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.

Chapter 2: Designing, Planning, and Prototyping a GCP Network

In this chapter, you will learn how to design, plan, and prototype a Google Cloud Platform (GCP) network. The chapter is divided into four parts.

First, we will describe the main strategies for failover and disaster recovery (DR) that you should use when designing your network in GCP. Next, we will focus on how you should design your virtual private cloud (VPC) in terms of Internet Protocol (IP) ranges for subnets, routing, and interconnections with other VPCs. Moreover, this section will describe how to design security in your VPC.

We will also describe how you should design the interconnection between your on-premises and VPC networks. You will discover all the GCP interconnection options, and you will learn how to prototype highly available interconnection solutions.

The last section describes how to design, plan, and secure the Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE) network to support Kubernetes Pods and Services for...
