  1. Support Accept-Language in Cloud CDN caching

    Cloud CDN currently does not support Accept-Language nor Vary: Accept-Language for caching. This kills localization for clients where content may actually be translated depending on the language.

    Amazon's CDN supports caching on Accept-Language....pretty big for international use cases.

  3. Cloud Shell support for font and font size

    Please add terminal font resizing to Google Cloud Shell. For those with poor eyesight, and/or on high definition displays, the current 13px font size is too small. On a Mac, I'm also used to Menlo which I find has improved legibility.

  5. Cloud CDN: pricing needs to be more simple

    please make pricing more simple. most consumers do not have any idea about how to gauge cost based on current model, as they have no way to know how much ingress, egress or fill or the number of http request to expect. the last one is certainly the easiest with GA. or at least some comparison/estimations based on other well known sites and what the cost might be for them.

    Thanks for your feedback. The current pricing reflects the actual costs of resources you consume. Many website operators do know these metrics quite well, but we’re always looking at how we can simplify things.

  6. Make services currently belong to "App Engine" available for the total platform (Compute / Container)

    Some services like Search, Email, Memcached, SMS, etc. does not make sense that only can be used from GAE

  7. Show subtotals by project in monthly invoices

    Monthly invoices (sent by email) list a project for each line. It would be even nicer if they listed subtotals for each project.

  8. Provide pictorial representation of all resources and connectivity within a project

    A user build its project by adding multiple VPC, subnets, compute resource, network services and other VMs across various regions. A dashboard which provides an intuitive pictorial representation of the complete project would be very helpful. It could be similar to representations you use across your documentation pages. For eg:
    https://cloud.google.com/router/images/vpn-failover.svg

    The topology may also include below items:
    #### Ip addresses configured on each resources
    #### Vpc peering,VPN tunnels, interconnect etc.

    For larger projects, you may provide both minimal and expandable views.
    Each vpc/subnet/region/resource on the topology should be a clickable item which would display further attributes associated with it.

  14. Add a NLG Service

    Add a NLG service - this service should allow for someone to type a natural language query that goes beyond static sql but allows for inference at the query plan and get back a context-specific result either in form of a table output or a report. Point here is to avoid having to use sql to query the database but instead to use english sentence as a means of query.

  17. UPDATE, INSERT, and DELETE support for Spanner

    Community support already exists in the form of a JDBC driver for translating UPDATE, INSERT, and DELETE statements to spanner read-write transactions. However, that doesn't help for those of us writing in Go or NodeJS.

    First-class support for UPDATE, INSERT, and DELETE statements on the server level would make spanner much easier to program against, and allow the use of more tooling and libraries which can help generate these kinds of statements.

    In addition, support for RETURNING would make client programming of partial updates more easy, instead of requiring that we read, write, apply partial diff to the read object,…

  18. Add atomic increment/decrement operations to Spanner

    (There should be a separate section of this forum for Spanner)

    I'd like Spanner to offer a simple API for atomically incrementing or decrementing a counter. Currently, we have to read a record, increment and write back. Compared to regular SQL `SET x = x + 1`, or DynamoDB which offers an increment operation, this is much more programmer overhead.

    Plus, it allows race conditions where multiple writers are incrementing a column, even given Spanner's external strong consistency, if both read the same value before one writes back an incremented amount. This makes it hard to keep denormalised counts accurate…
