Compute Engine is a customizable compute service that enables users to create and run virtual machines on demand on Google's infrastructure.
- Compute Engine API best practices - recommended best practices for using the Compute Engine API and mitigating the effects of API rate limits.
- Designing resilient systems - detailed guidance on how to architect your Compute Engine applications to recover from single-VM failures or reboots, and zonal or regional failures.
- How to increase availability by overprovisioning - add redundant resources to keep your application up and running in the face of capacity losses from zonal or regional disruptions.
- Using load balancing for highly available applications - how to use Cloud Load Balancing with Compute Engine to provide high availability, even during a zonal outage.
- Best practices for Compute Engine regions selection - how to choose which Google Cloud regions to use for your Compute Engine resources to optimize latency for your applications while accounting for price/performance tradeoffs.
- Best practices for persistent disk snapshots - create snapshots more quickly and with greater reliability.
- Configure disks to meet performance requirements - factors that affect the performance of block storage volumes attached to VM instances.
