Whenever you work with cloud services, it's important to be aware of the costs you're incurring. In this video, run through some tips for minimizing cost as you work through this course.
- [Instructor] In this course, we're going to be working with a number of sophisticated application deployment scenarios. If you are replicating these for the purpose of studying, I have a couple of recommendations so you can keep costs low. Ideally, you would set up a dedicated account using a unique email address so you could use the free tier, which is $300 in GCP service credit. If that's not available to you and you're working within your organization, I recommend strongly that you create a separate GCP project just for the purposes of studying. And this is really important because you don't want to have any runaway costs. In your environment, I suggest that you turn on billing alerts and you set it to a really low number, like 50 to $100 US. This has helped me several times when I've forgotten to turn off an expensive service, such as Google Data Proc or one of the other database-based services. Speaking of turn it off, it's really important when you're done studying or trying out an application architecture that you turn it off and delete it so that you don't get any surprise service account charges on your bill for studying.
