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.

Within a cluster, you can create pools of nodes that are identical to each other. When you create a cluster, the number and type of nodes you specify becomes the default-node-pool. You can add more nodes to this pool or create a different set of node pools that is managed by the same cluster. Creating additional node pools comes in handy when you have a containerized application with a different set of resource requirements.

To create a node pool:

  1. Click on the Kubernetes cluster and click on EDIT and scroll to the bottom to find Node Pools:
  1. Here you can either change the Size of the current node pool, the default-pool, delete it, or click on Add node pool. This opens up a fresh set of options to add to your additional node pool:
  1. Click Save to deploy the second node pool. This deploys two more nodes in the compute engine that are part of the pool and are managed...
