Classroom
Face to face, interactive classroom training run from our global training centres.
Virtual Classroom
A convenient and interactive learning experience, that enables you to attend on of our courses from the comfort of your own home or anywhere you can log on. We offer Virtual Classroom on selected live classroom courses where this will appear as an option under the location drop down if available. These can also be booked as Private Virtual Classrooms for exclusive business sessions.
Private
A private training session for your team. Groups can be of any size, at a location of your choice including our training centres.

Jellyfish has been selected by Google to facilitate the delivery of this two-day Anthos course. Our trainers work with the GCP on a daily basis and as a Google Cloud Partner you can benefit from the years of industry experience they’ll share with you.

Through presentations, and hands-on labs, participants explore and deploy using Kubernetes Engine (GKE), GKE Connect, Istio service mesh and Anthos Config Management capabilities that enable operators to work with modern applications even when split among multiple clusters hosted by multiple providers, or on-premises.

This is a continuation of Architecting with Google Kubernetes Engine and assumes hands-on experience with the technologies covered in that course.

This Architecting Hybrid Cloud Infrastructure with Anthos course is available at our training centre in The Shard, London and will run over two consecutive days. We also offer private training at a location of your choice or via Virtual Classroom.

Course overview
Who should attend:
This course is intended for the following participants:
  • Technical employees using GCP, including customer companies, partners and system integrators: deployment engineers, cloud architects, cloud administrators, system engineers, and SysOps/DevOps engineers.
  • Individuals using GCP to create, integrate, or modernize solutions using secure, scalable microservices architectures in hybrid environments.
Walk away with the ability to:
  • Deploy Istio service mesh control-plane and proxies using the Helm Kubernetes package manager or using the Istio on GKE add-on
  • Centrally observe, discover, and monitor your microservices-based applications across clusters using Istio service mesh adapters, including Prometheus, Grafana, or Kiali, or Stackdriver
  • Define and manage multi-cluster services, with ingress, using open-source Istio via shared and multi-control plane topologies
  • Connect and manage on-premises clusters, and workloads using GKE On-Prem
  • Enable consistent policy enforcement across multi-cluster environments using a configuration-as-code approach and your secure Git repository
Prerequisites
To get the most of out of this course, you should have:
  • Completed Google Cloud Platform Fundamentals: Core Infrastructure or have equivalent experience
  • Completed Architecting with Google Kubernetes Engine or have equivalent experience
Course agenda
Module 1: Anthos Overview
  • Understand Hybrid environments connected using Anthos
  • Explain problems identified and addressed when using Anthos with modern solution patterns
  • Describe the components of the Anthos technology stack
Module 2: Managing Hybrid Clusters using Kubernetes Engine
  • Understand the Anthos Compute Layer
  • Introduce the Anthos deployed on VMware cluster architecture
  • Explain the Anthos deployed on VMware components
  • Review initial networking considerations
  • Lab: Managing Hybrid Clusters using Kubernetes Engine
Module 3: Introduction to Service Mesh
  • Understand monolith to microservices evolution/transition and the benefits of service mesh
  • Discover how Istio is designed to resolve the challenges of microservices complexity using key control-plane components: Pilot, Mixer, and Citadel
  • Explain request routing whether service to service, or inbound when using Istio service mesh and the Envoy proxy
  • Lab A: Installing Open Source Istio on Kubernetes Engine
  • Lab B: Installing the Istio on GKE Add-On with Kubernetes Engine
Module 4: Observing Services using Service Mesh Adapters
  • Understand how the Mixer control-plane component enables telemetry collection, in on-premises and GCP environments, with the Istio adapter architecture
  • Observe telemetry with dashboards using Prometheus and Grafana
  • Trace application timing through services with Jaeger
  • Observe service topologies, relationships, and live traffic using Kiali
Module 5: Manage Traffic Routing with Service Mesh
  • Understand the Istio control-plane Pilot component
  • Review traffic management use cases including ingress and service to service flows
  • Configure and observe multiple methods of traffic management including version-specific routing, and shifting traffic gradually from one version of a microservice to another
  • Lab: Manage Traffic Routing with Istio and Envoy
Module 6: Manage Policies and Security with Service Mesh
  • Incrementally adopt Istio security across services using mTLS
  • Configure inbound authentication from outside the service mesh
  • Lab: Manage Policies and Security with Istio and Citadel
Module 7: Managing Policies using Anthos Config Management
  • Explain configuration challenges introduced when using multi-cluster topologies
  • Install Anthos Config Management, and connect your Git repository
  • Verify manual configuration changes (drift) are reversed, ensuring consistent policy
  • Update configuration using the Git repository and verify changes are applied
  • Lab: Managing Policies in Kubernetes Engine using Anthos Config Management
Module 8: Configuring Anthos GKE for Multi-Cluster Operation
  • Deploy shared control-plane, and multi control-plane architectures for multi-cluster deployments
  • Understand and configure DNS when locating external services
  • Understand and configure Citadel and certificates when enabling multi-cluster applications
  • Lab: Configuring GKE for Multi-Cluster Operation with Istio
  • Lab: Configuring GKE for Shared Control Plane Multi-Cluster Operation
