Architecting with Google Cloud Platform: Design & Process
 

If you looking to gain an understanding of how to leverage Google Cloud Platform in a modern day DevOps pipeline with micro-service architected applications then this course is for you.
 
You will learn which GCP service best suits your needs and how to build a solution that leverages the service most appropriate for your requirements. Learn how to build highly-available, scalable, secure solutions that can be easily monitored and maintained.
 

Duration: 2 Days
Price: R13,000 (ex vat)

Module 1: Defining the Service

  • Describe users in terms of roles and personas
  • Write qualitative requirements with user stories
  • Write quantitative requirements using key performance indicators (KPIs)
  • Evaluate KPIs using SLOs and SLIs
  • Determine the quality of application requirements using SMART criteria

Module 2: Microservice Design and Architecture
 

  • Decompose monolithic applications into microservices
  • Recognise appropriate microservice boundaries
  • Architect stateful and stateless services to optimise scalability and reliability
  • Implement services using 12-factor best practices
  • Build loosely coupled services by implementing a well-designed REST architecture
  • Design consistent, standard RESTful service APIs

Module 3: DevOps Automation

  • Automate service deployment using CI/CD pipelines
  • Leverage Cloud Source Repositories for source and version control
  • Automate builds with Cloud Build and build triggers
  • Manage container images with Google Container Registry
  • Create infrastructure with code using Deployment Manager and Terraform

Module 4: Choosing Storage Solutions

  • Choose the appropriate Google Cloud data storage service based on use case, durability, availability, scalability and cost
  • Store binary data with Cloud Storage
  • Store relational data using Cloud SQL and Spanner
  • Store NoSQL data using Firestore and Cloud Bigtable
  • Cache data for fast access using Memorystore
  • Build a data warehouse using BigQuery

Module 5: Google Cloud and Hybrid Network Architecture

  • Design VPC networks to optimise for cost, security, and performance
  • Configure global and regional load balancers to provide access to services
  • Leverage Cloud CDN to provide lower latency and decrease network egress
  • Evaluate network architecture using the Cloud Network Intelligence Center
  • Create hybrid networks between Google Cloud and on-premises data centers using Cloud Interconnect

Module 6: Deploying Applications to Google Cloud

  • Choose the appropriate Google Cloud deployment service for your applications
  • Configure scalable, resilient infrastructure using Instance Templates and Groups
  • Orchestrate microservice deployments using Kubernetes and GKE
  • Leverage App Engine for a completely automated platform as a service (PaaS)
  • Create serverless applications using Cloud Functions

Module 7: Designing Reliable Systems

  • Design services to meet requirements for availability, durability, and scalability
  • Implement fault-tolerant systems by avoiding single points of failure, correlated failures, and cascading failures
  • Avoid overload failures with the circuit breaker and truncated exponential backoff design patterns
  • Design resilient data storage with lazy deletion
  • Analyse disaster scenarios and plan for disaster recovery using cost/risk analysis

Module 8: Security

  • Design secure systems using best practices like separation of concerns, principle of least privilege, and regular audits
  • Leverage Cloud Security Command Center to help identify vulnerabilities
  • Simplify cloud governance using organisational policies and folders
  • Secure people using IAM roles, Identity-Aware Proxy, and Identity Platform
  • Manage the access and authorisation of resources by machines and processes using service accounts
  • Secure networks with private IPs, firewalls, and Private Google Access

Module 9: Maintenance and Monitoring

  • Manage new service versions using rolling updates, blue/green deployments, and canary releases
  • Forecast, monitor, and optimise service cost using the Google Cloud pricing calculator and billing reports and by analysing billing data
  • Observe whether your services are meeting their SLOs using Cloud Monitoring and Dashboards
  • Use Uptime Checks to determine service availability
  • Respond to service outages using Cloud Monitoring Alerts and processes using service accounts
