Overview of this book

Google Cloud, the public cloud platform from Google, has a variety of networking options, which are instrumental in managing a networking architecture. This book will give you hands-on experience of implementing and securing networks in Google Cloud Platform (GCP). You will understand the basics of Google Cloud infrastructure and learn to design, plan, and prototype a network on GCP. After implementing a Virtual Private Cloud (VPC), you will configure network services and implement hybrid connectivity. Later, the book focuses on security, which forms an important aspect of a network. You will also get to grips with network security and learn to manage and monitor network operations in GCP. Finally, you will learn to optimize network resources and delve into advanced networking. The book also helps you to reinforce your knowledge with the help of mock tests featuring exam-like questions. By the end of this book, you will have gained a complete understanding of networking in Google Cloud and learned everything you need to pass the certification exam.

Configuring Service Directory and DNS

To start configuring Service Directory, we need to create a namespace first. This is accessible from the Navigation Menu; then we select Network services and we click Service Directory, as Figure 8.15 shows:

Important Note

When doing this for the first time, you will need to enable the Service Directory API as with most of the GCP services.

You will create a namespace after you register your first service. Click on the REGISTER SERVICE button at the top. A new wizard will guide you to the service creation.

You can choose between Private Service Connect and Standard service types. Choose Private Service Connect when you want to send API requests to the internal IP address of a private service connect endpoint. Select Standard as the service type for any other case, as Figure 8.16 shows:
