  • Migrate workload from a remote cluster to an Anthos GKE cluster

Pre-requisites

Participants should have familiarity with IT contexts such as IP addresses, virtual machines, and web servers. They should be comfortable working at the Linux command line. Completion of the Architecting with Google Kubernetes Engine Learning Path is a prerequisite for success.

Beginner

This beginner course builds upon the prerequisite courses from the Architecting with Google Kubernetes Engine learning path. The Anthos modernization platform is introduced with recommended options for attacking problems introduced by microservices architectures, and hybrid cloud environments.
