Managing deployments

After you launch deployments from the Cloud Launcher, you can use the Deployment Manager in the console to view, modify, and monitor your deployment.

You can also use the Deployment Manager to remove software deployments that you no longer need.

Managing your deployments

Return to your solutions by revisiting the page for the solution on the Cloud Launcher page. From there, you'll see a dropdown that shows your previous deployments. For services, you can update service options directly from the Cloud Launcher solution page.

Otherwise, if your deployment is running a VM instance, you can use the Deployment Manager to manage your deployments. It displays a tree view of all the the Google Cloud Platform resources that comprise your deployment, as well as letting you to SSH directly into your VM instance or to manage the instance from the VM Instances page. From either of those pages you can connect to the individual instances to manually install additional software or modify the software packages. (You cannot deploy multiple solutions to a single instance.)

Use Google Cloud Monitoring to track the performance and availability of your cloud-powered applications. If a deployment is integrated with Google Cloud Monitoring, the instances for that solution already include monitoring agents that provide solution-specific dashboards and alerts.

Modifying and scaling your deployments

After your software package is deployed, you might need to add additional storage, create additional instances, or include additional software on your existing instances. To learn more, refer to the following Google Compute Engine topics.

Removing your software deployments

If you decide you no longer need your software deployments, you can remove them.

To remove a deployment:

  • Go to the Deployment Manager and delete the individual deployment. When you delete a deployment, it removes all of the instances of that deployment and any persistent disks that you created when you first launched the deployment.

Some software packages require you to use Cloud Storage resources which do not get deleted when you delete your deployment. You can view and delete those resources on the Cloud Storage browser in the Cloud Platform Console.
