How to set up a Google Cloud server
Whether you're a blogger, business owner, or just a tech geek who wants to play around with virtual machines and Google resources, this tutorial will walk you through setting up Google Cloud Server. in about 15 minutes.
What is Google Cloud? Launched in 2008, Google Cloud is a complete cloud infrastructure that runs on the same powerful global infrastructure that Google uses for its core products, including Google Search and YouTube. Google Cloud provides secure storage, powerful computing, and integrated data analytics products that can meet the needs of anyone from individuals to large enterprises.
Some of the notable features of Google Cloud include web hosting, global application deployment, fully managed cloud storage, machine learning, shared gaming experiences, and… automation of repetitive tasks, to give just a few examples. In the Google cloud, anyone can easily turn a virtual machine in seconds and use it as a hassle-free alternative to a physical server. Since all the equipment is efficient, it is possible to add more processing power or storage, so you only pay for what you use. Even better, all new Google Cloud users receive a $300 credit that can be used toward any Google Cloud service. To be eligible for cash credit, you must be a new Google Cloud customer and set up a billing account by providing your credit card information, which is required to verify that you are not a bot. Configure a Google Cloud server from scratch
Google has made it easy to set up a new Google Cloud server from scratch, and the whole process shouldn't take you more than 15 minutes from start to finish.
Step 1: Sign in to Google Cloud
First, you'll use your Gmail account to sign in to Google Cloud. Go to the Google Cloud website and click the blue "Get started for free" button in the upper right corner of the page.
If you haven't provided Google with your credit card details before, you'll be prompted to do so now. Don't worry: Google won't start paying you until you spend $300, which you can do within a year. Also, you have to manually upgrade to a paid account for Google to start your recharge. You'll know you've received $300 in credit if you see this pop-up window when you sign up:
Just click "get it" and go to the next step of our tutorial. To create a new Google Cloud server, select "Computer Engine" from the left navigation menu and click "VM Type". The purpose of Compute Engine is to allow users to create and use virtual machines on Google resources. Wait a minute or two for the Competition Engine to finish preparing. You'll be able to tell it's ready because the blue "Generate" button will be clickable.
When this happens, click on it and configure your server settings. You have several decisions to make:
Name: Give your server a memorable name that starts with a lowercase letter and is followed by up to 62 lowercase letters, numbers, or symbols. Keep in mind that the name is permanent, so you won't be able to change it later. Region: Region is the geographical area where you can manage your resources. If you are creating a Google Cloud server for educational purposes, choose the region closest to you. If you are creating a Google Cloud server to, for example, host a website, choose the region closest to your customers.
Region: A region is a remote location within a region that determines where your data is stored. You don't have to worry about it.
Machine configuration: Google Cloud offers virtual machines for common workloads, as well as advanced storage machine models for storage workloads. You can choose the number of cores and GB of memory you want and change this setting later.
Startup Disk: This is where you choose the operating system for your Google Cloud servers. Debian 9 Stretch is selected by default, but you can change it to Debian 10 Buster, CentOS, Ubuntu, Red Hat Enterprise Linux, SUSE Linux Enterprise, etc. Google lets you upload your own custom images. Firewall: If you want to connect to the web from your Google Cloud server, make sure to allow both HTTP and HTTPS traffic.
Once you've configured everything to your liking, click the blue "Create" button at the bottom of the page. Step 3: Use your Google Cloud server
Once your server is created, you can easily connect to it from the Google Cloud management console by selecting the "SSH" option under the connection. A new browser window will open with a fully functional node inside. If you want to connect to the server from your Linux distribution, follow this guide from Google, which explains how to provide a public SSH key to the instance and establish a secure connection.
