I am hoping to start shared hosting service on Google Compute Engine. Does the Google infrastructure have any DDOS mitigation built-in?
This article here says it does.
"Compute Engine makes use of Google’s global network and load balancing architecture and provides access to Google’s expert security team, which ensures that the infrastructure is secure and able to defend itself against things like DDOS attacks." https://www.cloudsherpas.com.au/partner-google/inside-google-cloud-platform-hosting-computing-power/
Although no official confirmation anywhere else.
What is the additional protection I need if Google already provide provide DDOS mitigation?
