Google Cloud is the birthplace of Kubernetes, an open-source system used to deploy, scale, and manage containerized applications. In this course, you'll begin by learning about Google Kubernetes Engine, the different modes of operations, and the types of clusters that can be created. Next, you'll examine how to create different GKE clusters and explore Kubernetes pods and different types of controller objects. You'll examine GKE security features, the different aspects of GKE networking, and the storage options for applications running on GKE. Finally, you'll learn to deploy a GKE cluster and a Docker container image on a GKE cluster, create a Google Cloud service account, and configure GKE monitoring and logging. This course is one of a collection of courses that prepares learners for the Google Cloud Associate Cloud Engineer certification.
