Our company currently uses Pub/Sub to reliably queue up messages that arrive rapidly from multiple instances. It's a very technical product and really only used by the development team rather than company-wide. The primary problem it addresses for us is its ability to handle scale and resilience in the case of errors.
  • Highly scalable.
  • Queues messages for up to 7 days if not acknowledged.
  • Would be nice if the queue could be extended beyond 7 days.
  • We found it a bit tricky replay unacknowledged messages when needed.
Scenarios where GCP Pub/Sub is well suited:
- Companies processing large amounts of data where eventual consistency is acceptable and the ability to recover from loss desirable.
- Companies already working with other GCP products (it integrates well with other products in the ecosystem).

Scenarios where GCP Pub/Sub is less well suited:
- If you're not queuing a huge amount of data it's probably overkill.

We have a highly distributed system of batch jobs. We use Google Cloud Pub/Sub in order to communicate between our front-end, orchestration software, and VMs running batch workloads. It serves as a key piece under the hood for running jobs for scientists and it allows us to distribute our workloads across specialized VMs.
  • A hands-off approach to publishing messages and subscribing to topics.
  • Easy to use APIs.
  • Useful, simple UI on cloud console to send messages for debugging, etc.
  • I can't think of missing functionality, but added functionality is always nice!
Pub/Sub is perfect for all distributed systems. Whether it be services talking to each other, being the middleman between applications and Cloud Functions, or sending messages between standalone VMs that rely on one another, Pub/Sub makes it easy to communicate between pieces. It is ideal as a publication/subscription software as a service.
