Google Cloud Self-Paced Labs

Overview

Google Compute Engine lets you create virtual machines running different operating systems, including multiple flavors of Linux (Debian, Ubuntu, Suse, Red Hat, CoreOS) and Windows Server, on Google infrastructure. You can run thousands of virtual CPUs on a system that has been designed to be fast and to offer strong consistency of performance.

In this hands-on lab you'll learn how to create virtual machine instances of various machine types using the Google Cloud Platform (GCP) Console and using the gcloud command line. You'll also learn how to connect an NGINX web server to your virtual machine.

Although you can easily copy and paste commands from the lab to the appropriate place, students should type the commands themselves to reinforce their understanding of the core concepts

What you'll do

  • Create a virtual machine with the GCP Console

  • Create a virtual machine with gcloud command line

  • Deploy a web server and connect it to a virtual machine

Prerequisites

  • Familiarity with standard Linux text editors such as vim, emacs, or nano will be helpful
