Two-Tier containerized application on GKE secured by VM-Series

This provides the instructions and Terraform template to deploy a GKE cluster and VM-Series firewall in a GCP project. It then guides users through the process of deploying a 2-tier containerized application with an internal load balancer. Finally the lab shows how both North/South and East/West visibilty can be achieved via the VM-Series firewall located in the same GCP project as the GKE cluster.
