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.

Chapter 5: Implementing Hybrid Connectivity in GCP

In this chapter, you will implement hybrid interconnection between on-premises and Google Cloud networks using different approaches. You will learn how to configure Dedicated Interconnect with Google Cloud colocation facilities, as well as how to configure Partner Interconnect with both Layer 2 and Layer 3 connections. Furthermore, the chapter focuses on classical virtual private networks (VPNs) and high-availability (HA) VPNs, site-to-site Internet Protocol Security (IPsec) VPN implementations, and how dynamic routing can be used in Google Cloud Platform (GCP). Additionally, the chapter will focus on an IPsec VPN implementation to improve HA in hybrid connectivity.

This chapter covers the following main topics:

  • Configuring Interconnect
  • Configuring a site-to-site IPsec VPN
  • Diving into Cloud Router
