Deploying and Implementing Networking Resources
Deploying and Implementing Compute Engine Resources
The course is part of these learning paths
This course has been designed to teach you how to deploy network and compute resources on Google Cloud Platform. The content in this course will help prepare you for the Associate Cloud Engineer exam.
- To understand key networking and compute resources on Google Cloud Platform
- Be able to explain different networking and compute features commonly used on GCP
- Be able to deploy key networking and compute resources on Google Cloud Platform
- Those who are preparing for the Associate Cloud Engineer exam
- Those looking to learn more about GCP networking and compute features
To get the most from this course then you should have some exposure to GCP resources, such as VPCs and Compute Instances. However, this is not essential.
I hope you've enjoyed learning how to Deploy Networking and Compute Resources on Google Cloud Platform. Let's review what you've learned.
We kicked off the course by covering the deployment and implementation of networking resources such as VPCs and subnets. You learned how to create a VPC and how to define subnets contained within the VPC. You also learned how to create ingress and egress firewall rules for a VPC.
Later on, in the course, you learned how to create a VPN connection between a Google VPC and an external network. You also learned how to distribute network traffic to an application by using a load balancer.
As we moved through the course, you learned how to deploy and implement Compute Engine resources via the Cloud Console and via gcloud. After deploying a compute instance, you learned how to create and assign disks to an existing compute instance and how to assign an availability policy to that instance.
Down the home stretch, you learned how to create an autoscaled managed instance group, using an instance template, and how to generate and upload custom SSH keys for compute instances. Rounding out the course, you learned how to configure a VM for Stackdriver monitoring and logging, and how to install the Stackdriver Agent. You also learned how to assess compute quotas and how to request quota increases.
At this point, you should now have a full understanding of how to Deploy Networking and Compute Resources on Google Cloud Platform. To learn more about Deploying Networking and Compute Resources on the Google Cloud Platform, you can, and should, read Google's documentation. Be sure to also watch for new courses on Cloud Academy, because we're always publishing new ones.
