GitLab Announces Expanded Integrations with Google Cloud
June 12, 2024

GitLab announced the public beta of expanded integrations with Google Cloud that will help developers work more effectively, quickly, and productively.

The integrations combine GitLab's comprehensive DevSecOps platform capabilities, including source code management, planning, CI/CD workflow, and advanced security and compliance with Google Identity Access Management, Workload Identity Federation, Google Cloud Artifact Registry, and Google Compute Engine.

From the GitLab platform, joint customers have complete visibility across the entire software development lifecycle, including integrated Google Cloud services, without context switching between systems.

Key customer benefits of the integrations include:

- Streamlined authentication: Integrating GitLab with Google Identity Access Management and Workload Identity Federation provides customers with centralized authentication and identity management through their existing identity providers to help decrease the risk associated with service account keys and minimize management overhead for rotating keys.

- Faster application deployment to Google Cloud: Automating CI/CD with GitLab runner configuration automation and a library of Google Cloud Services components in GitLab’s CI/CD catalog enables customers to simplify pipeline deployment from within GitLab.

- Improved developer experience: Providing complete visibility into the software delivery process with a unified data plane to help minimize context switching and improve developer productivity. Customers can view their images in Google Artifact Registry repositories from within GitLab, giving them full traceability of their build artifacts across GitLab and Google Cloud.

“Google Cloud offers developers the choice, capability, and security to work effectively and productively at every step of the software development lifecycle,” said Gabe Monroy, Google Cloud, VP, Developer Experience. “The expanded availability of these integrations between Google Cloud and GitLab brings more capabilities for developers in each of these critical areas, including full visibility into performance metrics, security and compliance policies, and insights across the application development lifecycle without context switching between multiple systems.”

“Together, GitLab and Google Cloud are enabling organizations to remove silos, measure and optimize performance, meet security and compliance standards, and boost productivity and efficiency,” said Emilio Salvador, GitLab, VP, Strategy and Developer Relations. “By providing complete visibility across software development workflows, we are empowering joint customers to ship secure software faster while delivering a great developer experience.”
