Google Compute Engine

The GCE provider can creates image as expected by GCE - i.e. raw disk image in *.tar.gz file. It can upload created images to Google Storage Engine (to URI provided in manifest by gcs_destination) and can register image to be used by Google Compute Engine to project provided in manifest by gce_project. Both of those functionalities are not fully tested yet.

Manifest settings


  • description: Description of the image.
  • gcs_destination: Image destination in GSE.
  • gce_project: GCE project in which to register the image.
