In this course, “Architecting with Google Kubernetes Engine: Production,” you’ll learn about Kubernetes and Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE) security; logging and monitoring; and using GCP managed storage and database services from within GKE.
This course is part of a specialization focused on building efficient computing infrastructures using Kubernetes and GKE. The specialization introduces participants to deploying and managing containerized applications on GKE and the other services provided by Google Cloud Platform. Through a combination of presentations, demos, and hands-on labs, participants explore and deploy solution elements, including infrastructure components such as pods, containers, deployments, and services; as well as networks and application services. The specialization also covers deploying practical solutions including security and access management, resource management, and resource monitoring.

In this module, you'll become familiar with the structure and layout of the course.
Access Control and Security in Kubernetes and GKE
In this module, you will learn about Kubernetes authentication and authorization, in order to control who is able to perform what actions to resources in your GKE clusters. Using what you learn in this module will help you ensure that appropriate access policies are in place to make your cluster and applications more secure.
GKE Logging and Monitoring
In this module you will learn how logging is implemented in Kubernetes, and how GKE extends that basic functionality using Stackdriver, which is a suite of multi-cloud resource reconnaissance tools provided by Google. You'll learn to locate and inspect Kubernetes logs produced by resources inside your GKE clusters. You’ll learn how to use Stackdriver to monitor and manage the availability and performance of your GCP resources, and also the applications that are built with those resources. You'll also learn to use Stackdriver and Google Bigquery for longer term retention and forensic analysis of logs. You'll learn how to create probes for wellness checks on the applications you’re running.
Using GCP Managed Storage Services with GKE
In this module, you’ll learn about the pros and cons of managed storage services versus self-managed containerized storage for your applications. You'll identify use cases for Cloud Storage for applications running in a Kubernetes cluster, and you'll survey the range of GCP managed database services. You'll learn how to use the Cloud SQL Proxy to simplify the task of connecting from within Kubernetes applications to Cloud SQL, one of those services.
