Google Cloud Platform Fundamentals

via Pluralsight


Google Cloud Platform gives your applications the robust foundation behind services like Google search and Gmail. This course will provide an overview.

Over the last few years, the cloud has proven itself as a successful enabler for organizations of all sizes to improve agility, scale, reliability, and spend management. It has also made available capabilities that have greatly accelerated the adoption of a wide variety of new types of applications – from big data to Internet of things. This rapidly expanding set of capabilities can be difficult for anyone to keep up with, and that challenge is further compounded when attempting to map capabilities across different public cloud providers. This course, Google Cloud Platform Fundamentals, provides you with an extensive overview of Google Cloud Platform. While the Google Cloud Platform is a more recent offering than some of its competitors, it draws on years of experience running Google's massive internal infrastructure and exposes a streamlined set of solution-focused capabilities to help you build great systems. First you will explore the core building blocks of the platform. Next you'll explore the characteristics that differentiate Google's offering from other cloud platforms. Finally you'll learn the common application architectural patterns. By the end of this course, you will be able to understand how the areas fit together and provide starting points for deeper exploration.
