About this event

Compute Engine lets you create virtual machines that run 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 is designed to be fast and to offer strong consistency of performance.

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


What you'll do

  • Create a virtual machine with the Cloud Console.
  • Create a virtual machine with the gcloud command line.
  • Deploy a web server and connect it to a virtual machine.
