Developers & Practitioners
Picture this: 10 whiteboard sketch videos that bring Google Cloud to life
If you’re looking for a visual way to learn Google Cloud products, we’ve got you covered. The Google Cloud Tech YouTube channel has a series of whiteboard (remember those?) drawing board videos that explain cloud tools for technical practitioners in about 5 minutes each.
1. What is Cloud Storage?
Cloud Storage is a global, secure and scalable object store for immutable data such as images, text, videos or any other file formats. In this video, learn how Cloud Storage can be used for building a data lake in the cloud and how you can utilize Cloud Storage for your developer projects.
2. What is Dataflow?
Data flow is a serverless, fast and cost-effective service that supports streaming and batch processing. In this video, learn how you can use it for your data processing needs.
3. What is Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE)?
Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE) is a managed environment for deploying, scaling, and managing containerized applications in a secure Google infrastructure. In this learn how to use it to scale, manage and securely deploy your applications.
4. What is Compute Engine?
Compute Engine is a secure and customizable compute service that lets you create and run virtual machines on Google’s infrastructure. In this video, learn the different use cases, and how you can use it for your projects while managing costs.
5. What is Cloud SQL?
Cloud SQL is a fully managed relational database for MySQL, PostgreSQL, and SQL Server. In this video, learn how it reduces maintenance costs and automates database provisioning, storage capacity management and much more.
6. What is BigQuery?
BigQuery is Google Cloud’s enterprise data warehouse designed to help ingest, store, analyze and visualize big data with ease. In this video, learn how BigQuery can aid in your data-driven developer projects.
7. What is Cloud CDN?
Cloud CDN (Content Delivery Network) is a tool that uses Google's globally distributed edge points of presence to cache external HTTP(S) load balanced content close to your users. In this video, learn how you can use this tool to provide better delivery for your content, while reducing serving costs!
8. What is Google Cloud Operations?
Formerly known as Stackdriver, Google Cloud Operations Suite is a platform where you can monitor, troubleshoot, and improve application performance on your Google Cloud environment. In this video, learn how you can use it to gain greater observability over your applications.
9. What is Cloud Load Balancing?
Cloud Load Balancing is a fully distributed, software-defined managed service, that balances user traffic to multiple backends to avoid congestion and ensure low latency. In this video, watch a demo of the Cloud Load Balancer and learn how you can utilize it to its fullest extent.
10. What is High Performance Computing?
High Performance Computing (HPC) can be thought about as an aggregation of computing power to solve complex problems and analyze extensive datasets. In this video, learn how you can build a high computing environment on Google Cloud.
