Manage Networking For Your Resources

With Google Cloud Virtual Network, you can provision your Google Cloud Platform resources, connect them to each other and isolate them from one another in a Virtual Private Cloud (VPC). You can also define fine-grained networking policies with Cloud Platform, on-premise or other public cloud infrastructure. Cloud Virtual Network is a comprehensive set of Google-managed networking capabilities, including granular IP address range selection, routes, firewalls, Virtual Private Network (VPN) and Cloud Router.

Start Quickly

Cloud Virtual Network offers automatic setup of your virtual topology, with suggested prefix ranges and network policies, so that you can get off the ground with your services fast. As your services become more complex, you may need more control. You can seamlessly customize your Cloud Virtual Network’s size and connectivity rules so that it adapts to your needs.

Flexible Geographical Scope

Whether your services are scoped globally worldwide or regionally, Cloud Virtual Network can meet your needs. Cloud Virtual Network offers the flexibility to adapt your virtual network domain to the needs of your services, contained within or across several regions.

Designed for Security

Leverage stateful firewalls to secure your virtual network, and individual services. Use VPN for secure private hybrid cloud scenarios. Control who can configure connectivity and security rules with IAM policies. Additionally, Cloud Virtual Network leverages the security of Google’s data centers.

Highly Scalable

With a distributed software architecture, Cloud Virtual Network is fully virtualized and highly scalable. You can grow your services without capacity planning constraints or considerations.

Share a Private Virtual Network

With Shared VPC, also called Cross Project Networking (XPN), you share a common private network, across multiple GCP projects to operate services with its own quotas and billing.

Cloud Virtual Network Features

Managed networking functionality for your Cloud Platform resources

Virtual Network
Create a network in auto mode (subnet IP ranges auto-allocated) or custom mode (configure your own subnet IP ranges). Subnets size in custom networks can dynamically increase its size by expanding CIDR range, and can move from one availability zone to another (e.g. from A to B) within a region (e.g. us-west1), without any impact to configured VMs.
Cloud Router
Enable dynamic Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) route updates between your Compute Engine network and your non-Google network with our virtual router.
Securely connect your existing network to Compute Engine network over IPsec.
Shared VPC
Configure a Virtual Network to be shared across several projects in your organization. Connectivity routes and firewalls associated are managed centrally. Your developers have their own projects with separate billing and quota, while they simply connect to a shared private network, where they can communicate.
Segment your networks with a global distributed firewall to restrict access to instances.
Forward traffic from one instance to another instance within the same network, even across subnetworks, without requiring external IP addresses.
