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
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.
