Deploying Free Tier (Always Free) VM in Google Cloud Platform – Snapshots, VPC Firewall and more



In this video, Brian explains Google Cloud Platform’s Always Free VM and demonstrates deployment of a CentOS 7 VM.

Brian also covers VPC firewall rules and how snapshots work.

Other Notes:
– While discussing Firewall rules, I mistakenly said RDP instead of SSH since there was dialog on the screen talking about RDP.
– When shutting down VMs and restarting, VMs may receive a new external IP address upon restart, under VPC Network – External Addresses, you can specify to keep an IP as static.

The follow-up video about deploying OpenLDAP and LDAPS is available here:

  1. Thanks for the video, Brian!
    I have a question: how would one know that one has exceeded Free Tier? Is there any auditing method there?

  2. When I select more than 30GB (for ex. 60) do I fully leave the free tier or do I only have to pay for the extra space? This is something Im quite not sure about

  3. Hey man, thank you for your content, it is really good. I'm having problems linking my Google Cloud instance to my domain on Godaddy, I did everything you mentioned in another video but it is just not working, "This site can’t be reached" Do you have an idea if something changed in 2019?

  4. Thanks so much for this video! I spent some time trying to navigate through the google documentation to figure this out and you made it super clear in under 13 mins!
