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 4: Configuring Network Services in GCP

In this chapter, you will learn how to implement network services in Google Cloud Platform (GCP). More specifically, this chapter talks about load balancing and implementing Cloud CDN in GCP. In the first section, you will learn how to configure the HTTP(S) Global Load Balancing and Internal Network Load Balancing solutions in GCP. Here, you will implement common solutions to scale your application workload globally or within a GCP region. Then, in the second section, you will implement Cloud CDN in combination with Google Cloud Storage to reduce network latency when serving static content to end users.

Therefore, in this chapter, we will cover the following topics:

  • Configuring load balancing
  • Implementing Cloud CDN
