ARCHITECTING WITH GOOGLE CLOUD PLATFORM: DESIGN AND PROCESS (AGCP-DP)

Course Overview

This​ ​two-day​ ​instructor-led​ ​training class​ ​equips​ ​students​ ​to​ ​build​ ​highly​ ​reliable​ ​and​ ​efficient​ ​solutions​ ​on​ ​Google​ ​Cloud Platform,​ ​using​ ​proven​ ​design​ ​patterns​ ​and​ ​the​ ​principles​ ​of​ ​Google​ ​Site​ ​Reliability​ ​Engineering​ ​(SRE).​ ​It​ ​is​ ​a continuation​ ​of​ ​the​ ​​Architecting​ ​with​ ​Google​ ​Cloud​ ​Platform:​ ​Infrastructure​​ ​course​ ​and​ ​assumes​ ​hands-on experience​ ​with​ ​the​ ​technologies​ ​covered​ ​in​ ​that​ ​course.

Through​ ​a​ ​combination​ ​of​ ​presentations,​ ​demos,​ ​and​ ​hands-on​ ​labs,​ ​participants​ ​learn​ ​to​ ​design​ ​GCP​ ​deployments that​ ​are​ ​highly​ ​reliable​ ​and​ ​secure;​ ​and​ ​how​ ​to​ ​operate​ ​GCP​ ​deployments​ ​in​ ​a​ ​highly​ ​available​ ​and​ ​cost-effective manner.

Course Objectives

This course teaches participants the following skills:

  • Design for high availability, scalability, and maintainability
  • Assess tradeoffs and make sound choices among Google Cloud Platform products
  • Integrate on-premises and cloud resources
  • Identify ways to optimize resources and minimize cost
  • Implement processes that minimize downtime, such as monitoring and alarming, unit and integration testing, production resilience testing, and incident post-mortem analysis
  • Implement policies that minimize security risks, such as auditing, separation of duties and least privilege
  • Implement technologies and processes that assure business continuity in the event of a disaster

What Our Students Have to Say

"As a client of Makintouch, I would recommend the company as a leading PC-based training school. When we needed half day courses to fit the schedules of our employees they were able to customize them to meet our company’s needs" – Java Struts
