How does Cloud Run compares to App Engine?

I thought Cloud Run is more comparable to PaaS services like Heroku. But on the recap video on Compute services we only heard about App Engine.

What are the main differences between App Engine and Cloud Run?


Yeah it looks like the course does not cover Cloud Run. Damn shame. But one more point to note about Cloud Run is that they don’t charge you when you don’t receive requests.

Here is google’s answer: Cloud Run – Cloud Run is a managed compute platform that enables you to run stateless containers that are invocable via web requests or Pub/Sub events. Cloud Run is serverless. App Engine – Google App Engine is a Platform as a Service and cloud computing platform for developing and hosting web applications in Google-managed data centers. Applications are sandboxed and run across multiple servers.


If App Engine is beanstalk equivalent then what’s the AWS equivalent for Cloud Run … CodeDeploy ?
