Why do I need this?

Understanding how to connect Cloud Run with a database in GCP is essential for scalable and flexible web and microservices. Cloud Run provides a serverless environment for containerized apps, eliminating concerns about infrastructure. However, many applications require data storage. By linking Cloud Run with GCP databases, apps can efficiently handle data. This setup is ideal for stateless applications on Cloud Run needing persistent storage or when leveraging GCP databases for analytics while running application logic serverlessly. Mastering this interconnection ensures optimal cloud-native applications on GCP.
