Preparing for Google Cloud Certification: Cloud Network Engineer

Advance your career as a network engineer. This Google Cloud Certification Network Engineer training, provided by Alvernia University, will prepare you for the industry-recognized Google Cloud Professional Cloud Network Engineer certification.

Work with VPC networks that span multiple zones and multiple regions. As a network engineer, Google, you will use open-source tools to gather network information, including latency, connectivity, and traffic and use this information to determine where network performance can be improved. Build a minimal web application with Google App Engine and then explore various ways to use Identity-Aware Proxy (IAP) to restrict application access and provide user identity. Create different types of load balancers and see how they improve network performance. Finally, build and test a high-throughput VPN, between a simulated VPC and on-premises network environment.

Preparing for Google Cloud Certification: Cloud DevOps Engineer Professional Certificate Courses

Google Cloud Platform Fundamentals: Core Infrastructure

This course introduces you to important concepts and terminology for working with the Google Cloud Platform (GCP).

By the end of this course, you will be able to:

  • Compare many of the computing and storage services available in Google Cloud Platform, including Google App Engine, Google Compute Engine, Google Kubernetes Engine, Google Cloud Storage, Google Cloud SQL and BigQuery.
  • Learn about important resource and policy management tools, such as the Google Cloud Resource Manager hierarchy and Google Cloud Identity and Access Management.
  • Gain foundational skills for working with GCP through hands-on labs.

Networking in Google Cloud: Defining and Implementing Networks

Learn about the variety of networking options on Google Cloud. This course uses lectures, demonstrations and hands-on labs to help you explore and deploy Google Cloud networking technologies, including Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) networks, subnets, firewalls; interconnection among networks; load balancing; Cloud DNS; Cloud CDN; and Cloud NAT. You will also learn about common network design patterns and automated deployment using Cloud Deployment Manager or Terraform.

By the end of this course, you will be able to:

  • Configure Google VPC networks, subnets and routers and control administrative access to VPC objects.
  • Control network access to endpoints in VPCs.
  • Choose among Google Cloud load balancer and proxy options and configure them.
  • Use Cloud CDN to reduce latency and save money.

Networking in Google Cloud: Hybrid Connectivity and Network Management

Learn about the variety of networking options on Google Cloud. This course uses lectures, demonstrations and hands-on labs to help you explore and deploy Google Cloud networking technologies, including Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) networks, subnets, firewalls; interconnection among networks; load balancing; Cloud DNS; Cloud CDN; and Cloud NAT. You will also learn about common network design patterns and automated deployment using Cloud Deployment Manager or Terraform.

By the end of this course, you will be able to:

  • Interconnect networks among Google Cloud projects, VPC networks and on-premises or other-cloud networks and optimize network spend using Network Tiers.
  • Configure Cloud NAT or Private Google Access to provide instances without public IP addresses access to other services.
  • Design networks to meet common customer requirements and deploy networks declaratively using Cloud Deployment Manager or Terraform.
  • Configure monitoring and logging to troubleshoot networks problems.

Hands-On Labs in Google Cloud for Security Engineers

Security is an uncompromising feature of Google Cloud services and Google Cloud has developed specific tools for ensuring safety and identity across your projects. In this course you will get added hands-on practice understanding and securing resources with multiple Google Cloud services including Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE). This course is unlike other courses. It consists of one module of background videos, followed by a series of hands-on practice exercises on Google Cloud via Qwiklabs. The practice modules include no videos, lectures or quizzes – just more practice on real Google Cloud.

By the end of this course, you will be able to:

  • Create custom IAM roles.
  • Create and configure VPC network peering.
  • Secure a private Kubernetes cluster in Google Cloud.
