Hosting a Web App on Google Cloud Using Compute Engine
There are many ways to deploy web sites within Google Cloud with each solution offering different features, capabilities, and levels of control. Compute Engine offers a deep level of control over the infrastructure used to run a web site, but also requires a little more operational management compared to solutions like Google Kubernetes Engines (GKE), App Engine, or others. With Compute Engine, you have fine-grained control of aspects of the infrastructure, including the virtual machines, load balancers, and more. In this lab you will deploy a sample application, the "Fancy Store" ecommerce website, to show how a website can be deployed and scaled easily with Compute Engine.
What you'll learn
- How to create Compute Engine instances
- How to create instance templates from source instances
- How to create managed instance groups
- How to create and test managed instance group health checks
- How to create HTTP(S) Load Balancers
- How to create load balancer health checks
- How to use a Content Delivery Network (CDN) for Caching
At the end of the lab, you will have instances inside managed instance groups to provide autohealing, load balancing, autoscaling, and rolling updates for our website.
