What changes should I expect to see in my Google Cloud Console?
You should expect to see:
Commitment scope set to Billing account
Projects with 3-year committed use discounts and names like doitintl-fs-xxxxxxx attached to your billing account
The commitments will apply committed use discounts across all eligible usage (all projects) associated with this billing account when enabling the billing account scope.
How soon after enabling Flexsave should I expect to see the savings?
You should expect to see savings within 72 hours.
Why isn't the Savings showing up?
The Savings show with a three-day delay. At the beginning of a new month, the Savings will show on the 4th day of the month.
Can I use Flexsave if I already use CUDs or Sustained Use Discounts (SUDs)?
Absolutely. Flexsave works exclusively with your on-demand compute usage and excludes anything already covered by an existing discount.
Any resources that do not qualify for committed use discounts automatically qualify for sustained use discounts. You can't combine committed use discounts and sustained use discounts for the same resources.
Can I use Flexsave with Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE)?
