Update and Scale Out a Containerized Application on a Kubernetes Cluster


Google Cloud Self-Paced Labs


For this Challenge Lab you must complete a series of tasks within a limited time period. Instead of following step-by-step instructions, you'll be given a scenario and task - you figure out how to to complete it on your own! An automated scoring system (shown on this page) will provide feedback on whether you have completed your tasks correctly.

To score 100% you must complete all tasks within the time period!

When you take a Challenge Lab, you will not be taught GCP concepts. You'll need to use your advanced Google Compute Engine (GCE) skills to assess how to build the solution to the challenge presented. This lab is only recommended for students who have GCE skills. Are you up for the challenge?

Topics tested

  • Update a docker application and push a new version to a container repository.

  • Deploy the updated application version to a Kubernetes cluster.

  • Scale out the application so that it is running 2 replicas.
