    View Code Deploy this example with Pulumi

    Starting point for building the Pulumi nginx server sample in Google Cloud Platform. This example deploys two GCP virtual machines:

    Running the App

    1. Create a new stack:

      $ pulumi stack init gcp-instance-nginx
      
    2. Configure the project:

      $ export GOOGLE_PROJECT=YOURPROJECTID; export GOOGLE_REGION=asia-east1; export GOOGLE_ZONE=asia-east1-a;
      $ export GOOGLE_CREDENTIALS=YOURGCPCREDENTIALS
      
    3. Run pulumi up to preview and deploy changes:

      $ pulumi up
      Previewing update (dev):
          Type                     Name                    Plan
      +   pulumi:pulumi:Stack      gcp-instance-nginx-dev  create
      +   ├─ gcp:compute:Address   poc                     create
      +   ├─ gcp:compute:Network   poc                     create
      +   ├─ gcp:compute:Address   poc-container-instance  create
      +   ├─ gcp:compute:Firewall  poc                     create
      +   ├─ gcp:compute:Instance  poc                     create
      +   └─ gcp:compute:Instance  poc-container-instance  create
      
      Resources:

      Do you want to perform this update? yes
      Updating (dev):
          Type                     Name                    Status
      +   pulumi:pulumi:Stack      gcp-instance-nginx-dev  created
      +   ├─ gcp:compute:Address   poc                     created
      +   ├─ gcp:compute:Network   poc                     created
      +   ├─ gcp:compute:Address   poc-container-instance  created
      +   ├─ gcp:compute:Firewall  poc                     created
      +   ├─ gcp:compute:Instance  poc                     created
      +   └─ gcp:compute:Instance  poc-container-instance  created
      
      Outputs:
          container_instance_external_ip: "34.66.98.237"
          container_instance_name       : "poc-container-instance-11dddc1"
          instance_external_ip          : "35.192.222.243"
          instance_name                 : "poc-4897b20"
      
      Resources:
          + 7 created
      
      Duration: 59s
      
    4. Curl the HTTP server:

      $ curl $(pulumi stack output instance_external_ip)

    6. Destroy the stack:

      $ pulumi stack rm
      This will permanently remove the 'gcp-instance-nginx' stack!
      Please confirm that this is what you'd like to do by typing ("gcp-instance-nginx"): gcp-instance-nginx
      Stack 'gcp-instance-nginx' has been removed!
