Networking in Google Cloud Platform

This two-day instructor-led class gives participants broad study of networking options on Google Cloud Platform. Through a combination of presentations, demonstrations, and hands-on labs, participants explore and deploy GCP networking technologies, such as Google Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) networks, subnets, firewalls; interconnection among networks; load balancing; Cloud DNS; Cloud CDN; Cloud NAT. The course will also cover common network design patterns and automated deployment using Deployment Manager or Terraform.

Objectives

  • Configure Google VPC networks, subnets, and routers
  • Control administrative access to VPC objects
  • Control network access to endpoints in VPCs
  • Interconnect networks among GCP projects
  • Interconnect networks among GCP VPC networks and on-premises or other-cloud networks
  • Choose among GCP load balancer and proxy options and configure them
  • Use Cloud CDN to reduce latency and save money
  • Optimize network spend using Network Tiers
  • Deploy networks declaratively using Cloud Deployment Manager
  • Design networks to meet common customer requirements
  • Configure monitoring and logging to troubleshoot networks problems

Audience

This class is intended for network engineers and network admins that are either using Google Cloud Platform or are planning to do so. The class is also for individuals that want to be exposed to software-defined networking solutions in the cloud.
