Virtual Machines in the Cloud
Compute Engine lets you run virtual machines on Google’s global infrastructure. This module covers how Compute Engine works, with a focus on Google virtual networking.
Storage in the Cloud
Every application needs to store data. Different applications and workloads require different storage and database solutions. This module describes and differentiates among Google Cloud’s core storage options:Cloud Storage, Cloud SQL, Cloud Spanner, Cloud Datastore, and Google Bigtable.
Containers in the Cloud
Containers are simple and interoperable, and they enable seamless, fine-grained scaling. Kubernetes is an orchestration layer for containers. Kubernetes Engine is Kubernetes as a service, a scalable managed offering that runs on Google’s infrastructure. You direct the creation of a cluster, and Kubernetes Engine schedules your containers into the cluster and manages them automatically, based on requirements you define. This module explains how Kubernetes Engine works and how it helps deploy applications in containers.
Applications in the Cloud
App Engine is a Platform-as-a-Service (“PaaS”) offering. The App Engine platform manages the hardware and networking infrastructure required to run your code. App Engine provides built-in services that many web applications need. This module describes how App Engine works.
Developing, Deploying, and Monitoring in the Cloud
Popular tools for development, deployment, and monitoring just work in Google Cloud. Customers also have options for tools in each of these three areas that are tightly integrated with Google Cloud. This module covers those tools.
Big Data and Machine Learning in the Cloud
Google Cloud’s big-data and machine learning offerings are intended to help customers get the most out of data. These tools are intended to be simple and practical to embed in your applications. This module describes the available big-data and machine learning services and explains the usefulness of each.
