It is very useful article for us. But due to some technical issues I was not able to login into GCP. I think it is temporary problem.
Hello Shiju, that sounds strange, what happened? Do you have a Google account?
You are right, I also felt strange during the errors inside GCP. For Indian customers, I think the issue with the bank card. The payment is stuck and not able to verify my account. And many users are complained over Google forums and then I have moved to AWS at that time. I don't know GCP cleared the issue or not. I am happy with AWS anyway
The most important is that you found a working solution! Glad to hear that.
