Google Cloud Certified Professional Cloud Network Engineer Guide

By: Maurizio Ipsale, Mirko Gilioli

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 scale your application workload using the instance groups offered by GCP. External HTTP(S), SSL proxies, and TCP proxy load balancers are ideal for applications that require a global footprint and they reside in different GCP regions across the globe. On the contrary, internal HTTP(S), external network TCP/UDP, and internal TCP/UDP load balancers are a perfect fit for distributing workloads to applications running within a GCP region.

Additionally, you learned how to enable CDN with Google Cloud CDN to serve static content, such as images stored in Google Cloud Storage buckets, to global end users to reduce network latency.

Now that you have learned how to implement network services with GCP, in the next chapter, you will learn how to implement hybrid connectivity.
