    Thanks for the suggestion, this is something we’d certainly like to investigate in the future.

    This isn't supported by any cloud provider that I know of. But still, it would be a really useful feature!

    Thanks for your feedback! We can confirm that snapshots are in fact stored compressed. I have submitted an update to the documentation to note this fact.

    Thanks, we’re always thinking about ways to roll out more security features.

    We’ve just released a feature to GA which allows you to detach and re-attach boot disks to GCE VMs.

    Using this feature, you may now restore a VM from snapshot by:

    1. Stopping the instance – (e.g. gcloud compute instances stop INSTANCE_NAME —zone INSTANCE_ZONE)

    2. Detaching the boot disk from the VM in question ($ gcloud compute instances detach-disk INSTANCE_NAME —disk DISK_NAME —zone INSTANCE_ZONE)

    2. Creating a disk from the snapshot in question

    3. Attaching the disk from step 2 to the VM as the boot disk ($ gcloud compute instances attach-disk INSTANCE_NAME —disk NEW_DISK_NAME —boot —zone INSTANCE_ZONE)

    After restore, the VM will keep its IP address and other properties (e.g. tags, labels, etc.).

    See more info about the feature in the docs:
    https://cloud.google.com/compute/docs/disks/detach-reattach-boot-disk

    Down the road, we’re also planning to improve this flow to be “one-click easy.” More updates to come.

    Hi folks,

    Thanks for the continued input on this item. We are taking a further look at this request, but it is not currently scheduled for implementation (we work in priority order, taking feedback from customers, here, and other sources).
