About the course

Cloud Run is Google’s fully managed serverless platform that automatically scales stateless containers. It’s the ultimate platform for developer agility, putting containers into production in seconds with minimum hassle and configuration. It’s also open and portable via KNative, giving you the freedom to port workloads seamlessly to Kubernetes clusters in GCP, other clouds, or on premises.

This deep dive will ensure you benefit from all of the features of Cloud Run in the most effective way possible. We’ll cover simple deployments through advanced CI/CD, as well as integrating GCP services, managing traffic patterns, rollouts/rollbacks, and the various options for securing service-to-service or end-user endpoints.

At the end of this course, you will have gained a deep understanding of Cloud Run and have deployed multiple applications in live lab scenarios.
