Architecting Global Private Clouds with VPC Networks

by Janani Ravi

This course introduces networking and VPCs on the Google Cloud Platform (GCP). This includes: auto and custom VPCs, the differences between VPCs on the GCP versus Amazon Web Services (AWS), designing subnets, and advanced features such as Shared VPC.

What you'll learn

Understanding the exact semantics and features of network services on public cloud platforms can get complicated. In this course, Architecting Global Private Clouds with VPC Networks, you will gain the ability to create and correctly configure both auto and custom-mode Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) networks, understand the semantics of subnets, and work with routes as well as firewall rules. First, you will learn the fundamental concepts of networking on the Google Cloud Platform (GCP), and how GCP networking differs from that on other public cloud platforms. Next, you will discover how the default VPC and other auto-mode and custom-mode VPCs work. Finally, you will explore how to use Shared VPCs to adapt your network architecture to use cases such as multi-tier apps and hybrid scenarios. When you’re finished with this course, you will have the skills and knowledge of Google VPC Networks needed to design and organize your cloud resources for both ease-of-use and isolation.
