This accelerated on-demand course introduces participants to the comprehensive and flexible infrastructure and platform services provided by Google Cloud with a focus on Compute Engine. Through a combination of video lectures, demos, and hands-on labs, participants explore and deploy solution elements, including infrastructure components such as networks, systems and applications services. This course also covers deploying practical solutions including customer-supplied encryption keys, security and access management, quotas and billing, and resource monitoring.

To get the most out of this course, participants should have:
• Completed Google Cloud Fundamentals: Core Infrastructure or have equivalent experience
• Completed Essential Google Cloud Infrastructure: Foundation or have equivalent experience

-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: Cloud IAM
-In this module, we cover Cloud Identity and Access Management (or Cloud IAM). Cloud IAM is a sophisticated system built on top of email-like address names, job-type roles, and granular permissions. If you're familiar with IAM from other implementations, look for the differences that Google has implemented to make IAM easier to administer and more secure.

Module 2: Storage and Database Services
-In this module, we cover storage and database services in GCP. Every application needs to store data, whether it's business data, media to be streamed, or sensor data from devices.

Module 3: Resource Management
-In this module, we will cover Resource Management. Resources in GCP are billable, so managing them means controlling cost. There are several methods in place for controlling access to the resources, and there are quotas that limit consumption.

Module 4: Resource Monitoring
-In this module, we’ll give you an overview of the resource monitoring options in GCP. The features covered in this module rely on Stackdriver, a service that provides monitoring, logging, and diagnostics for your applications.
