Google has announced preview access via the API for the company’s Cloud Storage Transfer Service for on-prem data management. Using the Google Cloud REST API, developers will now be able to better manage data transfers on the Platform.
The updated documentation for the tool now includes demonstrations related to API utilization, in addition to the pre-existing instructions for use with the Cloud Console. It is important to note that preview features often change with very little notice, and sometimes disappear altogether.
Google highlighted this distinction in noting that:
“This feature is covered by the Pre-GA Offerings Terms of the Google Cloud Terms of Service. Pre-GA features may have limited support, and changes to pre-GA features may not be compatible with other pre-GA versions.”
