gcp_compute_backend_bucket - Creates a GCP BackendBucket

New in version 2.6.

Synopsis

  • Backend buckets allow you to use Google Cloud Storage buckets with HTTP(S) load balancing.
  • An HTTP(S) load balancer can direct traffic to specified URLs to a backend bucket rather than a backend service. It can send requests for static content to a Cloud Storage bucket and requests for dynamic content a virtual machine instance.
