Overview

Google Cloud Marketplace provides a way to launch common software packages and stacks on Compute Engine with just a few clicks. Many common web frameworks, databases, CMSs, and CRMs are supported. This is one of the fastest ways to get up and running on the Google Cloud.

In this hands-on lab you’ll learn how to launch and configure a Marketplace service on the Google Cloud.

What you’ll do

  • Launch a common web stack with Marketplace
  • Verify your deployment
