Google Cloud Partner of the Year
A private training session for your team. Groups can be of any size, at a location of your choice including our training centres.

This course uses lectures, demos, and hands-on labs to help you explore and deploy Google Cloud networking technologies. You will learn about common network design patterns and automated deployment.

We will cover some of the key technologies and principles used when building a Cloud network including Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) networks, subnets, and firewalls; interconnection among networks; load balancing; Cloud DNS; Cloud CDN; and Cloud NAT.

You will then move on to look at using Cloud Deployment Manager or Terraform to automate essential parts of the deployment.

This Networking on Google Cloud course is offered as a private training session that can be delivered virtually or at a location of your choice.

Course overview
Who should attend:
  • Network engineers and Admins who are either using Google Cloud or are planning to do so
  • Individuals who want to be exposed to software-defined networking solutions in the cloud

By the end of the day you’ll have a deeper understanding of the main networking infrastructure in Google Cloud and how you can use these solutions to achieve business objectives.

Walk away with the ability to:
  • Configure Google VPC networks, subnets, and routers
  • Control administrative access to VPC objects
  • Control network access to endpoints in VPCs
  • Interconnect networks among Google Cloud projects
  • Interconnect networks among Google Cloud VPC networks and on-premises or other-cloud networks
  • Choose among Google Cloud load balancer and proxy options and configure them
  • Use Cloud CDN to reduce latency and save money
  • Optimise network spend using Network Tiers
  • Configure Cloud NAT or Private Google Access to provide instances without public IP addresses to other services
  • Deploy networks declaratively using Cloud Deployment Manager or Terraform
  • Design networks to meet common customer requirements
  • Configure monitoring and logging to troubleshoot network problems

To get the most out of this course, participants should:

  • Complete Google Cloud Fundamentals: Core Infrastructure or have equivalent experience
  • Have prior understanding o the seven-layer OSI model
  • Have prior undersatnding of IPv4 addressing
  • Have prior experience with managing IPv4 routes
