- Ready to create your first virtual machine instance?…Let's get right to it.…We're gonna start on the Google Console page…for our project, and then navigate to Compute,…Compute Engine, VM Instances.…You can see that the first time you do that,…there's a small message up there that says…we're Enabling Compute Engine and related APIs.…And once that's done, you'll get a bit of a dashboard…as well as a little Quickstart, which we'll close off there.…
No need to see that and deal with that.…And there's our first big blue button for this section,…Create an instance, so let me click that.…And that opens the interface up…where we first want to give an instance a name.…Once more, the naming convention is particular,…but this time it's a little different.…For instances, you can only do lowercase letters,…numbers, and hyphens, no underscores.…So I'm gonna call this one lynda-instance-1.…
Compute Engine gives you total control over your instances,…even the ability to employ startup…scripts for commonly executed tasks.…The next section, Metadata, allows you to specify…
Learn the basics of hosting a mobile app with App Engine and see how to analyze massive datasets in seconds with BigQuery. Then explore the benefits of Cloud Storage, including unlimited file storage and fast data retrieval, and learn how to establish a cloud-based private network with Compute Engine. Finally, the course explores how to set up and manage cloud-based databases with Cloud Datastore and Cloud SQL.
