GCP Quick Start

Get up and running with DuploCloud inside a Google Cloud Platform environment; harness the power of generating application infrastructures.

This quick-start tutorial shows you how to set up an end-to-end cloud deployment. You will create Google Cloud Platform infrastructure and Tenants. By the end of this tutorial, you should be able to view the deployed sample web application.

Estimated time to complete tutorial: 60-70 minutes.

GCP Tutorial Roadmap

When you complete the GCP Quick Start Tutorial, you have two options or paths, as shown in the table below.

  • Using GKE Autopilot - You create an app and service in DuploCloud using Google Kubernetes Engine-Autopilot and expose it using a load balancer within DuploCloud.

  • Using GKE Standard - You create an app, service and a node pool in DuploCloud using Google Kubernetes Engine-Standard and expose it using a load balancer within DuploCloud.

For beginners, we recommend you use GKE Autopilot. GKE Autopilot manages the infrastructure, including the nodes, node pools, and underlying infrastructure resources such as networking and storage. You do not need to manage or configure node pools, node instance types, or autoscaling policies.

GKE Standard offers more granular control over resource management, including the ability to configure node pools with specific types of instances, set scaling policies, and manage node upgrades.

For a high-level comparison of GKE Autopilot and GKE Standard and to help you choose which method best suits your needs, skills, and environments, see this Google Cloud documentation.
