    • Allow SMTP to Office 365 (smtp.office365.com) and other providers

      Your blocking of standard SMTP ports seems reasonable until you realize that outgoing e-mail can still be sent through G Suite mail servers and not Office 365 mail servers. My domain e-mail that I want to send mail through (low volume) is hosted at Office 365. I'm not going to move it to G Suite just for one little use. I don't see what, if anything, this has to do with IP reputation since smtp.office365.com requires login information. I was excited to use Google Compute Engine until I discovered this annoying fact. Now I'm going to have to use AWS…

        We are actively evaluating options to improve this. We can’t offer a timeline yet.

        I want to note that the fact that GMail works is actually a “bug.” The disallow for these ports is essentially global, but because of a routing optimization for traffic heading to Google-owned endpoints, GMail addresses end up working (the traffic does not fully egress Google, and doesn’t hit the port restriction). I’m explaining this to address users’ concerns that this is a planned “unfairness.”

        Nonetheless, our intent is to loosen these restrictions in the future, and we’re evaluating the best way to do that now. Thanks to everyone here for your feedback and for your patience!

      • Add GPU option to Instance templates

        Instance templates should not restrict the options that already exist in the "Create an instance" page. This includes the option to attach GPUs to a machine type.

          Hi,

          This is available via gcloud and the REST API, but due to some deployment schedule conflicts, has not been rolled out yet in the cloud console (aka web) UI yet. It’s coming very soon, sorry for the inconvenience. In the meantime, if you need to create a template with them, you could try via gcloud.
