GCPANTH - Architecting Hybrid Cloud Infrastructure with Anthos

Discover how to modernize, manage, and observe applications using Kubernetes—whether the application is deployed on-premises or on Google Cloud. This certification & training course uses lectures and hands-on labs to help you explore and deploy using Kubernetes Engine (GKE), GKE Connect, Istio service mesh, and Anthos Config Management capabilities that will enable you to work with modern applications, even when they are split among multiple clusters hosted by multiple providers, or on-premises. This is a continuation of Architecting with GKE, and you'll need hands-on experience with the technologies covered in that course in order to benefit from this course.
