Welcome to the Lab Guide for our Deploying Containerized Applications on Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE) lab. This article addresses challenges a student may encounter while deploying an Application from the Marketplace. For issues regarding connecting via SSH during this lab, see our help desk article on that here.
In this lab you will learn different ways to deploy applications and manage a GKE cluster. You will first deploy a single-container game application followed by a multi-container application (WordPress) provided by the Google Cloud Platform Marketplace. Along the way, you will learn about the architecture of GKE clusters, how to connect to GKE clusters using the popular Kubernetes command line tool kubectl, and understand some of the ways that GKE integrates with other Google Cloud services.
Here are the steps you can take to successfully deploy an application from the marketplace.
