This intermediate-level quest is unique among Qwiklabs quests. These labs have been curated to give operators hands-on practice with Anthos—a new, open application modernization platform on Google Cloud. Anthos enables you to build and manage modern hybrid applications. Tasks include: installing service mesh, collecting telemetry, and securing your microservices with service mesh policies. This quest is composed of labs targeted to teach you everything you need to know to introduce service mesh, and Anthos, into your next hybrid cloud project.
