Networking in Google Cloud

This 2-day instructor-led course offers participants a comprehensive study of network options on the Google Cloud platform. Through a combination of presentations, demonstrations, and hands-on labs, participants explore and implement GCP network technologies, such as:
  • Google Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) networks, subnets, firewalls; interconnection between networks; load balancing;
  • DNS in the cloud;
  • Cloud CDN;
  • NAT from the cloud.
The course will also address common network design standards and automated deployment using Deployment Manager or Terraform.


Este curso enseña a los participantes las siguientes habilidades:
  • Utilizar las mejores prácticas para el desarrollo de aplicaciones.
  • Elegir la opción de almacenamiento de datos adecuada para los datos de su aplicación.
  • Implementar la gestión de identidad federada.
  • Desarrollar componentes de aplicación o microservicios ligeramente acoplados.
  • Integrar componentes de aplicaciones y fuentes de datos.
  • Depurar, rastrear y monitorear aplicaciones.
  • Realizar implementaciones repetibles con contenedores y servicios de implementación.
  • Elegir el entorno de ejecución de la aplicación apropiado.
  • Usar Google Kubernetes Engine como un entorno de ejecución y luego cambie a una solución de entorno independiente con Google App Engine Flex.


This class is intended for network engineers and network administrators who use or plan to use the Google Cloud Platform. The class is also for people who want to expose themselves to software-defined network solutions in the cloud
