About this course

Architecting with Google Cloud 

Master the comprehensive and flexible infrastructure and platform services provided by Google Cloud, with a focus on Compute Engine. 

Through a combination of demos, presentations, and hands-on labs, you get to explore and deploy solution elements, including infrastructure components like networks, application services, and systems.

Not only that, but you also learn how to deploy practical solutions including securely interconnecting networks, security and access management, quotas and billing, customer-supplied encryption keys, and resource monitoring.
