Starting VM instance "xxx" failed. Error: The zone 'xxxxxxxxxxx/zones/europe-west2-c' does not have enough resources available to fulfill the request. Try a different zone, or try again later.

it has been like this everyday since Friday 22/1/2021. Can anyone help? Thank you very much!


You could deploy and balance your workload across multiple zones and regions to reduce the likelihood of an outage and have access to multiple resource pools when you need to expand quickly. Please review this documentation which outlines how to build resilient and scalable architectures on Google Cloud Platform.

You are able to create a reservation with Committed use discounts to reserve Compute Engine zonal resources, to ensure resources are available for your workloads when you need them. There are limitations and restrictions you have to know before you create it. You also can file a public issue tracker to see if there's an outage versus a regular stockout.
