re: AWS and GCP Networking Differences VIEW POST


Thank you for this. I'm going through the same discovery now.

My understanding is that GCP subnets must belong to a region, and they can span zones. I've had some concerns about using this feature as I want to keep subnets close and tight.


Oh. I didn't know they could span zones. I thought they had to be in a single zone.

Just looked at the docs again and you're right

Because subnets are regional resources, instances can have their network interfaces associated with any subnet in the same region that contains their zones.

Now I'm curious in what scenarios people would do this.
