  2. Increase the grace period for Preemptible VMs

    When using preemptible instances on GKE, 30 second grace period is simply not enough for the workloads to shut down gracefully and often causes service disruptions so I'd love to see this period raised to at least 2 minutes which is a standard on AWS. I believe that would give the machine enough time to gracefully shut down.

  4. Provide alert for upcoming deprecation of VM images

    We've had numerous production outages caused by deprecations of VM images in Compute Engine. Is there any way to get alerted about upcoming deprecations?

  6. Make images available for Debian Buster

    Debian Buster has been officially released but there's no images available for Compute Engine, nor any GCE-specific release notes or documentation on upgrading existing Stretch images. Fix both of those!

  9. Be able to move GKE clusters across Zones

    Currently I'm running into this:

    ```
    Try a different location, or try again later: Google Compute Engine does not have enough resources available to fulfill request: us-west1-a.
    ```

    While it's simple to just relocate to us-west2-b, or c, It's not possible to move the master node of my GKE cluster into us-west1-b (thus rendering me unable to upgrade it). I could, as a workaround, add additional zones to my cluster to spin up new nodes but that would 2x or even 3x my costs.

    Given that alternatives to GKE, such as kops, support this out of the box it's a…

  11. restore disk from snapshot

    doesn't make sense - I want "restore disk snaphost" to "disk" and that show me "create snapshot"

    it's complete inlogical make new disk from "vm / Additional disks / new disk / snapshot" - if so then "attach disk from exist snapshot" - also it not UX userfriendly do that in that not clear long form

    please add button to "restore disk"

  12. recover deleted disks and everything

    it's very simple like for "images"
    https://googlecloudplatform.uservoice.com/forums/302595-compute-engine/suggestions/9966057-recover-deleted-instance

    if I remove or your interface mistaken remove disks because doesn't accept change like now for "keep additional disks" then I lost that data

    I love like with "remove project" that can be "undone"

    it would be great create "trash for everything" and after some time like 1day or 1week will be gone automatically - or I can manually empty it discard that data

  13. sharing snapshots and images across accounts

    it's simple - company can have more accounts to care for client - and has one prepared snaphost

    I don't see a way how can share it for some another users - like "aws" has already

    it's just choose who else can read it - that's all

    Q can you add that ?

  14. start instance on request - sleep on low cpu load

    it would be great somehow start instance if I requested their resources

    for example - I have "plex in cloud" - most of time I don't needed, and time to time I use it - clean time for example 20h of 730h/month

    run and stop machine from shell is too much for non tech people - also not userfriendly and not independed from various client devices

    so would be great allow machine go to some super hybernation wait for "http req" and then "wake it up" - or there would be some process to boot it up --- and after…

  15. rename project id

    if I forgot or mistaken name "project id" I cannot change it - it would be nice to either random generate it or allow rename it - otherwise I have to create new project and "somehow" move all manually to the new project and we all know that "moving" is not easy at all

  17. Add internal IP support to gcloud compute config-ssh

    It would be great if it was possible to set configuration so that `gcloud compute ssh` uses `--internal-ip` by default (which would also mean a CLI option to disable it, i.e. force to use external, is needed).

    Likewise with `gcloud compute config-ssh`, this one currently doesn't support `--internal-ip` at all. Supporting it would make using tools like Ansible much easier.

    Many thanks!

  20. You should tell us what is the pricing for disk image.

    When I am creating the disk image, I am telled I would be priced, when I follow the link to this doc, it is hard to find the section I want, and even no message for how the disk image is priced.

    https://cloud.google.com/compute/pricing?hl=en_GB&_ga=2.134124622.-1554852137.1550303826&_gac=1.57327960.1550305602.CjwKCAiAhp_jBRAxEiwAXbniXQOT-nejMOub1Lb2qh1KAgqRM9uvQflsS221sK0cq63GLz9QfwtIaxoCRgAQAvD_BwE
