Today's most advanced computing technology exists in large buildings containing vast arrays of low-cost servers. Enormous computing resources are housed in well-fortified, secure areas, maintained by teams of highly trained technicians. Compute Engine offers many advantages: leading-edge hardware, upgraded regularly and automatically; virtually unlimited capacity to grow or shrink a business on demand; a flexible charging model; an army of experts maintaining computing and networking resources; and the ability to host your resources in a global network engineered for security and performance. This book provides a guided tour of Google Compute Engine, with a focus on solving practical problems. At a high level, Google Compute Engine is about giving you access to the world's most advanced network of data centers--the computing resources that power Google itself. Practically speaking, this means providing APIs, command-line tools and web user interfaces to use Google's computing and networking resources.
