Hi, I'm Hansel Miranda, a course developer at Google. I'd like to welcome you to Managing Google Cloud's Apigee API platform for Hybrid Cloud. This is a series of three courses that teach you the concepts and skills required to install and manage the Apigee Hybrid API management platform. In the first course, we discuss fundamental concepts, the hybrid architecture, and you learn how to install the Apigee hybrid platform. In the second course, you'll learn how to manage the platform and about the practices used to secure the hybrid runtime components. The third course teaches you about upgrading, monitoring, and troubleshooting Apigee hybrid. These courses are intended for cloud architects and operations specialists who want to install, manage, and operate the Apigee API platform, using the hybrid deployment model. You must be familiar with Linux commands and have a basic understanding of Google Cloud, Kubernetes Engine, and networking, as well as common web protocols and standards like REST and HTTP. Through presentations, demos, and hands-on labs, you will learn how to install and operate the Apigee hybrid platform on Google Cloud. The course will cover the architecture, the installation process, and the techniques used to manage and monitor the Hybrid runtime platform. Specifically, you will learn about the product fundamentals, the Apigee hybrid architecture, and how to install and operate Apigee hybrid. You will learn about API proxy Deployment and Environment Management, how hybrid components are secured, and capacity planning and scaling the hybrid platform. You will also learn how to upgrade Apigee hybrid and how to use hybrid logging and monitoring to troubleshoot issues with the platform. All the labs in this course, will be done using Qwiklabs. Qwiklabs provisions you would Google account credentials, so you can access the Google Cloud Console for each lab at no cost. For each lab, Qwiklabs offers a free set of resources for a fixed amount of time and a clean environment with required permissions. This course provides you with the knowledge and skills needed to install and manage Apigee hybrid. Take time to understand the concepts introduced in the lectures and the techniques used in the labs. The lectures together with the labs, teach you how to install, manage, and perform common operational tasks like scaling, monitoring, and troubleshooting Apigee hybrid. We hope you enjoy the course.
