Google Kubernetes Engine Clusters
Configuring and Managing Firewall Rules
The course is part of these learning paths
This course explores how to implement virtual private clouds on the Google Cloud Platform. It starts off with an overview, where you'll be introduced to the key concepts and components that make up a virtual private cloud.
After covering basic VPC concepts and components, we'll dive into peering VPCs, shared VPCs, and VPC flow logs, including a hands-on demonstration of how to configure flow logs. We’ll also look at routing and network address translation, before moving on to Google Kubernetes Engine clusters. We’ll cover VPC-native clusters and alias IPs, as well as clustering with shared VPCs.
You’ll learn how to add authorized networks for GKE cluster master access and we finish off by looking at firewall rules. We’ll cover network tags, service accounts, and the importance of priority. You’ll also learn about ingress rules, egress rules, and firewall logs.

This course is intended for those who wish to learn how to implement virtual private clouds on the Google Cloud Platform.
We’re going to start things off with a VPC overview, where you'll be introduced to key concepts and components that make up a virtual private cloud.
After covering basic VPC concepts and components, we'll dive into peering VPCs and shared VPCs.
We’ll then dive into VPC flow logs. You’ll even get to see a hands-on demonstration of how to configure flow logs.
As we move through the course, we’ll get into routing and network address translation.
Later on, you’ll learn about Google Kubernetes Engine clusters. We’ll cover VPC-native clusters and alias IPs. We’ll also dive into clustering with Shared VPC and take a look at cluster network policies.
After covering cluster network policies, we’ll look at adding authorized networks for GKE cluster master access.
Coming down the home stretch, we'll take a look at firewall rules. You’ll learn about network tags, service accounts, and the importance of priority. You’ll also learn about ingress rules, egress rules, and firewall logs.
After finishing this course, you'll come away with a foundational understanding of the concepts you need to have a handle on when implementing a GCP virtual private cloud.
We’d love to get your feedback on this course, so please give it a rating when you’re finished.
