Compute Engine instances can run the public images for Linux and Windows Server that Google provides as well as private custom images that you can create or import from your existing systems. You can also deploy Docker containers, which are automatically launched on instances running the Container-Optimized OS public image.

You can choose the machine properties of your instances, such as the number of virtual CPUs and the amount of memory, by using a set of predefined machine types or by creating your own custom machine types.

Each instance belongs to a Google Cloud Console project, and a project can have one or more instances.

  • When you create an instance in a project, you specify the zone, operating system, and machine type of that instance.
  • When you delete an instance, it is removed from the project.

Setup

To set up the OpsRamp Google integration and discover the Google service, go to Google Integration Discovery Profile,
select Instances > Perform Actions and check Manage Devices.
