The course is part of these learning paths
Once you have implemented your application infrastructure on Google Cloud Platform, you will need to maintain it. Although you can set up Google Cloud to automate many operations tasks, you will still need to monitor, test, manage, and troubleshoot it over time to make sure your systems are running properly.
This course will walk you through these maintenance tasks and give you hands-on demonstrations of how to perform them. You can follow along with your own GCP account to try these examples yourself.
- Use Stackdriver to monitor, log, report on errors, trace, and debug
- Ensure your infrastructure can handle higher loads, failures, and cyber-attacks by performing load, resilience, and penetration tests
- Manage your data using lifecycle management and migration from outside sources
- Troubleshoot SSH errors, instance startup failures, and network traffic dropping
- System administrators
- People who are preparing to take the Google Professional Cloud Architect certification exam
- Google Cloud Platform: Fundamentals course or experience with Google Cloud Platform
I hope you enjoyed learning how to manage your Google Cloud infrastructure. Now, you know how to monitor and debug using stack driver, test your infrastructure under challenging conditions, manage your storage while keeping costs under control, and troubleshoot issues with instance and networks.
To learn more about Google Cloud Platform, you can read Google's online documentation. You can also try one of the other Google courses on Cloud Academy, and watch for new ones, because we're always developing new courses.
If you have any questions or comments, please let me know on the Cloud Academy Community Forums. Thanks, and keep on learning.
