about more than just pre-packaged programs such as WordPress, Drupal, or a Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP/Python/Perl (LAMP) stack. It also includes developer tools and stacks such as Apache Solr, Django, Gitlab, Jenkins, LAMP, Node.js, Ruby on Rails, and Tomcat.
