Google today announced the general availability of Google Cloud Console, a mobile app for monitoring and managing infrastructure running on the Google Cloud Platform. It’s available on both iOS and Android.
With this app, you can respond to incidents for cloud instances, keep an eye on billing, and check compute, storage and networking utilization. The Android version of the app even allows you to SSH into a virtual machine or reset it, Google Cloud Platform product manager Steward Fife wrote in a blog post on the news.
Google Cloud Console was first unveiled in March. At the time, there was only a beta for Android. Now it’s on both Android and iOS, and the app is no longer in beta.
The availability of the feature on multiple mobile operating systems makes the Google Cloud Platform more accessible to developers and operations people tasked with maintaining the infrastructure that applications depend on. Amazon Web Services, the market-leading public cloud that Google is competing with, has its own mobile app for managing infrastructure, the AWS Console. Now Google can more effectively fight on this front of the public cloud war.
