Networking in the Google Cloud Platform

Categories: Google, Guaranteed To Run™

Google

Duration: 2 Days

This 2-day instructor-led course gives participants a broad study of networking options on Google Cloud Platform. Through presentations, demonstrations, and hands-on labs, participants explore and deploy GCP networking technologies, such as Google Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) networks, subnets, firewalls; interconnection among networks; load balancing; Cloud DNS; Cloud CDN; Cloud NAT. The course will also cover common network design patterns and automated deployment using Deployment Manager or Terraform.

This course teaches participants the following skills:

  • Configure Google VPC networks, subnets, and routers
  • Control administrative access to VPC objects
  • Control network access to endpoints in VPCs
  • Interconnect networks among GCP projects
  • Interconnect networks among GCP VPC networks and on-premises or other-cloud networks
  • Choose among GCP load balancer and proxy options and configure them
  • Use Cloud CDN to reduce latency and save money
  • Optimize network spend using Network Tiers
  • Configure Cloud NAT or Private Google Access to provide instances without public IP addresses access to other services
  • Deploy networks declaratively using Cloud Deployment Manager or Terraform
  • Design networks to meet common customer requirements
  • Configure monitoring and logging to troubleshoot networks problems
