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.

Jellyfish has recently been named a Google Cloud Specialisation Partner of the Year. This title recognises our commitment to provide world-leading Cloud-based Training solutions that help our clients succeed.

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 as a Virtual Classroom event. To host this Virtual Classroom event we use the market leading Cisco WebEx suite. We take care of all the administration and all you will need to do is attend the session and enjoy your training.

As every network has a unique configuration, you should ensure that you are able to connect to WebEx and that you meet the system requirements. And you can test your connection here to check you are good to go. We also offer private training at a location of your choice.

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
