Learn fundamental to advanced GCP architectural techniques using 30 + real-world use cases. The ´Google Cloud Platform an Architect´s Guide´ is a comprehensive handbook that covers everything that you need to know from GCP fundamentals to advanced cloud architecture topics. The book covers what you need to understand to pass the Google certification exams but goes far further and deeper as it explores real-world use cases and business scenarios. But you don´t need to be an IT expert as the book is designed to cater for both beginners and those experienced in other cloud or on other on-premises networks. To that end, the book is split into distinct parts that caters for all levels of expertise. Part -1 is aimed at the novice someone new to a cloud architecture environment that needs to become familiar with the fundamentals of cloud architecture and industry best practices so the more experienced reader may wish to skip this section. Part-2 takes a far deeper dive into GCP theory and practice as well as providing real-world use cases and practical tips that are beneficial for architects at all levels. Part-3 delves much deeper into GCP practical theory on elasticity, scalability and resilience. It also covers Kubernetes in greater detail and touches on High-Performance Computing and IoT designs. The book closes with a final part dealing with cloud-native design practices and as such it covers design, monitoring, notification and remediation techniques to ensure best practice in cloud-native application design, deployment, stabilisation and commissioning.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER USA TODAY BESTSELLER Amazon, Apple, Facebook, and Google are the four most influential companies on the planet. Just about everyone thinks they know how they got there. Just about everyone is wrong. For all that´s been written about the Four over the last two decades, no one has captured their power and staggering success as insightfully as Scott Galloway. Instead of buying the myths these companies broadcast, Galloway asks fundamental questions. How did the Four infiltrate our lives so completely that they´re almost impossible to avoid (or boycott)? Why does the stock market forgive them for sins that would destroy other firms? And as they race to become the world´s first trillion-dollar company, can anyone challenge them? In the same irreverent style that has made him one of the world´s most celebrated business professors, Galloway deconstructs the strategies of the Four that lurk beneath their shiny veneers. He shows how they manipulate the fundamental emotional needs that have driven us since our ancestors lived in caves, at a speed and scope others can´t match. And he reveals how you can apply the lessons of their ascent to your own business or career. Whether you want to compete with them, do business with them, or simply live in the world they dominate, you need to understand the Four.

As robots are increasingly integrated into modern society-on the battlefield and the road, in business, education, and health-Pulitzer-Prize-winning New York Times science writer John Markoff searches for an answer to one of the most important questions of our age: will these machines help us, or will they replace us? In the past decade alone, Google introduced us to driverless cars, Apple debuted a personal assistant that we keep in our pockets, and an Internet of Things connected the smaller tasks of everyday life to the farthest reaches of the internet. There is little doubt that robots are now an integral part of society, and cheap sensors and powerful computers will ensure that, in the coming years, these robots will soon act on their own. This new era offers the promise of immense computing power, but it also reframes a question first raised more than half a century ago, at the birth of the intelligent machine: Will we control these systems, or will they control us? In Machines of Loving Grace, New York Times reporter John Markoff, the first reporter to cover the World Wide Web, offers a sweeping history of the complicated and evolving relationship between humans and computers. Over the recent years, the pace of technological change has accelerated dramatically, reintroducing this difficult ethical quandary with newer and far weightier consequences. As Markoff chronicles the history of automation, from the birth of the artificial intelligence and intelligence augmentation communities in the 1950s, to the modern day brain trusts at Google and Apple in Silicon Valley, and on to the expanding tech corridor between Boston and New York, he traces the different ways developers have addressed this fundamental problem and urges them to carefully consider the consequences of their work. We are on the verge of a technological revolution, Markoff argues, and robots will profoundly transform the way our lives are organized. Developers must now draw a bright line between what is human and what is machine, or risk upsetting the delicate balance between them.
