Deploy application on a hybrid cloud using Google Kubernetes

Learn how to deploy modern applications on a hybrid cloud environment and level up your career

Deploy Ghost CMS blog application on Google Kubernetes Engine and its backend — MySQL server– on a virtual machine created on your personal computer that simulate an OnPrem data center.

What you’ll learn

  • Hands on experience with some of the top modern cloud tools.
  • Understand how OnPrem resources interact with the cloud (distributed systems).
  • Deploy applications on Google Kubernetes Engine.
  • Architect a plan for hybrid cloud application deployments.

Requirements

Deploy Ghost CMS blog application on Google Kubernetes Engine and its backend — MySQL server– on a virtual machine created on your personal computer that simulate an OnPrem data center.

 

Your OnPrem environment will connect to the Google network using strongSwan vpn and google vpn gateway to establish a Site-to-Site VPN connection. You will be exposed to modern tools like docker, helm, nginx, Kubernetes, VMs, DNS, VPC, subnets, firewalls, GitHub, cli etc. and ultimately understand the role each of them play in a modern cloud infrastructure.

 

Since this is a hybrid cloud course, you will also be exposed to OnPrem setups — which heavily rely on Linux administrations. We will learn how to install apps, like strongSwan vpn and mysql db server, on Ubuntu and most importantly also learn how to configure them.

 

Nginx will also be deployed on the Google Kubernetes Cluster using helm, and will be used as a reverse proxy to expose the blog application to the internet. Once all the resources have been successfully deployed, you will use a DNS provider to create a hostname and generate an SSL certificate. You will then create an A record to resolve your application’s hostname to the nginx provided external IP address.

 

At the end of each section you will be quizzed on the concepts which were introduced to reinforce what you learned. Ultimately, after completing this course, you would be able to architect and deploy modern applications in a Hybrid Cloud environment regardless of which cloud provider you choose.
