Key features

Key features

VPC network

VPC can automatically set up your virtual topology, configuring prefix ranges for your subnets and network policies, or you can configure your own. You can also expand CIDR ranges without downtime.

VPC flow logs

Flow logs capture information about the IP traffic going to and from network interfaces on Compute Engine. VPC flow logs help with network monitoring, forensics, real-time security analysis, and expense optimization. Google Cloud flow logs are updated every five seconds, providing immediate visibility.

Bring your own IPs

Bring your own IP addresses to Google’s network across all regions to minimize downtime during migration and reduce your networking infrastructure cost. After you bring your own IPs, Google Cloud will advertise them globally to all peers. Your prefixes can be broken into blocks as small as 16 addresses (/28), creating more flexibility with your resources.

VPC peering Configure private communication across the same or different organizations without bandwidth bottlenecks or single points of failure.
Firewall Segment your networks with a global distributed firewall to restrict access to instances. Firewall Rules Logging lets you audit, verify, and analyze the effects of your firewall rules.
Routes Forward traffic from one instance to another instance within the same network, even across subnets, without requiring external IP addresses.
Shared VPC Configure a VPC 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.
Packet mirroring Troubleshoot your existing VPCs by collecting and inspecting network traffic at scale, providing intrusion detection, application performance monitoring, and compliance controls.
VPN Securely connect your existing network to VPC network over IPsec.
Simple and complex architectures Host globally distributed multi-tier applications by creating a VPC with subnets. Connect Google Cloud or externally hosted databases to Google’s machine learning services by creating a VPC with subnets and VPN access.
Disaster recovery With application replication, create backup Google Cloud compute capacity, then revert back once the incident is over.
Private access Get private access to Google services, such as storage, big data, analytics, or machine learning, without having to give your service a public IP address. Configure your application’s front end to receive internet requests and shield your backend services from public endpoints, all while being able to access Google Cloud services.

Pricing

Pricing

Pricing for VPC is based on egress traffic, traffic leaving a Google Cloud resource, such as a VM.
