Billing Alert 突き抜ける
無料利用枠の$300とGCP Nextでもらったクーポンコードあわせて合計 $500あったので、すぐに突き抜けることは無いだろうとは思っていました。
ん？！ $75.40 ？ なんだなんだ？
Cloud Bigtable が 497.052 時間で、$323.08ってクソ高いー
I did not stop 'Cloud Bigtable' instance carelessly. So, as a result, $75.40 was billed. I did start only, I did not use 'Cloud Bigtable' instance. Please cancel this billed.
