This was some additional work cooked up; very similar to the AWS deployment, it’s a Terraform and Ansible deployment of a Bitcoin node, but instead a deployment to Google Cloud. https://github.com/bonovoxly/bitcoin-node/tree/master/terraform/gcloud Overall, not a lot different once the credentials for Google Cloud gets setup. Terraform away and a Bitcoin node is operational. I added extensive notes on configuring Google Cloud credentials. One of the cool things about Google Cloud was the built-in SSH access.
Update - 2017-11-23 - I’ve updated the bitcoin-node repository to also include Terraform instructions on deploying to Google Cloud. This was a fun one; in an attempt to keep deployment instructions super simple, I dug into ansible-pull a bit. I kind of liked it. Using ansible-pull, triggered by Terraform and an AWS User Data shell script, a Bitcoin full node can be deployed using a single terraform apply. overview The goal here was simple; deploy a full Bitcoin node, for additional network capacity.
