Google Cloud Certified Professional Cloud Network Engineer Guide

By: Maurizio Ipsale, Mirko Gilioli

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.

Designing the overall network architecture

In this section, you will learn what the main strategies are for failover and DR. You will learn what kinds of designing options for high availability (HA) in GCP networking you can adopt and what the recommended Domain Name System (DNS) strategies in a hybrid cloud environment are that you can use in Google Cloud. Moreover, you will learn what the most appropriate load-balancing options are that you can use in your design. Then, you will go through the optimization design of latency in GCP. Finally, you will learn about Google Cloud's network security strategy.

Failover and DR strategy

When you design new cloud architecture to support your services, it is especially important to have a well-tested DR plan in case something goes wrong. Indeed, DR strategies begin by analyzing two important key metrics that characterize the business impact. These are outlined here:

  1. Recovery Time Objective (RTO): This metric is the maximum...
