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 a hybrid network

In this section, you will learn how to design the hybrid networking between your on-premises subnets and your Google Cloud VPC subnets. You will understand which solutions Google Cloud offers you in terms of interconnections and when these should be used. Dedicated Interconnect, Partner Interconnect, Direct and Partner Peering, and Cloud VPN will be explained in order to give you a broad view of all possible interconnection solutions. Additionally, you will learn what Cloud Router is and how you can use it to build failover and DR strategies for your hybrid networking.

Cloud Interconnect design (for example, Dedicated versus Partner)

When it comes to designing interconnections between your on-premises network and Google Cloud VPC, the first thing you must consider is the location of your on-premises edge network. Indeed, if your network meets the Google Cloud network in a supported colocation facility, then a virtual local-area network (VLAN) attachment...
