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.

Configuring Cloud Content Delivery Network (CDN)

Cloud CDN can be enabled for many different types of content, either static or dynamic, from the following categories:

  • Compute Engine instance groups
  • Network Endpoint Groups (NEGs)
  • Cloud Storage buckets

To give you an idea of how to configure Cloud CDN, in this section, we will show you how to enable the cache implementation in Cloud CDN for a Cloud Storage bucket.

We will create a bucket with two files that can be publicly accessed from the internet, as shown in the following screenshot:

Now, let's create a multi-regional external HTTP(S) load balancer, as we saw in the previous section. When we use a multi-regional external HTTP(S) load balancer (in the Premium Tier), it uses a global external IP address.

Cloud CDN can have a service or a bucket as a backend, as shown in the following screenshot...
