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.

In this chapter, you learned how to design a GCP network. You have learned the principal strategies for failover and DR to apply to your VPC design. Then, you have been through the best practices of VPC design, understanding how IP ranges, routing, and VPC interconnection should be designed. Moreover, you learned how to design hybrid networking between your on-premises and VPC networks and how to build a network topology that is resilient to faults. Additionally, you went through the design strategies and best practices for a GKE network.

Now that you have solid knowledge about designing VPC networks in GCP, it is time to go on to implementation. Indeed, in the next chapter, you will learn how to implement a VPC in GCP.
