Cloud IAM
Hello and welcome. I'm Philipp Maier, a course developer with Google Cloud Platform, and this is module 1, Cloud Identity and Access Management, or IAM. Cloud IAM is a sophisticated system built on top of email-like address names, drop tables, and granular permissions. If you're familiar with IAM from other implementations, look for the differences that Google has implemented to make IAM easier to administer and more secure. In this module, I will start by introducing Cloud IAM from a high-level perspective. Then we will dive into each of the different components within Cloud IAM, which are organizations, roles, members, and service accounts. I will also introduce some best practices to help you apply these concepts in your day to day work. Finally, you will get first-hand experience with Cloud IAM through our lab.

Data Storage Services
Hello and welcome. I am Philipp Maier, a course developer with Google Cloud Platform, and this is module 2, Data Storage Services. Every application needs to store data, whether it's business data, media to be streamed, or sensor data from devices. Sometimes we characterize data by the three Vs. Variety, which refers to how similar, structured or variable the data is; velocity, or essentially how fast the data comes; and volatility, which refers to for how long the data retains value and therefore needs to be accessible. From an application-centered perspective, the technology is to store and retrieve the data, whether it's a database or an object store is less important than whether that service supports the application's requirements for efficiently storing and retrieving the data. When you take a look at Google's offerings for data storage services, there are a lot of services to choose from. In this module, we will cover Cloud Storage, Cloud SQL, Cloud Spanner, Cloud Datastore, and Cloud Bigtable. To get you more comfortable with these services, you will get to apply them in three labs. Let me start by giving you a high-level overview of these different services.

Resource Management
Hello and welcome. I'm Philipp Maier, a course developer with Google Club Platform, and this is module 3, Resource Management. Resources in GCP are billable, so managing them means cost control. There are several methods in place for controlling access to the resources, and there are quotas that limit consumption. In most cases, the default quotas can be raised on request, but having them in place provides a checkpoint or a chance to make sure that this is really the resource that you want to intend to consume in greater quantity. In this module, we will build on what we learned in the Cloud IAM module. First, we will provide an overview of the Cloud Resource Manager. Then, we will go into quotas, labels, and names. Next, we will cover billing to help you set budgets and alerts. To round up your learning experience, you will get to examine billing data with BigQuery in a lab.

Resource Monitoring
Hello and welcome. I'm Philipp Maier, a course developer with Google Cloud Platform, and this is module 4, Resource Monitoring. The features covered in this module rely on Stackdriver, a service that provides monitoring, logging, and diagnostics for your applications. Let me start by giving you a high-level overview of Stackdriver and its features.
