About Lab Challenges

Lab challenges are hands-on labs with the gloves off. You jump into an auto-provisioned cloud environment and are given a goal to accomplish. No instructions, no hints. To pass, you'll have a limited time to demonstrate your problem-solving skills and get the checks that inspect the state of your lab environment.


Challenge Description

In this lab challenge, you will need to prove your knowledge of the Compute Engine service offered by Google Cloud. The objectives you will need to achieve represent essential skills that a Google Certified Associate Cloud Engineer needs to have. You'll be given a desired end state and be required to reach it using your knowledge of the Google Compute Engine service. This lab challenge simulates building a basic solution in a real-world scenario. As with any real-world scenario, this lab will not guide you through the steps needed to complete it.

What will be assessed

  • Google Cloud Compute Engine Instances
  • Google Cloud Compute Engine Disks

Intended audience

  • Google Cloud practioners
  • Candidates for the Google Associate Cloud Engineer exam
