About this document
This document describes how to deploy a FortiTester-VM instance on Google Cloud Compute Engine from the custom image.
You are encouraged to deploy FortiTester-VM in this method when:
- FortiTester is required to be deployed inline across multiple networks and multiple network interfaces must be assigned to the instance.
- You do not want to use the Google marketplace launcher. For example, if your organization does not allow you to browse marketplace websites in its IT policy.
