Support IPV61,147 votes
UPDATE: IPv6 load balancer endpoints are now GA.1 However, we continue to work on instance-level v6 addressing. Since I believe that at least some votes on this issue are for v6 all the way to the instance, I am leaving this issue open.
Add the ability to create automatic backup schedules, much like Rackspace and others, for persistent disks. Currently the only way we have to do something like this is to run a cron task from an instance with gcloud commands. Preferably, we'd be able to take snapshots on regular intervals from a simple admin interface instead. Bonus points for adding rolling last n backup capability, like - last three hours, last three days, last three weeks, last three months.670 votes
I’m excited to announce a new capability for GCE, scheduled snapshots for persistent disks, is now available in beta. To learn more about how to use this new functionality, please visit the announcement page (https://cloud.google.com/blog/products/compute/introducing-scheduled-snapshots-for-compute-engine-persistent-disk).
Being able to change access scopes on an already launched instance should already be possible. It is a little ridiculous to have to disable boot disk deletion, delete the instance, and start a new instance (making sure all the other configuration is the same) just to change access scopes to use a feature you had not considered when first creating the instance. This is something that is very easy to do in AWS using IAM roles/instance profiles.506 votes
Hello all, I’m happy to announce that you can now change the service account or access scopes on a stopped VM. This feature is available to all users via a beta command, as documented at https://cloud.google.com/compute/docs/access/create-enable-service-accounts-for-instances#changeserviceaccountandscopes
Thanks for your patience while we completed deploying this feature.
Note, we are still planning to add the ability to change scopes on a running VM in a future update (it’s at the very top of our list, we know it is a highly requested feature).

Instance-templates - define additional disk to be created and attached on instance create41 votes
Update: the UI for this feature is currently under development, and should be released in the near future. Our deployment process makes an exact prediction difficult, but I wanted to provide an update on this since it has been a while.
Today we can't see a historic data of the number of instances we had in a specific instance group.
I think a graph with the number of instances can be very useful9 votes
Autoscaler charts are now available in Beta. Please refer to:
On the instance group page in the cloud console, it would be great to have the instance template as a "column" option in the instance list.1 vote
This is now live in the cloud console
