Architecting with Google Cloud Platform: Infrastructure

(3 days)

 

This three-day instructor-led class introduces participants to the comprehensive and flexible infrastructure and platform services provided by Google Cloud Platform. Through a combination of presentations, demos, and hands-on labs, participants explore and deploy solution elements, including infrastructure components such as networks, systems and applications services. This course also covers deploying practical solutions including securely interconnecting networks, customer-supplied encryption keys, security and access management, quotas and billing, and resource monitoring.

Objectives

This course teaches participants the following skills:

  • Consider the entire range of Google Cloud Platform technologies in their plans
  • Learn methods to develop, implement, and deploy solutions
  • Distinguish between features of similar or related products and technologies
  • Recognize a wide variety of solution domains, use cases, and applications
  • Develop essential skills for managing and administering solutions
  • Develop knowledge of solution patterns—methods, technologies, and designs that are used to implement security, scalability, high availability, and other desired qualities

Audience

This class is intended for experienced developers who are responsible for managing big data transformations including:

  • Cloud Solutions Architects, Systems Operations professionals, DevOps Engineers, IT managers
  • Individuals using Google Cloud Platform to create new solutions or to integrate existing systems, application environments, and infrastructure with the Google Cloud Platform
