Cloud Architecture: Design, Implement, and Manage

Google via Qwiklabs

Overview

Earn a skill badge by completing the Cloud Architecture - Design, Implement, and Manage quest, a unique quest consisting of a series of challenge labs instead of standard hands-on labs. In this Quest, you will be tested on how to: deploy a publicly accessible website using Apache web servers, manage the configuration of a Compute Engine VM using startup scripts, configure a firewall using Cloud Deployment Manager, configure secure RDP using a Windows Bastion host and firewall rules, build and deploy a Docker image to a Kubernetes cluster, and then update it, and create a CloudSQL instance and import a MySQL database. This quest is a great resource for understanding topics that will appear in the Google Cloud Certified Professional Cloud Architect certification exam. A skill badge is an exclusive digital badge issued by Google Cloud in recognition of your proficiency with Google Cloud products and services and tests your ability to apply your knowledge in an interactive hands-on environment. Complete the skill badge quest, and final assessment challenge lab, to receive a digital badge that you can share with your network.
