Creating a Multi-Region, Cost-Optimized Solution with Compute Engine

In this lab, we will be creating a virtual machine (VM) with a web server that allows an end user to receive a test page, creating an snapshot of that current configuration of the VM, replicating this VM and its configuration in another region, and ensuring that endusers can still access the test page of the VM in the new region.
