Section 1: Designing highly scalable, available, and reliable cloud-native applications

Designing high-performing applications and APIs. Considerations include:

  • Scaling velocity characteristics/trade-offs of IaaS (infrastructure as a service) vs. CaaS (container as a service) vs. PaaS (platform as a service)

  • Geographic distribution of Google Cloud services (e.g., latency, regional services, zonal services)

  • Defining a key structure for high-write applications using Cloud Storage, Cloud Bigtable, Cloud Spanner, or Cloud SQL

  • User session management

  • Caching solutions

  • Deploying and securing API services

  • Loosely coupled asynchronous applications (e.g., Apache Kafka, Pub/Sub)

  • Graceful shutdown on platform termination

  • Google-recommended practices and documentation

Designing secure applications. Considerations include:

  • Implementing requirements that are relevant for applicable regulations (e.g., data wipeout)

  • Security mechanisms that protect services and resources

  • Security mechanisms that secure/scan application binaries and manifests

  • Storing and rotating application secrets and keys (e.g., Cloud KMS, HashiCorp Vault)

  • Authenticating to Google services (e.g., application default credentials, JSON Web Token (JWT), OAuth 2.0)

  • IAM roles for users/groups/service accounts

  • Securing service-to-service communications (e.g., service mesh, Kubernetes Network Policies, and Kubernetes namespaces)

  • Running services with least privileged access (e.g., Workload Identity)

  • Certificate-based authentication (e.g., SSL, mTLS)

  • Google-recommended practices and documentation

Managing application data. Considerations include:

  • Defining database schemas for Google-managed databases (e.g., Firestore, Cloud Spanner, Cloud Bigtable, Cloud SQL)

  • Choosing data storage options based on use case considerations, such as:

    • Time-limited access to objects

    • Data retention requirements

    • Structured vs. unstructured data

    • Strong vs. eventual consistency

    • Data volume

    • Frequency of data access in Cloud Storage

  • Google-recommended practices and documentation

Application modernization. Considerations include:

  • Using managed services

  • Refactoring a monolith to microservices

  • Designing stateless, horizontally scalable services

  • Google-recommended practices and documentation


Section 2: Building and testing applications

Setting up your local development environment. Considerations include:

  • Emulating Google Cloud services for local application development

  • Creating Google Cloud projects

  • Using the command-line interface (CLI), Google Cloud Console, and Cloud Shell tools

  • Using developer tooling (e.g., Cloud Code, Skaffold)

Writing efficient code. Considerations include:

  • Algorithm design

  • Modern application patterns

  • Software development methodologies

  • Debugging and profiling code

Testing. Considerations include:

  • Unit testing

  • Integration testing

  • Performance testing

  • Load testing

Building. Considerations include:

  • Source control management

  • Creating secure container images from code

  • Developing a continuous integration pipeline using services (e.g., Cloud Build, Container Registry) that construct deployment artifacts

  • Reviewing and improving continuous integration pipeline efficiency

Section 3: Deploying applications

Recommend appropriate deployment strategies using the appropriate tools (e.g., Cloud Build, Spinnaker, Tekton, Anthos Configuration Manager) for the target compute environment (e.g., Compute Engine, Google Kubernetes Engine). Considerations include:

  • Blue/green deployments

  • Traffic-splitting deployments

  • Rolling deployments

  • Canary deployments

Deploying applications and services on Compute Engine. Considerations include:

  • Installing an application into a virtual machine (VM)

  • Managing service accounts for VMs

  • Bootstrapping applications

  • Exporting application logs and metrics

  • Managing Compute Engine VM images and binaries

Deploying applications and services to Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE). Considerations include:

  • Deploying a containerized application to GKE

  • Managing Kubernetes RBAC and Google Cloud IAM relationships

  • Configuring Kubernetes namespaces

  • Defining workload specifications (e.g., resource requirements)

  • Building a container image using Cloud Build

  • Configuring application accessibility to user traffic and other services

  • Managing container life cycle

  • Define Kubernetes resources and configurations

Deploying a Cloud Function. Considerations include:

  • Cloud Functions that are triggered via an event from Google Cloud services (e.g., Pub/Sub, Cloud Storage objects)

  • Cloud Functions that are invoked via HTTP

  • Securing Cloud Functions

Using service accounts. Considerations include:

  • Creating a service account according to the principle of least privilege

  • Downloading and using a service account private key file


Section 4: Integrating Google Cloud services

Integrating an application with data and storage services. Considerations include:

  • Read/write data to/from various databases (e.g., SQL)

  • Connecting to a data store (e.g., Cloud SQL, Cloud Spanner, Firestore, Cloud Bigtable)

  • Writing an application that publishes/consumes data asynchronously (e.g., from Pub/Sub)

  • Storing and retrieving objects from Cloud Storage

Integrating an application with compute services. Considerations include:

  • Implementing service discovery in GKE and Compute Engine

  • Reading instance metadata to obtain application configuration

  • Authenticating users by using OAuth2.0 Web Flow and Identity-Aware Proxy

  • Authenticating to Cloud APIs with Workload Identity

Integrating Cloud APIs with applications. Considerations include:

  • Enabling a Cloud API

  • Making API calls using supported options (e.g., Cloud Client Library, REST API or gRPC, APIs Explorer) taking into consideration:

    • Batching requests

    • Restricting return data

    • Paginating results
