Description

Lab Overview

Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE) is a managed cloud service for deploying, managing, and scaling your containerized applications using Kubernetes and Google Cloud infrastructure. In this Lab you will learn different ways to deploy applications and manage a GKE cluster. You will first deploy a single-container game application followed by a multi-container application (WordPress) provided by the Google Cloud Platform Marketplace. Along the way, you will learn about the architecture of GKE clusters, how to connect to GKE clusters using the popular Kubernetes command line tool kubectl, and understand some of the ways that GKE integrates with other Google Cloud services.
