Google Virtual Private Cloud provides virtualized network functionality to Google Compute Engine virtual machine instances, Google Kubernetes Engine clusters, and the Google App Engine flexible environment. You'll begin by learning about Virtual Private Cloud and the creation of VPC networks and subnets. You'll learn how to launch Google Compute Engine instances with custom network configurations and configure Private Google Access. Next, you'll discover how to assign tags to VMs, create and manage routes, create ingress and egress firewalls, and use Cloud VPN to create a VPN between Google VPC and external networks. Finally, you'll learn how to create and launch Deployment Manager templates, add subnets to existing VPCs, use gcloud to expand subnets, and reserve new static IP addresses. This course is one of a collection of courses that prepares learners for the Google Cloud Associate Cloud Engineer certification.
