Google Cloud Platform Administration

By: Ranjit Singh Thakurratan

Overview of this book

On-premise data centers are costly to manage. If you need a data center but don’t want to deal with a physical one, Google Cloud Platform (GCP) is the solution. With GCP, you can build, test, and deploy applications on Google’s infrastructure. Google Cloud Platform Administration begins with GCP fundamentals, with the help of which you will deploy your first app and gain an understanding of Google Cloud architecture and services. Furthermore, you will learn how to manage Compute, networking, and storage resources. As you make your way through the book, you will learn how to track and manage GCP’s usage, monitoring, and billing access control. You will also be able to manage your GCP's access and permissions. In the concluding chapters, you will explore a list of different developer tools for managing and interacting with the GCP platform. By the end of this book, you will have learned how to effectively deploy workloads on GCP.

Live migration

A compute engine virtual machine instance can live migrate when a host system event occurs such as a software or a hardware update. This feature prevents unnecessary reboots of a virtual machine and can live migrate the virtual machine in the same zone. It is important to remember that live migration does not change the virtual machine configuration, but rather moves it to another host without any interruption.

It is important to remember that instances with GPUs cannot be live migrated. These virtual machines will need to be terminated. The compute engine provides a 60-minute notice before the virtual machine with the GPU is terminated. Preemptible instances cannot be live migrated either.
