Architecting Hybrid Cloud Infrastructure with Anthos


Course Number: GCP-118

Duration: 2 days (13 hours)

Format: Live, hands-on

Architecting Google Cloud Training Overview

This Architecting Hybrid Cloud Infrastructure with Anthos training course teaches students how to manage their applications using Kubernetes whether the application is deployed on-premises or on Google Cloud. Attendees learn how to leverage Kubernetes Engine (GKE), GKE Connect, Istio service mesh, and Anthos Config Management.

Location and Pricing

This course is taught as a private, live online class for teams of 3 or more. All our courses are hands-on, instructor-led, and tailored to fit your group’s goals and needs. Most Accelebrate classes can be flexibly scheduled for your group, including delivery in half-day segments across a week or set of weeks. To receive a customized proposal and price quote for online corporate training, please contact us.

In addition, some Cloud courses are available as live, online classes for individuals.

Objectives

  • Deploy Istio service mesh control-plane and proxies using the Helm Kubernetes package manager or using the Istio on GKE add-on
  • Centrally observe, discover, and monitor your microservices-based applications across clusters using Istio service mesh adapters, including Prometheus, Grafana, or Kiali, or Stackdriver
  • Define and manage multi-cluster services, with ingress, using open-source Istio via shared and multi-control plane topologies
  • Connect and manage on-premises clusters, and workloads using GKE On-Prem
  • Enable consistent policy enforcement across multi-cluster environments using a configuration-as-code approach and your secure Git repository

  • Visualize and discover service attributes with service mesh
Managing Traffic Routing with Service Mesh
  • Understand the service mesh abstract model for traffic management
  • Understand service mesh service discovery and load balancing
  • Review and compare traffic management use cases and configurations
  • Understand ingress configuration using service mesh
  • Visualize traffic routing with live generated requests
  • Configure a service mesh gateway to allow access to services from outside the mesh
  • Apply virtual services and destination rules for version-specific routing
  • Route traffic based on application-layer configuration
  • Shift traffic from one service version to another, with fine-grained control, like a canary deployment
Managing Policies and Security with Service Mesh
  • Understand authentication and authorization in service mesh
  • Explain mTLS flow for service to service communication
  • Adopt mutual TLS authentication across the service mesh incrementally
  • Enable end-user authentication for the frontend service
  • Use service mesh access control policies to secure access to the frontend service
Managing Policies using Anthos Config Management
  • Understand the challenge of managing resources across multiple clusters
  • Understand how a Git repository is as a configuration source of truth
  • Explain the Anthos Config Management components, and object lifecycle
  • Install and configure Anthos Config Management, operators, tools, and related Git repository
  • Verify cluster configuration compliance and drift management
  • Update workload configuration using repo changes
Configuring Anthos GKE for Multi-Cluster Operation
  • Understand how multiple clusters work together using DNS, root CA, and service discovery
  • Explain service mesh control-plane architectures for multi-cluster
  • Configure a multi-service application using service mesh across multiple clusters with multiple control-planes
  • Configure a multi-service application using service mesh across multiple clusters with a shared control-plane
  • Configure service naming/discovery between clusters
  • Review ServiceEntries for cross-cluster service discovery
  • Migrate workload from a remote cluster to an Anthos GKE cluster
