vCPU limit in Google Cloud
Lab 1 requires a VM with 40 vCPUs. However, the limit in the Google Cloud US-Central1 zone is 24 vCPUs. I've requested an upgrade from Google cloud but the request was denied. I'm attempting the lab with a 24 vCPU VM but not sure if/when it'll crap out.
Anyone have any luck with this or other suggestions?
