This is a Canonical Question about a temporary shortage of available resources in Google Cloud services.

I'm a Brazilian user of Google Cloud's Compute Engine for a while and I managed to use it fine for quite some months. Unfortunately, in the last one month or so, I've been facing difficulties starting my instances (around 9 AM) due to the problem "the zone does not have enough resources available to fulfill the request".

At the start, it happened once or twice and then I was able to start my instance. But now it's almost impossible to start it even after dozens of attempts! Following the message's suggestion, I tried to create other instances in southamerica-east1-a nd c (mine was in b) only to find out the same problem happening there. The impression I get from this is that Google has saturated their physical capacities in South America and are doing nothing to increase it.

So what can I do about it? I can't move my server to the USA or something because it's ping sensitive (stock market applications) and, as someone still using the free trial period, I certainly won't start paying for GC if Google may handle me a product I can't use and will take weeks or months to fix.

Firstly, Our apologies that you’re experiencing this issue. Be assured that the team is working hard to resolve it.

Our goal is to make sure that there are available resources in all zones. This type of issue is rare. When a situation like this occurs, or is about to occur, our team is notified immediately and the issue is investigated.

I understand you can't move your server to the USA zone or somewhere. However, deploying and balancing your workload across multiple zones or regions to reduce the likelihood of an outage.

Please review our documentation which outlines how to build resilient and scalable architectures on Google Cloud Platform.
