Google Cloud Engine is the Infrastructure as a Service component of the Google Cloud Platform. It is built on the same infrastructure that runs Google's search engine, Gmail, and even YouTube. In this course, you'll start by learning how to setting up Virtual Machine Manager. You'll explore how to manage a VM instance by going through its life cycle, including starting, stopping, suspending, and resuming an instance. You'll then learn how to update an instance by using gcloud or API, as well as how to connect to it by using Secure Shell and Remote Desktop Protocol. You'll also examine how to create a VM with attached GPUs. Next, you'll learn to setup and use OS inventory management, create and view snapshots and images, and use instance groups and templates. Finally, you'll explore how to query the metadata server to retrieve information, and how to access and request quota increases. This course is one of a collection of courses that prepares learners for the Google Cloud Associate Cloud Engineer certification.
