5.0 out of 5 stars Book Review: Google Compute Engine (JackkTutorials Review), 15 Dec. 2013
This review is from: Instant Google Compute Engine (Paperback)
Another book from the 'Instant' book collection. This book focuses on the Google Compute Engine (GCE) which is something I had never heard of and I'm assuming that many of you also have not heard of it before.

Google Compute Engine is a service offered by the massive Google company which hosts a virtual server within their Google datacenter which you can access through the cloud.

This book is a great read for those who want to learn what GCE is, where you can get it and what you can do with it. The book goes through steps on how to set up your own virtual linux box within their massive data center.

The book as you expect provides you with all the resources you need especially if you are a linux user anyway and you need to get the links for apt-get install and wget which you can simply copy and paste from the books pages.

The book is very broken down in to chapters so you can quickly navigate to each section of the book using the contents page. Each chapter has it's own high quality instructions and screen shots for whatever the book happens to be talking about. Also the book is in chronological order so it assumes you have some or no idea of what GCE is and then proceeds to show you how to set it up so you can access it yourself.

In summary, if you are looking for a book on the Google Compute Engine this is the one you defiantly should spend your pennies on. I guarantee that you will be able to follow along and set up your own virtual box on the google infrastructure and have it working to your exceptions through this book. I give it a wonderful 5/5 and would recommend it too anyone in a heart beat.
