Configuring Kubernetes Clusters
Configuring Firewall Rules
The course is part of these learning paths
This course guides you through the key steps to configure a Google Cloud Platform virtual private cloud (VPC), which allows you to connect your GCP services with one another securely.
After a brief introduction, the course begins with how to set up and configure VPCs, including VPC peering and shared VPC. You'll learn how to configure routes, set up cloud NAT (network address translation), and configure VPC-native clusters in Kubernetes, before rounding off the course by looking at VPC firewalls. The topics in this course are accompanied by demonstrations on the platform in order to show you how these concepts apply to real-world scenarios.

- Configure Google Cloud Platform VPC resources
- Configure VPC peering and API access
- Create shared VPCs
- Configure internal static and dynamic routing, as well as NAT
- Configure and maintain Google Kubernetes Engine clusters
- Configure and maintain VPC firewalls
This course is intended for:
- Individuals who want to learn more about Google Cloud networking, who may also have a background in cloud networking with other public cloud providers
- Individuals who simply want to widen their knowledge of cloud technology in general
To get the most from this course, you should already have experience in public cloud and networking as well as an understanding of GCP architecture.
Now for the next part, we're gonna go look at a GKE cluster that is not VPC native. So on the screen here, you could see this is another cluster, it's been set up and the VPC native alias IP is disabled. But on this one, you're gonna see the pod address range at the 10.52.0.0/14 and you're also gonna notice there's no service range down here at all 'cause that's all just gonna get picked for you.
So when we go down here to the bottom, what we're gonna do is we're gonna go ahead and run that
kubectl get pods and you're gonna see all the pods here and they're gonna be in that range which is great, it's just that I didn't get to choose this range, therefore it's just gonna make things a lot more random and not predictable in the sense of if you're dealing with a big network or if you're doing some, let's say, hybrid or however you're routing your network routing map is set up, this isn't gonna work as well because you can just get any IP range that it wants to give you.
