  1. Add domain registration management to google cloud

    It would be great if domains.google were a core product of Google Cloud Platform.
    That way we could administer everything in the same place (and only have one bill), plus everything else that would be simpler administration-wise.

    And in any case, make sure domain registration is available in all markets, which it currently isn't under google.domains.

  3. Support setting a hard maximum spend limit per month

    One of the big pain points and fears for startups is that we cannot set a hard spend limit that allows to mitigate the risk of receiving a huge bill at the end of the month if something goes wrong (e.g. service makes unexpected requests, requests from the internet create a lot of load/traffic etc.). Even with the budget alerts we do not feel comfortable that we won't get a large bill because we cannot react fast enough to shut everything down manually.

    Therefore, we want to be able to set the maximum amount we are willing to spend per…

  4. Relative canary and stable maintenance timing settings for projects at the folder level

    Right now, it is possible to define maintenance windows for some GCP resources like Cloud SQL instances and GKE clusters at the resource level:
    - https://cloud.google.com/sql/docs/mysql/instance-settings#maintenance-window-2ndgen
    - https://cloud.google.com/kubernetes-engine/docs/how-to/maintenance-window

    CloudSQL even allows to define relative maintenance timing settings
    between instances in the same project: https://cloud.google.com/sql/docs/mysql/instance-settings#maintenance-timing-2ndgen

    > The relative timing of updates is not observed between projects; if you have instances with an earlier timing setting in a different project than your instances with a later timing setting, Cloud SQL makes no attempt to update the instances with the earlier timing setting first.

    However, I like to separate staging/pre-production and production environments…

  5. Billing detail by instance, disk, etc

    I have a project with 5 instances. In billing report I can see the total project bill or the total bill for instance type, but not for a specific instance, or specific disk, I'm suggesting to have a detailed billing by instance too (like azure).

    A workaround is to have one project for each instance but it is not good for me.

    Regars,
    Gaston

  6. Ability to add additional external IP addresses via Google Cloud interface to the Compute instance

    Currently, Google VM instance can have only one external IP address.

    It is required in the hosting industry. For example, to add additional dedicated IP for the website.

  7. API for Accessing Daily Budget Information

    Forgive me if this is already a feature, but I've not been able to find it.

    Our Google Cloud application has several non-essential features that can eat through our daily budget. Ideally we would like to disable these features when we reach a certain percentage of the budget. To do this, an API to get an estimate of our daily budget usage would be great.

    The actual number I'm after is the one on the dashboard of the old app engine console where it says "Estimated cost for the last 3 hours $2.00* / $100".

    So far, I've not found…

  8. Use built in Environment Variables by default instead of default Substitution variables for Cloud Build

    Unlike nearly every automated build system, Google Cloud Build does not set environment variables inside of the running build docker containers automatically with the build context information. Instead it has "Substitution Variables" that a developer has to explicitly pass as environment variables. This makes tools that customize information based on the build environment impossible without special configuration to pass the default substitution variables as environment variables to each build step.

    https://cloud.google.com/cloud-build/docs/configuring-builds/substitute-variable-values

    By default the default substitution variables should be available as environment variables in the build containers. Maybe google could provide an option to disable that functionality for extremely sensitive…

  10. Improve Cloud VPN to support on premises gateway behind nat

    Currently it is not possible to connect a Cloud VPN gateway to an on-premises VPN gateway behind a NAT (https://cloud.google.com/vpn/docs/resources/troubleshooting#gateways_behind_nat).
    This is particularly problematic as changing the network topology or changing the HW cannot simply be done on-premises.
    I suggest to support this particular setup to avoid to create a VM with strongswan or similar.
    It's easier to setup, maintain and configure.
    Thanks!

  13. Support PHP (or custom language) in Cloud Functions

    Amazon offer the possibility to use PHP in Lambda by allowing people to custom build an Amazon Linux image.

    Laravel 6 is releasing in a few weeks and offer the possibility to be run in serverless functions. Laravel Vapor will actually only be available on AWS for now. And we currently use GCP at my work, so we can't use Vapor.

    I'm currently studying the difference between Cloud Run and Cloud Function.

  15. 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.

  16. The customer wants to know the usage and charging for every machine type not individual vCPU and memories.

    Since October 1st 2018, most machine types are billed as individual vCPU and memory SKUs. The n1-standard, n1-highmem, and n1-highcpu machine types are billed by the individual vCPU and memory usage in two separate SKUs rather than billing by each machine type.
    We start to receive a lot of complaints from our customers. Would you please change back to bill by machine types?
