This two-day instructor-led class equips students to build highly reliable and efficient solutions on Google Cloud using proven design patterns. It is a continuation of the Architecting with Google Compute Engine or Architecting with Google Kubernetes Engine course and assumes hands-on experience with the technologies covered in either of those courses. Through a combination of presentations, design activities, and hands-on labs, participants learn to define and balance business and technical requirements to design Google Cloud deployments that are highly reliable, highly available, secure, and cost-effective.

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.

  • Orchestrate microservice deployments using Kubernetes and GKE
  • Leverage App Engine for a completely automated platform as a service (PaaS)
  • Create serverless applications using Cloud Functions

Module 7: Designing Reliable Systems

  • Design services to meet requirements for availability, durability, and scalability
  • Implement fault-tolerant systems by avoiding single points of failure, correlated failures, and cascading failures
  • Avoid overload failures with the circuit breaker and truncated exponential backoff design patterns
  • Design resilient data storage with lazy deletion
  • Analyze disaster scenarios and plan for disaster recovery using cost/risk analysis

Module 8: Security

  • Design secure systems using best practices like separation of concerns, principle of least privilege, and regular audits
  • Leverage Cloud Security Command Center to help identify vulnerabilities
  • Simplify cloud governance using organizational policies and folders
  • Secure people using IAM roles, Identity-Aware Proxy, and Identity Platform
  • Manage the access and authorization of resources by machines and processes using service accounts
  • Secure networks with private IPs, firewalls, and Private Google Access
  • Mitigate DDoS attacks by leveraging Cloud DNS and Cloud Armor

Module 9: Maintenance and Monitoring

  • Manage new service versions using rolling updates, blue/green deployments, and canary releases
  • Forecast, monitor, and optimize service cost using the Google Cloud pricing calculator and billing reports and by analyzing billing data
  • Observe whether your services are meeting their SLOs using Cloud Monitoring and Dashboards
  • Use Uptime Checks to determine service availability
  • Respond to service outages using Cloud Monitoring Alerts
