Networking in Google Cloud Platform

This course provides students a broad study of networking options on Google Cloud Platform. Through presentations, demonstrations, and hands-on labs. Students will explore and deploy GCP networking technologies, such as Google Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) networks, subnets, firewalls, interconnection among networks, load balancing, Cloud DNS, and Cloud CDN. This course also covers common network design patterns and automated deployment using Cloud Deployment Manager.
