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, virtual machines and applications services. You will learn how to use the Google Cloud through the console and Cloud Shell. You'll also learn about the role of a cloud architect, approaches to infrastructure design, and virtual networking configuration with Virtual Private Cloud (VPC), Projects, Networks, Subnetworks, IP addresses, Routes, and Firewall rules.

To get the most out of this course, participants should have:
• Completed Google Cloud Fundamentals: Core Infrastructure or have equivalent experience
• Basic proficiency with command-line tools and Linux operating system environments
• Systems Operations experience including deploying and managing applications, either on-premises or in a public cloud environment

-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: Introduction to GCP
-In this module, we will provide you with an introduction to GCP by building on what you learned about the GCP infrastructure from the course introduction.

Module 2: Virtual Networks
-In this module, we start by introducing Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) which is Google’s managed networking functionality for your Cloud Platform resources. Then we dissect networking into its fundamental components, which are projects, networks, subnetworks, IP addresses, routes and firewall rules, along with network pricing.

Module 3: Virtual Machines
-In this module, we cover virtual machine instances, or VMs. First we'll start with the basics of Compute Engine, followed by a quick little lab to get you more familiar with creating virtual machines. Then, we’ll look at the different CPU and memory options that enable you to create different configurations.Next, we will look at images and the different disk options available with Compute Engine. After that, we will discuss very common Compute Engine actions that you might encounter in your day-to-day job. This will be followed by an in-depth lab that explores many of the features and services covered in this module.
