Google Cloud Pricing "beaware"

 In this short post I wanted to discount pricing for datagrams sent via the Google Cloud platform.

Here's a typical billing for a instance located in EU with underlines for prices for the gigabyte of data sent. You will notice the price computation will vary by what region your data egress to.

The same holds true for storage and vm runtime costs.

So when you using google Cloud, you should factor these items in to your budget and how much for operations costs. Pricing for egress to various parts of the world like China or HongKong could actually cost more than to USA.

You should look at where your endpoints ( clients ) are at and conduct prices for the estimated traffic flow for that area.
