Course Description

Through 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.

Target Audience

We are looking for:

  • Network engineers and Admins who are either using Google Cloud Platform or are planning to do so 

  • Individuals who want to be exposed to software-defined networking solutions in the cloud

Prerequisites

Prerequisites

  • Completed Google Cloud Platform Fundamentals: Core Infrastructure or have equivalent experience.

  • Prior understanding of the 7 layer OSI model. 

  • Prior understanding of IPv4 addressing. 

  • Prior experience with managing IPv4 routes.

Key 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.

  • Configure Cloud NAT or Private Google Access to provide instances without public IP addresses access to other services. 

  • Deploy networks declaratively using Cloud Deployment Manager or Terraform. 

  • Design networks to meet common customer requirements. 

  • Configure monitoring and logging to troubleshoot networks problems.
