Juju Support for Google Cloud Platform

This article is more than 8 years old.


As you may have noticed in our release notes, the recent release of a stable 1.23.2 Juju core (and its 1.23.3 follow-on) is packed with goodies such as support for systemd (and Vivid), improved proxy support for restrictive networks, new charm actions, as well as a first run at Juju service leader elections – and the list goes on!

For public cloud users of Ubuntu, we are particularly excited to let you know that this version includes support for Google Compute Engine (GCE). If you’re a Google Cloud Platform user, you can now spin up, scale, and modify production workloads easily and quickly, with our market-leading, open source universal modelling tool, Juju. If you are already a Juju user and thinking about using Google Cloud Platform, you can take your magic over to them and get going in no time.

Juju 1.23.2 release notes: https://jujucharms.com/docs/devel/reference-release-notes

This ties in very nicely to the upstream work (here and here) we’ve been doing in the past months, to make it easy to deploy Kubernetes servers using Juju, even on cloud environments that are not yet supported by the Kubernetes project.

On a related note, if you’re using Google Cloud Platform you’ve probably taken a look at the sleek Cloud Launcher Google have released recently. And if you looked closely, you also noticed that you can now spin up your Ubuntu VMs using this very friendly UI.

And at the time of writing, since the list is sorted by popularity, Ubuntu (unsurprisingly) has four of the top six spots.
