Google Cloud launches fully managed cron job scheduler for enterprises

Google Cloud has announced the general availability of its new service called Cloud Scheduler. Announced at Google Cloud Next, the Cloud Scheduler is a fully managed cron job scheduler that will allow enterprises to schedule big data jobs, cloud infrastructure operations, run batch, etc.

Enterprises will now be able to use industry standard OAuth/OpenID Connect to securely invoke HTTP targets on a schedule to reach the services that run on Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE), Compute Engine, Cloud Run, Cloud Functions, or on-premise systems.
