Improving Network Performance II
In this hands-on lab learn through some real-word scenarios, re-create the environments, and work on improving network performance using load balancers and other Google Cloud products. At the end, you'll go through an exercise for increasing the window size to improve bandwidth.
This lab was adapted from blog posts by Colt McAnlis: Profiling GCP's Load Balancers, Removing the Need for Caching Servers, with GCP's Load Balancers, and The Bandwidth Delay Problem. Colt blogs about Google Cloud network performance on Medium.
Some of the resources you'll need for this lab have been created for you to save time, and some you will create.
