Working with Google Container Registry (GCR)

Working with Google Container Registry (GCR)

n this article, we are going to talk about how to work with Google Container Registry (GCR). At the end of this tutorial, you will learn how to configure GCR and publish docker images.

Most of the time, developers store their docker images in the Docker Hub. If you are working on a project and you have private images that need to be stored in a private place, most of the time developers configure a nexus server and store it there.

But Google Cloud’s GCR is a perfect solution to this problem. With GCR, you can store, manage, and secure your Docker container images easily. All you want is a service account with proper access permission. GCR is not just a docker repository. You can easily set up CI/CD pipelines with integration to Cloud Build or deploy directly to Google Kubernetes Engine, App Engine, Cloud Functions, or Firebase with GCR.

Before begin, you need to have a GCloud account. If you are new to Google Cloud, you can activate the free tier, which provides you with 20+ free products and $300 free credit to fully explore and conduct an assessment of Google Cloud Platform. You won’t be charged until you choose to upgrade. So, don’t be afraid; go ahead and create an account.


Once you created the account, you can always check your remaining free credits from the Billing tab.

Then create a project. Make sure billing is enabled in the created project.
