VM Migration

6 hours Intermediate universal_currency_alt 17 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.
