Cloud Architecture: Core Concepts

This course will help in understanding microservices architecture and how to build it using SpringBoot, Spring Cloud components, Docker, and Kubernetes. By the end of this course, students will understand all the below topics,

  1. What is microservices architecture and how it is different from monolithic and SOA architectures
  2. How to build production-ready microservices using  Spring, SpringBoot, and Spring Cloud
  3. What are cloud-native apps & the 12-factor principles behind them
  4. Configuration management in microservices using Spring Cloud Config Server
  5. Service Discovery and Registration pattern inside microservices and how to implement using Spring Eureka server
  6. Building resilient microservices using RESILIENCE4J framework
  7. Handling Cross-cutting concerns and routing inside microservices using Spring Cloud Gateway
  8. Implementing Distributed tracing & Log aggregation in microservices using Spring Sleuth and Zipkin
  9. Monitoring microservices using Prometheus and Grafana
  10. Role of Docker in microservices and how to build docker images, containers
  11. Role of Docker compose and how to use it to run all the microservices inside an application
  12. Most commonly used Docker commands
  13. Role of Kubernetes in microservices as a container orchestration framework.
  14. How to set up a Kubernetes cluster inside GCP using GKE (Google Kubernetes Engine) and deploy microservices inside it
  15. Most commonly used Kubernetes commands

The pre-requisite for the course is basic knowledge of Java, Spring, and an interest to learn.
