Architecting with Google Kubernetes Engine (AGKE)

 

Course Overview

This course introduces participants to deploying and managing containerized applications on Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE) and other services provided by Google Cloud. Through a combination of presentations, demos, and hands-on labs, participants explore and deploy solution elements, including infrastructure components such as pods, containers, deployments, and services, as well as networks and application services. This course also covers deploying practical solutions, including security and access management, resource management, and resource monitoring.

Who should attend

This class is intended for the following participants:

  • Cloud architects, administrators, and SysOps/DevOps personnel
  • Individuals using Google Cloud Platform to create new solutions or to integrate existing systems, application environments, and infrastructure with the Google Cloud Platform.

Prerequisites

To get the most out of this course, participants should have completed Google Cloud Fundamentals: Core Infrastructure (GCF-CI) or have equivalent experience.

Participants should also have basic proficiency with command-line tools and Linux operating system environments
