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 3: Implementing a GCP Virtual Private Cloud (VPC)

In this chapter, you will start implementing Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) resources through case studies and practical exercises. You will learn how to configure VPC subnets, and static and dynamic routing using Cloud Router. Moreover, you will configure VPC intercommunication through VPC peering, and you will understand how to share VPC networks across multiple projects using services such as Shared VPC. Additionally, you will configure network address translation (NAT) for your Google Compute Engine (GCE) instances with Cloud NAT. Finally, you will discover how to implement security in your VPC by configuring firewall rules.

Therefore, the chapter will comprise two main sections, as follows:

  • Configuring VPC networks
  • Configuring and managing firewall rules
