Back in March, we announced the availability of Google Cloud Launcher where (at the time) you could launch more than 120 popular open source application packages that have been configured by Bitnami or Google Click to Deploy. Since then, we have received many customer requests for additional solutions. We heard you!
Today, less than three months after launch, we have added 25 new solutions to Cloud Launcher. Recent additions include: Chef, Crate, OpenCart, Sharelock, Codiad and SimpleInvoices - and new solutions are being added on an ongoing basis.
We are also announcing the addition of 14 new operating systems to Cloud Launcher. These include Windows, Ubuntu, Redhat, SUSE, Debian and CentOS. Moreover, we’ve simplified the initial creation flow to make things even faster and simpler.

To help users compare these solutions, we’ve updated the Cloud Launcher interface with detailed information on pricing, support (for OS), and free trial.

And finally, in line with our vision of providing customers with complete solutions that can be rapidly deployed, Google Cloud Monitoring is now integrated out of the box with 50 solutions. Built-in reports for components such as MySQL, Apache, Cassandra, Tomcat, PostgreSQL, and Redis provide DevOps an integrated view into their application.
