When I start a instance with gpu on google cloud platform, it shows me the error that You've reached your limit of 0 GPUs NVIDIA K80.

Anyone who can give me some tips about this, thanks in advance.

  • Contact Google support. GPUs cost extra.

The error message “You've reached your limit of 0 GPUs NVIDIA K80” you received is because you tried to create an instance with GPUs, but you don’t have any quota for them.

You can request a quota increase following below steps:

  1. Go to your Google Cloud Console and select your project.
  2. Go to the Quotas page and choose the quota you want to increase.

    • (Optional) You can filter the Metric (in you case, NVIDIA K80 GPUs)
    • (Optional) You can also filter the Region accordingly, make sure the GPUs you choose is in the available zones).

    As of June 2020 the available zones for NVIDIA K80 GPUs are:

    • asia-east1-a
    • asia-east1-b
    • europe-west1-b
    • europe-west1-d
    • us-central1-a
    • us-central1-c
    • us-east1-c
    • us-east1-d
    • us-west1-b
  3. Click Edit Quotas, fill-in the form (your phone number, your request and justification), and click “Submit Request”.

  4. You will receive a response from the Compute Engine team within 24 to 48 hours of your request (often much faster).

Here you have more detailed informations about GPUs on Compute Engine.

  • You often get your request approved much faster than that (within minutes).
