  • Compute Engine
  • App Engine

Q2. True or false: Google keeps Kubernetes Engine refreshed with successive versions of Kubernetes

  • True
  • False

Containers, Kubernetes, and Kubernetes Engine

Q1. Identify two reasons for deploying applications using containers. (Choose 2 responses.)

  • Consistency across development, testing, production environments
  • No need to allocate resources in which to run containers
  • Tight coupling between applications and operating systems
  • Simpler to migrate workloads

Q2. True or False: Kubernetes allows you to manage container clusters in multiple cloud providers.

  • True

  • Yes; the GCP-provided tool is an option, but customers may choose not use it.
  • No; all customers use the ordinary docker command.
  • Yes. Kubernetes Engine customers must use the GCP-provided tool.

Q6) Where do your Kubernetes Engine workloads run?

  • In clusters implemented using App Engine
  • In clusters built from Compute Engine virtual machines
  • In clusters that are built into GCP, not separately manageable
  • In clusters implemented using Cloud Functions
