How to set up Confluence Data Center on GCP


We are upgrading our Confluence to the Confluence Data Center license and was wondering if someone could help us on how to run it on GCP.

I have tried out running Confluence DC on AWS and have it up and running with minimum effort. Amazon and Atlassian have detailed documentation on this and I can see a lot of discussions on this in the community which really helped in troubleshooting some minor issues. This is the documentation I followed Confluence on AWS

Is there a similar kind of documentation I can follow for setting up Confluence DC on GCP? Or do we just have to manually set all the cluster/ synchrony nodes, database instance, load balancer etc?

Several requirements must be configured before Confluence can be installed on the Google Cloud Platform.

Create an Ubuntu 18 LTS virtual machine with a firewall rule for both Ingres and Egress. Create a service account user and install font requirements to run Confluence as a service. Create a database (PostgreSQL or MySQL) with Google Cloud SQL, install Confluence and activate the licence.
The instructions for installing Confluence Datacenter on Compute Engine are explained in the following article.

Otherwise, Cloudron may be used to install Confluence Datacenter. Then, Confluence Datacenter is installed by Cloudron in a matter of seconds. For non-techies, this is the most simple solution.

Right now, it is manual for GCP.

Also note, for node discovery, you will need to use tcp/ip, rather than multicast (as i don't believe multicast works in GCP). See for documentation on how to configure tcp/ip node discovery.
