Account upgrade at Google Cloud Platform


How can I know my account is still in free-trial or upgraded?
I can't setup GPU instance and always have "Quota 'GPUS_ALL_REGIONS' exceeded. Limit: 0.0 globally." error. I need to upgrade my account.

But I can't find Upgrade button or Free-Trial status button as discussed in the link.

Best Solution

As per the documentation, you must go to the top of the page and click the upgrade button:

You can upgrade from the free trial to a paid account through the Google Cloud Platform Console. Click the Upgrade button at the top of the page. If you do not see Upgrade, click Free trial status Free trial status icon in the upper-right of the page and Upgrade will appear.

You must be a Billing Administrator on the account to make this change.

Also @StéphaneFréchette shared another question in which the steps needed in order to increase the GPU Quota for GPUS_ALL_REGIONS. The steps needed are:

  • Navigate to Quotas inside the IAM menu

  • In filter type, select metric to be GPUs(all regions) and select Location as Global

  • Click edit quotas and new quota limit to 1 or more
