Getting Started with Cloud Shell & gcloud

GSP002

Google Cloud Self-Paced Labs

Overview

Google Cloud Shell provides you with gcloud command-line access to computing resources hosted on the Google Cloud Platform. Cloud Shell is a Debian-based virtual machine with a persistent 5GB home directory, which makes it easy for you to manage your GCP projects and resources. The Cloud SDK gcloud and other utilities you need come pre-installed in Cloud Shell, which allows you to get up and running quickly.

In this hands-on lab, you will learn how to connect to computing resources hosted on the Google Cloud Platform via Cloud Shell. You will learn how to use Cloud Shell and the gcloud command.

We encourage students to type the commands themselves, to help encourage learning of the core concepts. Many labs will include a code block that contains the required commands. You can easily copy and paste the commands from the code block into the appropriate places during the lab.

  • Practice using gcloud commands.
  • Connect to storage services hosted on the Google Cloud Platform.
