Google Cloud gives you compute and hosting options, and you can work in a serverless environment, use a managed application platform, leverage container technology, or build your own cloud-based infrastructure for the most control and flexibility. In this course, you'll begin by learning about Virtual Machine instances and the instance life cycle, as well as how to create different instances such as preemptible and Windows Server instances. Next, you'll examine how to provision sole-tenant nodes, generate SSH keys, connect to Linux and Windows VM instances using Google Cloud Console, and use the gcloud command-line tool with SSH keys. Finally, you'll learn how to create a managed instance group and an instance template. This course is one of a collection of courses that prepares learners for the Google Cloud Associate Cloud Engineer certification.
