Google Cloud Platform offers pre-defined templates that you can use to deploy common solutions with Deployment Manager. These templates are offered as part of GCP Marketplace and can be found in the Google Cloud Platform Console.
The advantage of GCP Marketplace is that it handles configuration and template creation for you and you just deploy the solution through a button in the GCP Console. This greatly simplifies creating deployments on Deployment Manager.
GCP Marketplace offers some level of customization for these solutions; however, for advanced users who need full control over your configurations or want to do a high level of customization, you might need to create your own configuration.
Using GCP Marketplace
To use GCP Marketplace:
- Go to the GCP Marketplace page in the GCP Console.
- Click the solution you want to deploy.
- Follow the instructions to deploy your solution.
