Google Cloud Self-Paced Labs


In this lab, you will learn how to deploy a new Ruby on Rails application, or Rails app for short, to Google App Engine Flexible environment. You will learn how to use Cloud Shell and the Cloud SDK to get started without downloading anything.

Google App Engine Flexible environment applications are easy to create, easy to maintain, and easy to scale as your traffic and data storage changes. With App Engine, there are no servers to maintain. You simply upload your application and it's ready to go.

App Engine applications automatically scale based on incoming traffic. Load balancing, microservices, authorization, SQL and NoSQL databases, traffic splitting, logging, search, versioning, roll out and roll backs, and security scanning are all supported natively and are highly customizable.
