google cloud Stackdriver Metrics to scale an Manage instance group – Regional

What are the Stackdriver Metrics we can use to autoscale Regional Manage instance groups ?
When i check the docs it says
Regional managed instance groups do not support filtering for per-instance metrics.
Regional managed instance groups do not support autoscaling using per-group metrics.

Is that mean I can not use any Stackdriver Metrics other than CPU ?

Google Cloud storage failed at certain files

Exported vmdk disk from google cloud does not work

  1. There is a google cloud. The virtual machine is lifted there.
    I exported VMDK disk locally
  2. I start the disk at home at wmvare player (at windows 10) and virtualboax ( linux manjaro kernel 4.9), it does not work. The black screen does not go on.
  3. turn off virtualization, it works! What could be the problem, is there such an outright thought?

my processor is i7-9750H, other wm’s ubuntu and windows working perfectly.

amazon web services – Basic Understanding of Cloud Hosting (e.g. AWS EC2)

,Hi everybody. At the moment I am looking for a good way to host my MERN Stack application and found that Cloud Hosting via AWS would be a great solution. Before proceeding I wanted to clarify some questions of understanding how Cloud Hosting works.

What I have understood is that Cloud Hosting is based on instances that are running somewhere in the AWS System. In the case that I wanted to increase the performance of my hosted app I could add another instance so that there would be two instances running for my app.

  • When users open my website, how is the traffic split between my two instances? Normally my domain would link to the IP address of one instance, but wouldn’t the other instance be unreachable then?

  • My database would be running on each instance separately, right? How could I make one database used by all other instances?

Thanks in advance! I appreciate any help 😄

How to avoid Cloud Run to scale down to 0. Need My container be available always like AWS Fargate

I have my api deployed in cloud run, It is such an easy service to use without worrying about the infrastructure apart from the fact that i could not see any option to keep my container alive all the time like AWS Fargate. Since i am very new to this service I don’t know whether it is a problem or not. If my container is idle for a while the cloud run shuts it down and the request comes after that will take a hit by cold start latency.So I don’t want my container to scales down to 0. At least one container should be there always.If this is not possible i might need to go with Fargate with load balancer to link my domain which is by the way free in cloud run.

version control – Questions about cloud hosting for a solo dev

So basically I’m shopping around for the right version control software. Whether free/open-source like SVN, or paid like Plastic, I keep seeing references to cloud hosting, which pretty much always requires some kind of extra subscription.

As someone with a non-technical background, I don’t feel like I have a good grasp on whether or not cloud hosting is even something that I would benefit from as a solo developer. What are the pros and cons?

And even if it’s something I do need, is there a “free” way to go about it?

For example, would it be a valid workflow to install SVN for maintaining a local repository on my computer, and then just manually upload my current project version to GitHub periodically to serve as a sort of “offsite backup”?

What infra and skills and budget are actually required for high performing a private cloud ?

I read a few threads on cloud computing and came across a few questions.Currently I am familiar with Google cloud,AWS and digtal ocean.Their products and offering are well performed but a bit pricy to use for all kind of projects.Not until the customer bears all the hosting cost.

My preference is to offer a complete blackbox and all in one solution to customers, where I deliver results and they don’t bother about the backend used.

Of course with time I have moved from shared hosting to VPS and now looking forward to Dedicated and Cloud for hosting my projects.

Can anybody help me in chalking out a generic guidelines for cloud transformation ?

What I am looking for ?

  • Self managed system, already have team that has experience and adapt to new infra.
  • Cost controlled system, do not want to pay from tooth for in/out traffic only without having any direct control.
  • No AWS or Gcloud as their per VM pricing makes my projects un-competetive in short and medium terms.
  • Also my customers have issue with privacy and data protection.
  • Majorly I have to deploy web apps, websites, mobile app backends and ERP’s etc on the cloud.
  • Could also later work on providing a PAAS or IAAS for mobile backend or personal cloud to my clients.
  • Looking for a bleading edge tech stack that keeps my backend infra on the higher end of latest technology tricks and techniques.

As currently I was planning for a managed dedicated server, but it just seems like a Big VPS without much control and cost efficiency.

Here my priorities are total control as well as cost efficiency.

CloudStack or OpenStack looks good to give them a try, but need some experienced opinion for below queries.

  • How many dedicated servers or machines (in terms of computing power/tech spec) do I need to actually use them as cloud hosting ?
  • Any method or checklist to calculate minimum or a range for the total cost for a minimum setup, that performs well and can be scaled ?
  • For actual creating a cloud infrastructure do I have to buy in more than 2-3 locations for latency , back up and other cloud features ?
  • How is the security of such personal cloud is ensured, when the servers are globally distributed and very less direct hardware access and interaction.How to make such cloud more secure, comparable to AWS or Google Cloud.
  • Does in the end this approach can prove to be less cost intensive than using any hybrid cloud infra etc or it is just the opposite ?
  • Are the legacy vps and dedicated servers are tech of the past, although those were easy to manage and predict cost to the last cent ?
  • How are the new hosting providers or application developers modernising their infra ? I mean are those people also in the process of chaning their legacy hosting infra to cloud infra ?

I know a bit of more than one query, Thanks in advance.

google cloud platform – GCP TCP Load Balancer has open UDP port 1900?

on GCP we are using an internet facing TCP Load Balancer in front of our Kubernetes cluster where our application runs. The TCP Load Balancer is configured to forward ports 80 and 443, TCP obviously.

Our security department recently ran a vulnerability scan on our application and apparently detected that UDP port 1900 is open on the Load Balancer IP address. I’m positive that our application behind the Load Balancer does not listen on UDP port 1900, or any UDP port.

Has anybody seen such open UDP ports on internet facing GCP TCP Load Balancers? Is there a reason or explanation for it? Unfortunately I was not able to find any documentation or discussion about this yet and it leaves me quite puzzled. I’d be thankful for any advice.
