Cloud Technology training: Networking in Google Cloud Platform

Become a Cloud Network Engineer on GCP. Implement VPCs, hybrid connectivity, network services, and security for established network architectures for successful cloud implementations. This course is part of Google's Network Engineering track that leads to the Professional Cloud Network Engineer certificate.

Become a Google Cloud Network Engineer

Are you a Network Engineer planning to use Google Cloud Platform? Do you want to become a Professional on the Google Cloud Platform? Time to gain the knowledge and skills to implement VPCs, hybrid connectivity, network services, and security for established network architectures for successful cloud implementations. This training offers you a broad study of networking options on the Google Cloud Platform and prepares you for the Google Network Engineer exam.

Networking on GCP is perfect for 

Join us if you are a Network Engineers or Admins who uses Google Cloud Platform or is planning to do so and want to get to know the software-defined networking solutions in the Cloud. Before enrolling, you need to complete the Google Cloud Fundamentals: Core Infrastructure course, or have equivalent experience. Prior understanding of the 7 layer OSI model, IPv4 addressing and routes will help you get the most out of this training.

What will you learn during the Networking on GCP training? 

This 2-day training offers a combination of presentations, demos, and hands-on labs. You will 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. We will also cover common network design patterns and automated deployment using Deployment Manager or Terraform.
