This was a great course. It moved a little fast but the labs were very detailed. The course helped me learn to navigate a number concepts and also made me aware of other areas where I will dig deeper.
The labs in this course were a lot of fun. Deployment Manager and Terraform are two systems that I have been interested in for awhile and it was great actually building (small) things out with them.

The course is completely awesome. You will get your hands dirty on load balancing, management lifecycle. It covers all different types of load balancers. Whether you are novice or experienced in IT, you can easily understand this course. If you want to go in depth of each topic, just go the the links given in resource pdf files. The automation script understanding is explained in very well manner.

Well paced and packaged course that showed all the areas where Automation can be utilized and expanded but also exist so well in the infrastructure of GCP. Even having to take breaks, was able to jump back into the labs and the courses to get acquainted and the labs were so well thought out, with plenty of time to explore and test in a simulated environment!

Great course to get familiar with many services offered on GCP. Automating the deployment process, using managed services to avoid the tiresome process or re-inventing the wheel which in most cases is not needed. Learned about automating the deployment of virtual machines and then setting up load balancing and autoscaling with those.

Learning about the different levels of infrastructure scaling automation was exciting and empowering. Add in the contrasting element of managed services, some of which scale for you (with the best defaults!), I acquired skills that help me compare product offerings and how to best build and improve our infrastructure.

Excellent training on Interconnecting Networks with VPN, creating a Load Balancer from unmanaged Instance Groups, creating HTTP Load Balancers with AutoScaling for managed Instance Groups, Managed Services and the Basics on Deployment Manager, the automation infrastructure tool and deployment services. Thank you!
par Vijaya P R G•
Good, what could have added more value is in addition to the above a primer on how to get key values from terraform documentation in creating .tf files and general direction on how to get these key values when using a deployment manager for creating infrastructure should be made easy.

It has been wonderful journey with Google so far. I have learnt auto scaling , Load balancing (Internal & external) Google Managed services. Each module is comprehensively having Labs, Lab reviews and expert lectures to get the deep knowledge on the subject. Excellent Course !
par Michael M•
The labs provided an excellent opportunity to see scaling and automation in action. It was also enlightening to see what kind of thought was needed to deliver each discrete scaling and automation solution, as well as the powerful productivity provided by deployment-manager.

En este curso aprendimos acerca de la auto escalabilidad en las máquinas virtuales, ademas creamos una conexión cifrada entre nuestras instancias y repasamos varios servicios de red que nos permiten crear verdaderas soluciones escalables de manera automatizada.

The course is a shorter course in the Architecting with GCE specialization focusing on the autoscaling and auto-infrastructure facilities and features available in GCP. It is a great way to learn how to modularize and automate day-to-day GCP operations.

This course is a great starting point to the google cloud platform technologies. Also, the qwiklabs platform is a great place to practice the labs provided in the course. The instructors are well experienced and explained all aspects available in GCP.
par Esteban T•
Este curso esta mas dificil que los anteriores, por que se explican conceptos mas avanzados de VPC y de tuneles, pero con los labs te queda mas claro los conceptos, te aconsejos buscar mas informacion acerca de las VPC en la documentacion de GCP
par Dion P•
As with all of the GCP courses knowledge and understanding is built up with bitesize video chunks which are then validated with labs and quizzes. You really get a feel and confidence for using the console / cloud shell and associated features

This coursera is really amazing course.i really appreaciate your work,this is a great platform for every user. you help me a lot in my difficulties and your team is always ready to help in difficulties .thank you very much coursera team!!
par Antony J•
This was the conclusion of a fantastic mini-series of three courses within the specialization. The highlight of this course for me was the lab on Deployment Manager; it was nice to be introduced to some hands-on cloud programming.

Very easy way to Scaling and Automate the Servers and Application in GCP, If you use physical Servers and Application database in Infra it is become the very big and very large task.
"GCP Makes Scaling and Automation simple"
par Manoj S•
Learned a bit deeper into configuring different network settings like Cloud VPN, interconnection etc, and also auto scaling and various load balancing techniques. Labs were superb to teach all these theories into practice.
par Romildo J P•
This course is Excelent to learn about Scaling en Automation, have a introduction subject, but is very interesting to apply in many situations. But it's necessary a lot of practice to deep understanding on this skill.
par Rutvik B B•
It Was Great Experience To me gain my Knowledge with using this course this course will help me a lot. also because of quicklab practice my knowledge gain more. thank you all mentor and also thanks to coursera.
This course is useful those who are more interested in scaling the infra ,automate the infra ,reuse the services. Personally i like this course very useful and i would like to more deep dive into this section.
par Prithish g•
COURSE WAS GOOD ,CONTAINS ARE GOOD AND LAB TOO.
GOOGLE CLOUD HAS A GOOD INFRASTRUCTURE THAT IS QWIKLABS =superb structure ,awesome sytem and counting points as well.thanks a lot . i got to know lot more !!!
par Deepak K•
It was worthy and really amazing to be the part of this course. Hands on exercise and task made this course really effective and got to know much more about the Big Data Processing tools and techniques
Great intro before getting hands deeper and more dirty on creating solutions. It was not as time consuming as expected, though some of the labs take a little longer to explore all the options
par Leonardo T•
Pretty concise, to the point, hands-on and effective course. The content is comprehensive including not only the GCP tools but also open source tools for achieving the same automation goals.
This has been the most fun course to learn in this series. The amount of relevant material and references in the resources section is just perfect! Thank you Mylene Biddle!! Please do more
