Support IPV61,487 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.

Hey all – we’re excited to announce the public beta for renaming a VM. You can try it out by running:
$ gcloud beta compute instances set-name CURRENT_NAME —zone=ZONE —new-name=NEW_NAME
For this first version, you’ll need to stop the VM before you rename it.
More details at the docs here: https://cloud.google.com/compute/docs/instances/rename-instance
As always, feedback welcome. We’re working on GA’ing this feature soon, which will include adding support in the Developer Console UI.
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.540 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).
Hello all, we’re happy to announce that DDoS protection is a feature of our Cloud Armor product, which is currently in Beta. Please check it out here:

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
