GCP Networking Services

Connect Cloud Resources with Cloud Networking Services.

Sl Product Description Usage Reference
1 VPC Network Google Cloud Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) provides networking functionality to Compute Engine virtual machine (VM) instances, Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE) containers, and the App Engine flexible environment. VPC provides networking for your cloud-based services that is global, scalable, and flexible. Connecting Cloud Resources VPC Reference
2 Cloud Load Balancer Cloud Load Balancing allows you to put your resources behind a single IP address that is externally accessible or internal to your Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) network.A load balancer distributes user traffic across multiple instances of your applications. By spreading the load, load balancing reduces the risk that your applications experience performance issues. Distribute User Traffic to Backends LB Reference
3 Cloud DNS DNS is a hierarchical distributed database that lets you store IP addresses and other data, and look them up by name. Cloud DNS lets you publish your zones and records in DNS without the burden of managing your own DNS servers and software. Name Resolution Workloads DNS Reference
4 Cloud CDN Cloud CDN (Content Delivery Network) uses Google's globally distributed edge points of presence to cache external HTTP(S) load balanced content close to your users. Caching content at the edges of Google's network provides faster delivery of content to your users while reducing serving costs.Cloud CDN works with external HTTP(S) Load Balancing to deliver content to your users. Low latency Content Delivery Cloud CDN Reference
5 Cloud NAT Cloud NAT provides fully managed, software-defined network address translation support for Google Cloud.Cloud NAT (network address translation) lets certain resources without external IP addresses create outbound connections to the internet. Accessing Internet with Private IP's NAT Reference
6 Traffic Director Traffic Director is Google Cloud's fully managed application networking platform and service mesh. With Traffic Director, you can deploy global load balancing across clusters and virtual machine (VM) instances in multiple regions, offload health checking from service proxies, and configure sophisticated traffic control policies.Traffic Director is a managed control plane for application networking. Traffic Director lets you deliver global, highly available services with advanced application networking capabilities such as traffic management and observability. Directing Traffic TD Reference
7 Service Directory Service Directory is a single place to publish, discover, and connect to services in a consistent and reliable way, regardless of their environment. Service Directory supports services in Google Cloud, multi-cloud, and on-premises environments and can scale up to thousands of services and endpoints for a single project. SD Reference
8 Cloud Domains Register new domains, transfer existing domains, and manage domains within Google Cloud. Cloud Domains offers easy domain renewal through Cloud Billing, bulk management through the API, and permission management through IAM. Cloud Domains supports more than 300 domain endings with free privacy protection, automatic domain verification, and one-click DNSSEC enablement. Purchasing and Managing Domains Domains Reference
9 Cloud VPN Cloud VPN securely extends your on-prem network to Google's network through an IPsec VPN tunnel. Traffic is encrypted and travels between the two networks over the public internet. Cloud VPN is useful for low-volume data connections. Connecting On-Prem to Cloud with Low Speed Bandwidth Links VPN Reference
10 Cloud Interconnect Cloud Interconnect extends your on-premises network to Google's network through a highly available, low latency connection. You can use Dedicated Interconnect to connect directly to Google or use Partner Interconnect to connect to Google through a supported service provider. Connecting On-Prem to Cloud with High Speed Bandwidth Links Interconnect Reference
11 Cloud Router Dynamically exchange routes between your Google Cloud Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) network and your on-premises networks using Border Gateway Protocol (BGP). Automatic Configuration of Routes from On-Prem to Cloud Router Reference
12 Network Connectivity Center Network Connectivity Center is a network connectivity product that employs a hub-and-spoke architecture for management of hybrid connectivity. With this architecture, each connectivity resource is represented as a spoke. Each spoke is attached to a central management resource known as a hub. Connecting On-Prem to Cloud with High Speed Bandwidth Links NCC Reference
13 Network Service Tiers Network Service Tiers lets you optimize connectivity between systems on the internet and your Google Cloud instances. Premium Tier delivers traffic on Google's premium backbone, while Standard Tier uses regular ISP networks. Addressing N/w Latency N/W Service Tier Reference
14 Cloud Armour Google Cloud Armor helps protect your infrastructure and applications from Layer 3/Layer 4 network or protocol-based volumetric distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks, volumetric Layer 7 attacks, and other targeted application attacks. It leverages Google's global network and distributed infrastructure to detect and absorb attacks and filter traffic through user-configurable security policies at the edge of Google's network, far upstream of your workloads. Protecting Cloud Apps from External Attacks Armour Reference
15 Cloud IDS Cloud IDS (Cloud Intrusion Detection System) detects malware, spyware, command-and-control attacks, and other network-based threats. Its security efficacy is industry leading, built with Palo Alto Networks technologies. Protecting Cloud Apps from malware, spyware IDS Reference
16 Network Intelligence Center Network Intelligence Center provides a single console for managing Google Cloud network visibility, monitoring, and troubleshooting. Network Monitoring NIC Reference
