New Book – Google Cloud Platform Administration

Google cloud platform administration

I am delighted to share with you my new book on Google Cloud Platform Administration. Over the past year, I have been working and exploring GCP with customers and clients.

The book introduces you to the Google Cloud platform and will help you gain an understanding of the different components of the GCP offering. The book covers concepts such as Compute engine, App engine and also Kubernetes engine.

Below is a list of chapters in the book.

1: INTRODUCTION TO GOOGLE CLOUD PLATFORM
2: GOOGLE CLOUD PLATFORM COMPUTE
3: GOOGLE CLOUD PLATFORM STORAGE
4: GOOGLE CLOUD PLATFORM NETWORKING
5: GOOGLE CLOUD PLATFORM CONTAINERS
6: GOOGLE CLOUD PLATFORM OPERATIONS
7: GOOGLE CLOUD PLATFORM IDENTITY AND SECURITY
8: GOOGLE CLOUD PLATFORM BILLING
9: GOOGLE CLOUD PLATFORM TOOLS

The book helps you gain hands-on experience using the GCP portal, cloud shell and the GCP SDK.

I am looking forward for any and all feedback so feel free to reach out to me @rjapproves.

VMWARE – GOOGLE JOINING HANDS

News coming in hot off the press is that Google is collaborating with VMware on Enterprise public cloud allowing VMware to offer Google cloud services on vCloud Air.

The statement read – “VMware (NYSE: VMW) today announced an expanded agreement with Google to deliver greater enterprise access to public cloud services via VMware vCloud® Air™. As part of this agreement, Google Cloud Platform will be tightly integrated into vCloud Air, providing enterprise customers with greater access to industry-leading cloud services on VMware’s hybrid cloud platform.”

Looks like federation is taking its own form with companies, rather rivals now collaborating because the market is pretty clear about the message they are sending out – we want one gateway to multiple cloud vendors. Eventually I foresee all players collaborating through well understood agreements to allow such federation.
