About This Course

The Google Cloud Platform is a suite of cloud services that provides reliable and highly scalable cloud computing services that help users store data and build, test, and deploy apps. The platform also provides computing services for backend, mobile, and web solutions using the internet.

Google Associate Cloud Engineers deploy applications, monitor operations, and manage enterprise solutions. They use Google’s Cloud Console and the command-line interface to perform common platform-based tasks to maintain one or more deployed solutions that leverage Google-managed or self-managed services on Google Cloud.

In this course, you will explore and learn to work with a variety of Google’s cloud services. By completing the course, you will also be prepared to pursue the Google Associate Cloud Engineer certification.
