-In this module we introduce the Architecting with Google Compute Engine course series. This course series is defined for cloud solution architects, DevOps engineers, and anyone who's interested in using GCP, to create new solutions or to integrate existing systems, application environments, and infrastructure with a focus on Compute Engine.

Module 1: Interconnecting Networks
-In this module, we’ll focus on GCP’s hybrid connectivity products, which are Cloud VPN, Cloud Interconnect, and Peering. We’ll also look at options for sharing VPC networks within GCP.

Module 2: Load Balancing and Autoscaling
-In this module, we will cover the different types of load balancers that are available in GCP. We will also go over managed instance groups and their autoscaling configurations, which can be used by these load balancing configurations.

Module 3: Infrastructure Automation
-In this module, we cover how to use Deployment Manager to automate the deployment of infrastructure and how to use GCP Marketplace to launch infrastructure solutions. You will use Deployment Manager or Terraform to deploy a VPC network, a firewall rule, and VM instances in the lab of this module.

Module 4: Managed Services
-In this module, we give you an overview of BigQuery, Cloud Dataflow, Cloud Dataprep by Trifacta, and Cloud Dataproc. Now all of these services are for data analytics purposes, and since that’s not the focus of this course series, there won’t be any labs in this module. Instead, we’ll have a quick demo to illustrate how easy it is to use a managed service.
