Anthos 101 learning series: All the videos in one place
Staff Developer Advocate, Google Cloud
Do you need to develop, run and secure applications across your hybrid and multicloud environments? Look no further than Anthos, our managed application platform that extends Google Cloud services and engineering practices to your environments so you can modernize apps faster and establish operational consistency across them.
To help you get started, we created the Anthos 101 video learning series. It’s a great starting point for understanding the basics of Anthos—and you can watch the whole series in less than an hour.
Let’s dive in.
1. What is Anthos?
Discover what Anthos is and how it helps enterprises manage their applications. You’ll learn about the different tools Anthos offers—like the ability to create environs and platform administrators—to help you modernize and manage your application infrastructure.
2. How to get started with Anthos on Google Cloud
Ready to get started with Anthos? In this lesson, you’ll create your own Anthos deployment. You’ll learn about the different tools on the Anthos dashboard—like the Service Mesh card and Cluster Status cards—plus how to deploy and alter Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE) clusters and Anthos Service mesh via Google Compute Engine.
3. How to modernize and run Windows apps in Anthos
Running a Windows application that’s in need of modernization? In this lesson, you’ll discover how you can create and deploy a Windows-based application on Anthos, allowing you to modernize existing workloads and manage your application seamlessly. You’ll even learn to do this without requiring access to source code, re-writing, or re-architecting your existing application.
4. How to build modern CI/CD with Anthos
Continuous integration? Continuous delivery? These are two things that developers need to think about with container adoption for hybrid or multicloud environments. Learn how Anthos helps you increase your development velocity without compromising the security of your application.
5. How to adopt a multi-cluster strategy for your applications in Anthos
There are a number of use cases that might require a multi-cluster strategy, such as maintaining multiple clusters on the cloud and in your own data center. In this lesson, learn the different tools that Anthos offers—such as GKE, Anthos Config Management, and Anthos Service Mesh—to help deploy and manage multiple clusters.
6. How to improve observability using golden signals in Anthos
Observability is important in application development, but without the right tools monitoring your services can be time consuming. In this episode, learn more how Anthos Service Mesh can help you monitor and manage the four Golden Signals—latency, traffic, errors, and saturation—for your application.
7. How to modernize legacy Java apps with Anthos
Looking to modernize legacy Java applications? In this lesson, you’ll learn the three categories of Java applications and their unique paths for modernization via Anthos. This can help you reduce your dependency on high-cost proprietary software, decrease operational overhead, and increase software delivery speed.
8. How to apply a zero trust model for your deployments using Anthos
It’s time to rethink traditional security models when it comes to network observability and consistency for IAM permissions. In this lesson, learn how you can adopt a zero trust posture with Anthos. This allows you to better secure your network, detect underlying network compromises, and ensure workloads are secure before deployment.
9. How to go beyond business continuity with Anthos
Sometimes a business continuity plan that only covers traditional backup and disaster recovery methods simply isn’t enough. In this lesson, learn how Anthos helps resolve issues like data redundancy, scaling without code changes, implementing measurable SLOs, and much more. You’ll also discover how Anthos can help you manage your application beyond the confines of traditional backup and disaster recovery approaches.
10. How to simplify identity with Anthos
Managing identities across hybrid and multicloud environments can be troublesome and hard to keep track of. Luckily, Anthos is capable of simplifying identity management for users and workloads. In this lesson, you’ll learn how Anthos can extend and enable existing capabilities, while allowing you to manage IAM permissions across multiple Anthos and GKE environments.
11. How to optimize costs with Anthos
Learn how you can optimize costs with Anthos through greater observability, improving existing operations, and many other practices.
