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

As a Google Cloud Partner, we’ll share our experience on design patterns and the principles of Google Site Reliability Engineering (SRE).

Jellyfish has been selected by Google to facilitate the delivery of this two-day course. All of our trainers are experienced practitioners, so you can learn with total confidence.

This advanced course is a continuation of the Architecting with Google Cloud Platform: Infrastructure course and assumes you have gained the hands-on experience with the technologies covered in that course.

Through a combination of presentations, demos, and hands-on labs, you will learn how to design GCP deployments that are highly reliable and secure; and how to operate GCP deployments in a highly available and cost-effective manner.

This Architecting with Google Cloud Platform: Design and Process course is part of the Professional Cloud Architect track and is offered as a Virtual Classroom course, which will be hosted from the UK. It is also available as a private training session and can be delivered at our own training venues in the Rosebank Link, Johannesburg or Umhlanga, or any location of your choice.
