Concept of Google Cloud
a. What are zones, and a region ?
Suppose there is a region Asia – North-East, and we have 10 sites with different resources.
Each site is known as a zone with defined set of resources.
And the complete set of sites/zones come under a single region i.e. Asia-north-east-1.
Collection of Zones --> Region --> That makes up a data center
b. What is Global Scope in Google Cloud.
Global Scope contains all different regions across the globe where each region is a set of resources available in that area.
Global Scope --> Different Regions --> Each region has zones
