Advanced 5 Steps 6 hours 33 Credits
Google Cloud’s four step structured Cloud Migration Path Methodology provides a defined and repeatable path for users to follow when migrating and modernizing Virtual Machines. In this quest, you will get hands-on practice with Google’s current solution set for VM assessment, planning, migration, and modernization. You will start by analyzing your lab environment and building assessment reports with CloudPhysics and StratoZone, then build a landing zone within Google Cloud leveraging Terraform’s infrastructure-as-code templates, next you will manually transform a two-tier application into a cloud-native workload running on Kubernetes, and finally, transform a VM workload into Kubernetes with Migrate for Anthos and migrate a VM between cloud environments.
Prerequisites:Students enrolling in this Quest should have taken the labs in the Google Cloud Essentials Quest.
In this lab you'll learn how to assess an IT environment with StratoZone's scalable discovery.
This lab provides a high level overview of the Google Cloud Adoption Framework and then deep dives into how to automate environment setup and deployments on GCP.
warning VM Migration: Modernize an Application Stack with GKE and MySQL
This lab will walk you through the optimization stage - migrate from MySQL on GCE to Cloud SQL (managed service).
In this lab you'll use Migrate for Anthos to migrate a Compute Engine VM instance to a corresonding container image hosted in a Kubernetes pod.
