Look inside

In this liveProject, you’ll expand the cross-cloud deployment of a SaaS service to Google Cloud Platform. You’ll make use of the Anthos Service Mesh to unite services running on the Kubernetes platform of multiple cloud providers and set up GitOps using ArgoCD for tenant onboarding into GCP. Finally, you’ll use Chaos and Resilience testing to ensure that the tenant applications across both GCP and AWS are robust.

This project is designed for learning purposes and is not a complete, production-ready application or solution.
