Hybrid and multi-cloud: Anthos and Google Kubernetes Engine

What does it mean to make your IT infrastructure hybrid and multi-cloud? Going hybrid or multi-cloud allows you to connect your on-prem infrastructure with the cloud's scalability and innovation.

In this path, you'll learn how to manage containers with Google Kubernetes Engine and Anthos, Google Cloud's open platform that lets you run your applications, unmodified, on existing on-prem hardware investments or in the public cloud.

Hybrid and Multi-cloud Cloud Architect learning path

This learning path focuses on containers, Anthos, and Kubernetes. Learn the skills needed to modernize existing applications running on virtual machines while deploying cloud-native apps on containers in an increasingly hybrid and multi-cloud world.
