About this Specialization

This specialization introduces learners to the comprehensive and flexible infrastructure and platform services provided by Google Cloud Platform, with a focus on Compute Engine. Through a combination of presentations, demos, and hands-on labs, participants explore and deploy solution elements, including infrastructure components such as networks, systems and applications services. This course also covers deploying practical solutions including securely interconnecting networks, customer-supplied encryption keys, security and access management, quotas and billing, and resource monitoring. This class is intended for Cloud Solutions Architects, DevOps Engineers or individuals using Compute Engine. Note: This Specialization used to be called Architecting with Google Cloud Platform. As the Specialization is now focused on Compute Engine as the computing platform, we have renamed it to Architecting with Google Compute Engine. If you are looking to learn more about App Engine, Cloud Functions and Google Kubernetes Engine, which are services previously covered in the Elastic Cloud Infrastructure: Containers and Services course of this specialization, please refer to the Developing Applications with Google Cloud Platform Specialization and the Architecting with Kubernetes Engine Specialization. >>> By enrolling in this specialization you agree to the Qwiklabs Terms of Service as set out in the FAQ and located at: https://qwiklabs.com/terms_of_service <<<
