Data Management on Google Cloud Platform
Overview of the course
Data-oriented services on Google Cloud Platform
Data Management is critical for all server infrastructures - whether cloud-based or earth-bound. Even small applications need to process, manage, and digest large quantities of data, either as files, objects, or items in a database. So it's not surprising that all the major cloud platforms provide multiple data management solutions.
This course, designed and produced by our expert Linux System Administrator David Clinton, offers a great overview of the data solutions available from Google. You will see Google's two managed DBMS, its Object Storage service, and BigQuery - the Big Data service into which Google poured its years of experience performing analytics and queries on massive datasets.
