Flexsave for GCP
A fundamentally new way to save money on your Google Cloud workloads without making long-term commitments
Flexsave is your cloud co-pilot, dynamically maximizing your cloud-compute discounts for Google Compute Platform (GCP) without any of the risks or limitations of long-term use commitments.
In most cases, save the equivalent of a 1-year commitment discount on your cloud-compute spend with on-demand access to DoiT International's wholesale inventory of GCP Committed Use Discounts (CUDs).

Capabilities

Supported regions and machine types

Flexsave supports all GCP regions and machine types supported by resource-based CUDs (except for GPU accelerators, i.e., A2 instances). We don't support commitments for GPUs or SSDs.

FAQs

These frequently asked questions (FAQs) apply to Flexsave for GCP.
For platform-agnostic information, see:

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)?

Flexsave can provide CUD discounts for GKE nodes that use the Google Compute Engine (GCE) pricing model. However, we cannot provide CUD discounts for GKE Autopilot Mode.

I have a special pricing plan on my GCP account. Can I still use Flexsave, and will it impact my existing savings?

Flexsave can still work with your account and will provide savings in addition to the discounts from your pricing plan.
