Course Overview

This 2-day instructor-led course gives participants a broad study of networking options on Google Cloud Platform. Through presentations, demonstrations, and hands-on labs, learners explore and deploy GCP networking technologies, such as Google Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) networks, subnets, firewalls, interconnection among networks, load balancing, Cloud DNS, and Cloud CDN. The course also covers common network design patterns and automated deployment using Cloud Deployment Manager.
