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 Platform, using proven design patterns and the principles of Google Site Reliability Engineering (SRE). It is a continuation of the Architecting with Google Cloud Platform: Infrastructure course and assumes hands-on experience with the technologies covered in that course.
Duration: 2 Days

Course Description

This two-day instructor-led class equips students to build highly reliable and efficient solutions on Google Cloud Platform, using proven design patterns and the principles of Google Site Reliability Engineering (SRE). It is a continuation of the Architecting with Google Cloud Platform: Infrastructure course and assumes hands-on experience with the technologies covered in that course.

Through a combination of presentations, demos, and hands-on labs, participants learn to design GCP deployments that are highly reliable and secure; and how to operate GCP deployments in a highly available and cost-effective manner.

Duration

2 days

Objectives

This course teaches participants the following skills:

  • Design for high availability, scalability, and maintainability.
  • Assess tradeoffs and make sound choices among Google Cloud Platform products.
  • Integrate on-premises and cloud resources.
  • Identify ways to optimize resources and minimize cost.
  • Implement processes that minimize downtime, such as monitoring and alarming, unit and integration testing, production resilience testing, and incident post-mortem analysis.
  • Implement policies that minimize security risks, such as auditing, separation of duties and least privilege.
  • Implement technologies and processes that assure business continuity in the event of a disaster.

Delivery Method

Instructor-led, instructor-led online
