cloud.gov.au documentation

The platform for building the future.

cloud.gov.au is a place to run web apps, freeing up teams to focus on writing code that meets user needs. It provides a faster, safer, standard way to change web apps without impacting the user. It also provides real-time visibility and insight into web app usage, performance, and behaviour.

Combined, this makes it easy for government to release, monitor and grow user-facing digital services.
