Google Deployment Manager

Google Deployment Manager

Google Cloud Deployment Manager is a service provided by Google Cloud Platform (GCP) that allows you to define, deploy, and manage cloud resources using configuration files. It enables you to use Infrastructure as Code (IaC) principles to create and manage your cloud infrastructure in a consistent and repeatable manner.

Key features and concepts of Google Deployment Manager include:

  1. Infrastructure as Code (IaC): Deployment Manager lets you define your cloud resources using declarative YAML or Python templates, making it easy to version and manage your infrastructure configurations.
  2. Templates: Deployment Manager templates describe the resources you want to create, such as virtual machines, storage buckets, networks, and more.
  3. Deployment: You create deployments using templates, specifying the resources you want to provision and their configurations.
  4. Preview and Update: Before making changes, you can preview what the deployment will look like. You can also update existing deployments to apply changes.
  5. Parameterization: Templates can be parameterized, allowing you to customize configurations based on different environments or requirements.
  6. Reusable Templates: Deployment Manager supports importing and using reusable templates, promoting modular and scalable infrastructure designs.
  7. Deployment History: You can view the history of deployments and their changes, enabling better tracking and management.
  8. Rollback: If issues arise after an update, you can roll back to a previous deployment state.

Google Deployment Manager helps automate and streamline the process of provisioning and managing cloud resources on Google Cloud Platform. It offers a convenient way to define, version, and maintain your infrastructure configurations, promoting consistency, reducing manual intervention, and improving the overall efficiency of managing your cloud-based applications and services.
