Discussion How to quickly re-launch GCE?

How are you guys handling re-launching GCE? E.g when the credit is low, and you need to deploy to a new trial.

To play with it I set up another VM and tried to run the 'backup' function, but the 2nd GCE could not ingest the file because it didn't have any project initialized. Is there an easy way to do it, or is it completely re-deploying it and then using the respective .inis to over-write the default settings?

When you run low, back it up completely. Once done, use another account to get another gce and restore. I’m on my 3rd account.

Back up the entire CE? That works? Interesting, I'll test it out. Does anything need to be re-deployed?

So he's correct @TeoDaTank. Backup the containers using the backup function. When you redeploy a new GCE, yes, just run the rclone piece again; but from their; restore your containers and you'll be good to go.

So Portainers backup function? Then upload it to GDrive, then restore it from there once you re setup Blitz?
