Architecting with Google Kubernetes Engine


Course Number: GCP-124

Duration: 3 days (19.5 hours)

Format: Live, hands-on

Google Kubernetes Engine Training Overview

This Architecting with Google Kubernetes Engine training course teaches attendees how to manage and deploy containerized applications on Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE) and other services provided by Google Cloud. Students learn how to deploy solution elements, including infrastructure components such as pods, containers, deployments, and services. In addition, participants learn practical solutions for security and access management, resource management, and resource monitoring.
