Networking in Google Cloud - Agilitics

Networking in Google Cloud

This 2-day instructor-led course gives participants a broad study of networking options on Google Cloud. Through presentations, demonstrations, and hands-on labs, participants explore and deploy Google Cloud 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.

Duration: 2 days
Time: 9am to 5pm

This course teaches participants the following

• Configure Google VPC networks, subnets, and routers
• Control administrative access to VPC objects
• Control network access to endpoints in VPCs
•Interconnect networks among Google Cloud projects
•Interconnect networks among Google Cloud VPC networks and on-premises or other-cloud networks
• Choose among Google Cloud 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

Module 1
Google Cloud VPC Networking Fundamentals
Topics Covered:
•Recall that networks belong to projects. Explain the differences among default, auto, and
custom networks
•Create networks and subnets
•Explain how IPv4 addresses are assigned to Compute Engine instances
•Publish domain names using Google Cloud DNS
•Create Compute Engine instances with IP aliases
•Create Compute Engine instances with multiple virtual network interfaces

Module 2
Controlling Access to VPC Networks
Topics Covered:
• Outline how IAM policies affect VPC networks
•Control access to network resources using service accounts
•Control access to Compute Engine instances with tag based firewall rules.

Module 3
Sharing Networks across Projects
Topics Covered:
• Outline the overall workflow for configuring Shared VPC
•Differentiate between the IAM roles that allow network resources to be managed
• Configure peering between unrelated VPC Networks
•Recall when to use Shared VPC and when to use VPC Network Peering

Module 4
Load Balancing Topics Covered:
• Recall the various load balancing services
• Configure Layer 7 HTTP(S) load balancing
• Whitelist and blacklist IP traffic with Cloud Armor
• Cache content with Cloud CDN
• Explain Layer 4 TCP or SSL proxy load balancing
• Explain regional network load balancing
• Configure internal load balancing
•Recall the choices for enabling IPv6 Internet
connectivity for Google Cloud load balancers
•Determine which Google Cloud load balancer to use

Module 5
Hybrid Connectivity Topics Covered:
•Recall the Google Cloud interconnect and peering
services available to connect your infrastructure to
Google Cloud
•Explain Dedicated Interconnect and Partner
•Describe the workflow for configuring a Dedicated
• Build a connection over a VPN with Cloud Router
•Determine which Google Cloud interconnect service to
use when
•Explain Direct Peering and Partner Peering

Module 6
Networking Pricing and Billing Topics Covered:
• Recognize how networking features are charged for
• Use Network Service Tiers to optimize spend
• Determine which Network Service Tier to use when
•Recall that labels can be used to understand networking

Module 7
Network Design and Deployment Topics Covered:
•Explain common network design patterns
•Configure Private Google Access to allow access to certain Google Cloud services from VM instances with
only internal IP addresses
•Configure Cloud NAT to provide your instances without public IP addresses access to the internet
•Automate the deployment of networks using Deployment Manager or Terraform
• Launch networking solutions using Cloud Marketplace

Module 8
Network Monitoring and Troubleshooting Topics Covered:
•Configure uptime checks, alerting policies and charts
for your network services
•Use VPC Flow Logs to log and analyze network traffic

To get the most out of this course, participants should have:

•Completed Google Cloud 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
