Google Cloud Platform oversold!

After 150days, of using VPS on Google Cloud Platform, im getting this error

Starting VM instance "instance-2" failed. Error: The zone 'projects/semiotic-abbey-279719/zones/europe-west3-c' does not have enough resources available to fulfill the request. Try a different zone, or try again later.

I mention i got 300$ credit, im still in these money. But its expensive anyway.

Seems Google has no shared resource left :smiley:

    Lol, people are busy with getting 300$ for every new Gcloud account. :3

  • deankdeank Member, Troll

    Free stuff.

    Still complains anyway.

    There are two things that make Earth spin: Money and PMS.

  • You get this on cloud providers every now and then.

  • jarjar Provider

    Oh no.

    Anyway...

    MagicSpam blackmails providers into buying their software, and ServerHub is a professional spam organization.

    have you tried to contact Google help desk? as Google cloud is above of $7 /month, so no google representatives on LET

  • That's how it works and that's why you have multiple availability zones.

    Also, if you tried to start a preemptible instance, they have the rights to don't have spare capacity for this type of instance.

    If you need capacity in a particular moment, you should enable a reservation to have guaranteed instances when you need them.

  • so one zone in one region is out once. Only over60 other zones and regions to choose from. Im sure google has more resources than all let providers combined and instantly available. Drama fail for @op

    Nothing profound to say, so I'm on LET.

  • Oversold is when you sell more than what you have. Google is not doing that. They are simply working at 100% capacity. Which is the best possible scenario of every provider.

  • Overselling would be if they would be out of resources and you still got your VPS created. So no.

  • after 12 hrs, still no fix. Resources on that server is out.. Cant open live ticket, is not available for this moment.

  • :lol: i'm wrong

    don't forget to click Thanks

    @Edward_S That's interesting. Do you have any data/sources or is it just a feeling that was expressed somewhere else? Maybe a comparison in 2020 to Azure, Oracle, or AWS? Also what configurations are you looking at to make that statement?

    Nothing profound to say, so I'm on LET.

    I'm also interested about this

    For example AWS have base iops burst up to 3000 iops, and after that, the IO will be hardly limited, and I don't think I read something like this on GCP

    The support is available for paid customers at normal providers as hosting companies are not charity!

    Nice, great logic! Do u really expect services will appear this or similar notification (not have enough resources available) when is node oversold? BTW: Also find other coupon for any free credit and then continue to complain, how they harm you. :+1:

    Sure, at all, i do not prefer Google hosting ever (imo here are a lot better services for partially price, regularly), also hate their quite arrogant monopoly and doing, but do not think that they need oversold at their incomes and gains..

    Just search engine (and last period also utube began). edit results/suppress or block sites that are inconvenient" or have "incorrect opinions" (how richest people in the background wish)
    (Although it is impossible to overtake china's 1984 in this, there were also the wildest ideas of visionary mr. Orwell, many times surpassed)

    YouTube is probably second most profitable thing google does beside search.
    Most video hosting sites barely make profit which can be seen by the number of ads they place on each page wait YouTube had and probably has a lot of ads . Maybe it's not profitable.. but i am still not turning my ad-blocker off...

    Is Youtube actually making any money for Google now? A while back they were running it at a huge loss but that was a few years ago. Havent bothered to read up on it anymore.

    Yup YouTube is more profitable than cloud and anything else other than search and advertising.

    According to 2019 Q4 report YouTube made 11 billion.

    Google don't even have to pay for Transit as they connect to most networks directly and then their ad revenue is massive so they have a huge monopoly.

  • Only solved by creating a snapshot and used that for making another instance..
    PS: I dont complain, i want my data back. Free or paid, doesnt matter, they would be the same. Isnt the first time providers have problem with HDDs..

    If u have important data, based on this mistake/failure u should do backups, backups, backups, as possible (from now). I know this will not help resolve your issue when already data are away and u do not have backup, but is good , good remember it for future
    (i am also moron and in past lost several time data at HW failures, when "was no time for backups..")

    Being highly profitable is not a monopoly.

    Apple, for example, is not a monopoly - there is a ton of competition from Android manufacturers.

    Amazon is not a monopoly - there is a ton of competition from Walmart and many others.

    etc.

    Are you using a flip phone or something? Do you pay for data by the character?
