Set Up and Configure a Cloud Environment in Google Cloud: Challenge Lab

1 hour 9 Credits


Google Cloud Self-Paced Labs


You must complete a series of tasks within the allocated time period. Instead of following step-by-step instructions, you'll be given a scenario and a set of tasks - you figure out how to complete it on your own! An automated scoring system (shown on this page) will provide feedback on whether you have completed your tasks correctly.

To score 100% you must complete all tasks within the time period!

When you take a Challenge Lab, you will not be taught Google Cloud concepts. To build the solution to the challenge presented, use skills learned from the labs in the quest this challenge lab is part of. You will be expected to extend your learned skills; you will be expected to change default values, but new concepts will not be introduced.

Topics tested:

  • Creating and using VPCs and subnets
  • Configuring and launching a Deployment Manager configuration
  • Creating a Kubernetes cluster
  • Configuring and launching a Kubernetes deployment and service
  • Setting up stackdriver monitoring
  • Configuring an IAM role for an account
This lab is only recommended for students who have completed the labs in the Set up and Configure a Cloud Environment in Google Cloud quest. Are you up for the challenge?


Before you click the Start Lab button

Read these instructions. Labs are timed and you cannot pause them. The timer, which starts when you click Start Lab, shows how long Google Cloud resources will be made available to you.

This Qwiklabs hands-on lab lets you do the lab activities yourself in a real cloud environment, not in a simulation or demo environment. It does so by giving you new, temporary credentials that you use to sign in and access Google Cloud for the duration of the lab.

What you need

To complete this lab, you need:

  • Access to a standard internet browser (Chrome browser recommended).
  • Time to complete the lab.

Note: If you already have your own personal Google Cloud account or project, do not use it for this lab.

Note: If you are using a Pixelbook, open an Incognito window to run this lab.
