  1. Instance mirror

    Add possibility to have a mirror of another instance in production at the time that something happens to the instance automatically pass to the other. Among the instances there is a simultaneous data synchronization to meet this need and it's only change the IP if necessary

  4. "Set enable-oslogin in project-wide metadata so that it applies to all of the instances in your project: Go to the Metadata page.

    "Set enable-oslogin in project-wide metadata so that it applies to all of the instances in your project:

    Go to the Metadata page.

    Go to the Metadata page
    Click Edit.
    Add a metadata entry where the key is enable-oslogin and the value is TRUE. Alternatively, set the value to FALSE to disable the feature.
    Click Save to apply the changes.

    "

    There is no edit button. The only button is to add metadata, which takes a key value pair. there is no option to turn on os-logon here

  6. Croned power off of hole proyect

    It would be nice to have the option to power off all the instances in a project.
    Some days ( Saturday and Sunday) it's not necessary to have running some projects so it would be great to have a button or a crone to power off the proyect until is needed again.

  7. gcloud beta compute instances create-with-container multiple network interfaces support

    gcloud beta compute instances create-with-container command should support creation of multiple network interfaces same as plain create command.
    currently it ignores the definition of other --network-interface beyond the first one.

    Hi, we believe this is a bug in gcloud. Similar functionality is possible through the Console UI (website). Our team is aware of the issue, however you may find it more helpful to file a bug in our Public Issue Tracker. To avoid a goose chase, I’m leaving this entry open here for now, but please be aware that UV is mostly for Feature Requests and staffed lightly, unlike the Issue Tracker which is staffed by our support team (and integrated into our internal bug tracking). If you’d like to file an Issue, the GCE tracker 1 please go ahead, and 2 has more information on how to use our Issue Trackers in general. Thx!

  9. Operations page should show scopes (global, regional, or zonal) as a column and/or in details page

    Compute Engine > Operations page should have a column that specifies if the operation is Global, Regional, or Zonal. The API has three distinct methods: globalOperations, regionOperations and zoneOperations. The only way to tell which method the API should be calling is to view the operation details and see it in the URL. There isn't even a field in the details page to specify the scope.

  11. We need to allow users to create Firewalls from a VM.

    You have to leave the page you are on, copy IP addresses, and create a Firewall entry. We have it the backwards way...but I am usually trying to figure out why packets aren't getting to my box. Also, would be nice to provide some information to the customer that would help them debug why connectivity is not happening?

  12. add internal ip ssh support to cloud console

    It would be nice to ssh into an instance that doesn't have an external IP via the cloud console. This is currently supported by gcloud beta (however, it hangs for me), but this is not nearly as user friendly/efficient as sshing via the cloud console.

    This is an important feature as there are quotas for the # of external IPs a project can have in a region. For most of my instances, I don't need external IPs, but I have to have them in order to ssh into them via the cloud console. This forces me to hit the quota…

  14. Make it simple to login for a first time user. I have given up

    Haven't got time to take a weeks course to find out how to log in to one of your VMs
    Much to complicated to get started on this.

  18. Real time plots of the CPU usage available to embed in a web interface.

    I would want to, based on an instance id, get returned a link to / or some embeddable code to put in my own web interface, so my user can watch their instance humming away. (In my example, the user would be watching their container build).

    Interesting idea. This might be a bit beyond what would make sense for us to provide as a core platform capability, but it could definitely be done with something like a collectd agent (for example the version Stackdriver uses) and some downstream tech.

  19. I spent several days to learn how to install docker and run tensor flow in google cloud.

    Even though I spent several days and tried to find out a way to do, still I cannot figure out Udacity Deep Learning class with TensorFlow.
    Instead, I tried to do same thing in AWS. it is difficult but can figure out it finally. There is NO correct (updated) instruction in google cloud.
