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.

Let's learn more about Stackdriver error reporting by deploying a simple app on Google App Engine. We will then introduce and capture an error in the app.

In your main GCP console, go to your side bar menu and click on App Engine | Dashboard. Make sure you are in your desired project and billing is enabled. I am using the Stackdriver-test-project that we created earlier.

You will see a quick start guide on the right. Let's follow that guide and deploy our Hello World app in a Python...
