Description

Course Description:

GKE is Google’s container management and orchestration service that allows you to run your containers at scale. GKE provides a managed Kubernetes infrastructure that gives you the power of Kubernetes while allowing you to focus on deploying and running your container clusters.

Intended audience:

  • This course is for developers or operations engineers looking to deploy containerized applications and/or services on Google’s Cloud Platform.
  • Viewers should have a basic understanding of containers. Some familiarity with the Google Cloud Platform will also be helpful but is not required.

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe the containerization functionality available on Google Cloud Platform.
  • Create and manage a container cluster in GKE.
  • Deploy your application to a GKE container cluster.

This Course Includes:

  • 45 minutes of high-definition video
  • Hands on demo

What You'll Learn:

  • Course Intro: What to expect from this course
  • GKE Platform: In this lesson, we’ll start digging into Docker, Kubernetes, and CLI.
  • GKE Infrastructure: Now that we understand a bit more about the platform, we’ll get into Docker images and K8 orchestration.
  • Cluster Creation: In this lesson, we’ll demo through the steps necessary to create a GKE cluster.
  • Application and Service Publication: In this live demo we’ll create a Kubernetes pod.
  • Cluster Management: In this lesson, we’ll discuss how you update a cluster and rights management.
  • Summary: A wrap-up and summary of what we’ve learned in this course.

Transcript

Thank you very much, and this concludes our Cloud Academy course on Google Cloud Platform Container Engine. So in this course, we discussed the Container Engine infrastructure, actually creating GKE clusters, deploying our applications or services to those clusters and then managing those clusters. It was a next step, kinda wanna build on your GKE knowledge with our upcoming course, Adding Resiliency to GKE. Thank you again for taking the time to watch this course, and please leave any feedback you may have on the comments section in the course landing page. Thank you again.
