In this hands-on lab, we use Infrastructure as Code configurations along with GCP Deployment Manager to instantiate compute resources on the Google Cloud Platform. You are acting as a contractor for the Virtucon Corporation. The company needs to rapidly spin up a test environment on the Google Cloud Platform for a proof of concept load test. Your role is that of DevOps Engineer. The project files already exist; however, the usual deployment engineer is out sick. Your job is to deploy the resources in a test project and provide the external IP addresses to the load test engineer teams. Post deployment, you will be informed that the startup script for the VM instances needs to be updated due to security concerns. You will need to update the running deployment with an updated startup script and validate the change.
