  1. Cloud CDN should have the option to give back a generic URL instead of needing a Load Balancer that requires us to configure an IP

    Right now Cloud CDN requires the configuration of a Load Balancer, which costs $18 a month. Furthermore, I am given a global IP that I then need to setup on my own subdomain.

    What I want is just a way to put a CDN in front of my bucket. I don't mind using a generic url name such as obfuscatedbucketname.googleapis.com/path/to/my/object

  2. 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?

  4. Partner interconnect, allow to specify custom a IP range for BGP peering

    At present the IP range for BGP peering in a partner interconnect is 169.254.x.x set by Google Cloud. This seems that cannot be customized.These has some problems:


    • I need to do monitoring from the peering device to the VMs in the VPC. This monitoring cannot use the 169.254.x.x address range as source IP that the sockets will use by default.

    • traceroute not working.

    • maybe this list is not exhaustive.

    AWS and Azure do support specify a custom IP range for BGP peering.

  5. Cloud Shell I-Beam Cursor

    Block cursor is hard to work with. Especially when using magnifying on browsers (for example 125%). Please give us option of I-Beam type cursor if it is not hard to implement.

  7. 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.

  12. 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.

  18. Prepay for use on Google Cloud

    One of the fears everyone has is that we'll start learning on GCP and we'll get a bill for $700,000 at home when a bad line of code spawns up 2million nodes on earth and mars.

    I'd like to buy $500 increments in Google Cloud Credits. Then when i hit that limit, you cut me off. This allows to learn safely.

  19. 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#gatewaysbehindnat).
    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!
