Has anyone deployed a Server Edition on Google Cloud?

Not the Containerised but a 'traditional' SE self deployed

Interested in your experiences.

We have several hosted elsewhere but looking at moving to GCP


RE: Google Cloud

our company has some on AWS which is basically the same and all customers are connected via VPN to their SE

Works well.

RE: Google Cloud

Did you deploy via an OVA image?

Cannot get an OVA to deploy on GCP at all

RE: Google Cloud

We started in google and moved to AWS. Google was easy enough though.


RE: Google Cloud

How did you deploy the OVA?

RE: Google Cloud

I dont believe we used the OVA. We migrated the .iso file to the platform.


RE: Google Cloud

Ah, OK thanks downloading an ISO now.

Not sure what GCP is built on but I know that in virtualised environment deployment is only supported by OVA or VHDX and the ISO was just for upgrading.

I could be wring though.

However if it works?

RE: Google Cloud

Is it for powered by? or CPE?


RE: Google Cloud


We currently use KCOM in the UK but looking at alternatives.
We use GCP for 3CX hosting, be nice to keep it all the same but cannot get an IPO deployed on GCP, so may have to use AWS.

The only difference is we deploy a very small VM as a firewall in KCOM and this creates VPNs to sites.

The VPN per minute charging on GCP and AWS, if there were, for example 5 sites, would make it cost prohibitive I think.

VPNs work out at about $40 per month on both I think?
