Google Cloud

First, create the Google Cloud compatible image:

make image-gcloud

Upload the image with:

gsutil cp /path/to/talos/build/gcloud/talos.tar.gz gs://<gcloud bucket name>

Create a custom google cloud image with:

gcloud compute images create talos --source-uri=gs://<gcloud bucket name>/talos.tar.gz --guest-os-features=VIRTIO_SCSI_MULTIQUEUE

Create an instance in google cloud, making sure to create a user-data key in the “Metadata” section, with a value of your full talos node configuration.

Note: Further exploration is needed to see if we can use the “Startup script” section instead.
