Certain Compute Engine resources live in regions or zones. A region is a specific geographical location where you can run your resources. Each region has one or more zones; most regions have three or more zones. For example, the us-central1 region denotes a region in the Central United States that has zones us-central1-a, us-central1-b, us-central1-c, and us-central1-f.

The Cloud Billing Reports page lets you view your Google Cloud Platform (GCP) usage costs at a glance and discover and analyze trends. The Reports page gives you a chart that plots usage costs for all projects linked to a billing account. To help you view the cost trends that are important to you, you can select the data range of interest and configure the chart filter and group by date range, project, product, and SKU.

Some questions that billing reports can help you answer are:

  • How is my current month's GCP spending trending?
  • What project cost the most last month?
  • What GCP product (for example, Compute Engine or Cloud Storage) cost me the most?

The gcloud projects group lets you create and manage IAM policies for projects on the Google Cloud Platform. Resources are organized hierarchically and assigned to a particular project. A Project resource is required to use Google Cloud Platform, and forms the basis for creating, enabling and using all Cloud Platform services, managing APIs, enabling billing, adding and removing collaborators, and managing permissions.

Why are there limits to how many projects I can create?

Quotas protect the Google Cloud Community from unforeseen spikes in usage. However, as your usage of Google Cloud Platform increases, you can request an increase in your quota.

When Google Cloud allocates resources to customers, we consider a variety of factors, including resources that most legitimate customers use, customer’s previous usage and history with Google Cloud, and previous abuse penalties. Customers might have different quota based on these and other factors.

How do I request more projects?

If you attempt to exceed your project limit, the console will prompt you to fill out a request form. This happens when you try to create a project but you have already reached your quota. The form will require you to specify the number of additional projects you need, along with their corresponding email accounts, billing accounts, and intended uses.

Note that you may need to make a payment in order to increase your quota (see below).

Compute Engine– Remember some of Googles VMS are used for different purposes.  Either for an IaaS or PaaS service approach.

Cloud Functions -is geared towards a serverless approach and focused on microservices

App Engine - is focused on PaaS and can be delivered in two different solutions  (Standard or Flexible)

Container Engine (Kubernetes Engine) - Awesome solution for developers wanting a simple and lightweight container.

Note!   A Compute Engine instances can run Linux and Windows Server
