Use case
Using Cloud CDN with HTTP(S) load balancing

Cloud CDN works with HTTP(S) load balancing to deliver content to your users. The HTTP(S) load balancer provides the frontend IP addresses and ports that receive requests and the back ends that respond to the requests. You can also configure Cloud CDN for use with load balancing and GKE.
