  1. Web interface do not refresh while navigating

    The web interface should periodically refresh vm instances and other object. When I use tools for CM like vagrant and gcloud I must hit f5 key to see the effect. Without it list of objects do not change at all

  3. Customized shortcuts on Dashboard

    If I need to open my SSH of any instance I need 3 to 4 hops to reach there. We need to have option to create shortcuts( like right click> place this object on Dash board) for objects which can be placed on Dashboard. This will enable quick access to any instance or particular task

  4. Be more verbose regarding quotas, and why are they so small?

    Our organization (Magine TV) started using GCP for stress testing purposes. We would like to run something like 50 to 100 instances of servers, which would bombard our backend. Because of the quotas, GCP doesn't seem to fit this use case. Your platform should tell clearly what the quotas are, and why they are set as they are, and maybe even point to right direction if it is possible to increase them.

  7. Keep consistent naming on VM's NAT resources.

    Some VMs go up with "external-nat", others with "External NAT", making scripting a living hell and causing problems with VM cicling in a single static IP.

  8. Option to launch VMs without persistent boot volume

    In some cases we don't need persistent storage for the boot disk, i.e. writes don't have to replicated outside the VM. For VMs that are disposable, we don't ever need to do a backup of the VM main boot disk. It should allow faster data writes and reduce network bandwidth usage.
