Deploying Metabase on Google Cloud Platform (GCP)

GCloud Setup

Make sure you have gcloud setup (developer tools):

gcloud auth login
gcloud auth configure-docker

Deploy Metabase to Google Cloud Registry

Metabase docker images are on Dockerhub here. However, I wanted these in Google Cloud Registry for performance and reliability reasons.

docker pull metabase/metabase:latest
  • hostname —
  • projectname — krustysfunhouse
  • Tag — metabase
docker tag metabase/metabase:latest
docker push

Console Login

Then login from gcloud via the console with the following:

gcloud beta compute ssh --zone "europe-west2-c" "metabasereporting" --project "krustysfunhouse"

Setting up Metabase

Metabase runs as a Java app and starts-up on port 3000. If you want to get into installing Nginx or GCP load Balancing that’s a different story.
