On a quest: Learn GKE security and monitoring best practices

Training and certifications

Whether you’re running Kubernetes yourself, using our Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE) managed service, or using Anthos, you need visibility into your environment, and you need to know how to secure it. To help you on your way, there are two new educational resources to teach you application observability and security best practices for using Kubernetes at scale.

Fashioned as a series of self-paced labs, this learning content will guide you through the most common activities associated with monitoring and securing Kubernetes through a series of complementary hands-on exercises that we call quests.

Quest for migration and observability best practices 
For migration and observability best practices, enroll in the Cloud Kubernetes Best Practice quest, which includes the following labs:

On a quest for secure Kubernetes applications
Similarly, the Google Kubernetes Engine Security Best Practice quest provides actionable guidance on how to approach Kubernetes security, and includes the following labs:

When working with infrastructure and application environments, sophisticated observability tools like Stackdriver provide a unified method of monitoring, tracing and logging. Likewise, securing an environment represents an ongoing challenge, but Google Cloud Platform offers a number of tools that help to reduce the complexity, and ensure that deployments follow generally accepted best practices. 

Ready to begin? Get started with Kubernetes best practice and the GKE Security Best Practice quests. On completion of the quest, you’ll be presented with a Qwiklabs digital badge that you can share on social media.
