VM Migration

Advanced 5 Steps Hours 27 Credits

Google Cloud’s VM migration methodology provides a defined, repeatable path for users to follow. In this quest, you will get hands-on practice with this four-step migration sequence. You will build assessment reports with CloudPhysics, leverage Terraform’s infrastructure-as-code templates, perform lift-and-shift migrations with Cloud Endure, and finally replicate applications as cloud-native workloads. Enroll in this quest and get practice with Google’s current solution set for VM migration. As a bonus we include a basic lab on Google Kubernetes Engine for those needing a refresher.



Students enrolling in this Quest should have taken the labs in the GCP Essentials Quest.
