Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE): Beginner to Pro
Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE) is Google's fully managed Kubernetes platform. Learn the basics and leverage GKE for easy app deployment, management and scaling on GCP.
What you'll learn
Not many technologies have had the rapid success that Kubernetes has enjoyed in the past few years. By taking the game-changing developer technology of containers and orchestrating them for production, Kubernetes has been deployed in some of the biggest cloud compute projects by some huge household names. But to many people it seems like learning a whole new skill set – what are pods, deployments, annotations, and node affinities anyway? Don't panic! This course will guide you from the absolute basics of how and why to use containers, to running them at scale with Kubernetes. The heavy lifting of actually crafting a cluster from magic dust and ancient spells is done for you by Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE), so you can concentrate on deploying your app and seeing it scale to global success. Once you're up and running with your apps in GKE, we'll then touch on some advanced topics so you’re really making the most of everything it has to offer. In this course, you’ll learn: * The benefits of using containers for packaging and running applications. * How to orchestrate containers using Kubernetes. * Working with stateless and stateful applications, persistent storage, and databases with Kubernetes. * Advanced GKE features, including regional failover and global load balancing. No prior container or Kubernetes experience is required – this course really will take you from beginner to pro! Keep being awesome, Cloud Gurus! >**Note:** The Github for the course materials/scripts can be found at this link: [https://github.com/ACloudGuru-Resources/Course_GKE_Beginner_To_Pro]()
