Architecting with Google Kubernetes Engine (AGKE)

( Duration: 3 Days )

This Architecting with Google Kubernetes Engine (AGKE) training course introduces the deploying and managing containerized applications on Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE) and other services provided by Google Cloud. Through a combination of presentations, demos, and hands-on labs, you will explore and deploy solution elements, including infrastructure components such as pods, containers, deployments, and services, as well as networks and application services. This course also covers deploying practical solutions, including security and access management, resource management, and resource monitoring.

By attending Architecting with Google Kubernetes Engine (AGKE) workshop, delegates will learn to:

  • Understand how software containers work.
  • Understand the architecture of Kubernetes.
  • Understand the architecture of Google Cloud.
  • Understand how pod networking works in Google Kubernetes Engine.
  • Create and manage Kubernetes Engine clusters using the Google Cloud Console and gcloud/kubectl commands.
  • Launch, roll back, and expose jobs in Kubernetes.
  • Manage access control using Kubernetes RBAC and IAM.
  • Manage pod security policies and network policies.
  • Use Secrets and ConfigMaps to isolate security credentials and configuration artifacts.
  • Understand Google Cloud choices for managed storage services.
  • Monitor applications running in Google Kubernetes Engine.

  • Attend a training on Google Cloud Fundamentals: Core Infrastructure or have equivalent experience.
  • Basic proficiency with command-line tools and Linux operating system environments

The Architecting with Google Kubernetes Engine (AGKE) class is ideal for:

  • Cloud architects, administrators, and SysOps/DevOps personnel
  • Individuals using Google Cloud Platform to create new solutions or to integrate existing systems, application environments, and infrastructure with the Google Cloud Platform.
