Architecting with Google Cloud Platform: Design and Process

This two-day instructor-led class equips students to build highly reliable and efficient solutions on Google Cloud using proven design patterns. It is a continuation of the Architecting with Google Compute Engine or Architecting with Google Kubernetes Engine course and assumes hands-on experience with the technologies covered in either of those courses. Through a combination of presentations, design activities, and hands-on labs, participants learn to design Google Cloud deployments that are highly reliable and secure; and how to operate Google Cloud deployments in a highly available and cost-effective manner.

Audience:

This class is intended for the following roles and individuals:

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

Prerequisites:

To get the most out of this course, participants should have:

  • Completion of Architecting with Google Compute Engine, Architecting with Google Kubernetes Engine or equivalent experience
  • Basic proficiency with command-line tools and Linux operating system environments
  • Systems operations experience, including deploying and managing applications, either on-premises or in a public cloud environment

Course objectives:

This course teaches participants the following skills:

  • Apply a tool set of questions, techniques and design considerations
