Check out the cloud debugger for GCE!
 
Suppose you have a Java app running on a bunch of autoscaled VMs, and you need to debug a rare bug. Manually ssh into each instance, restart the process under gdb, set watchpoints on all of them, sigh....no longer needed. On GCP, just use the cloud debugger, set a breakpoint, and the first time any of your VMs hits that line you get a snapshot with all local variables, stack trace, etc. Problem solved.

Start Stop for the win!
 
Available now in Beta, Google Compute Engine customers can now stop VMs and restart them again later! Whether you are new to Google Compute Engine and deploying your first VM, or if you are an advanced user with a bunch of VMs running different images, packages, and/or configs, you can now simply stop your VM(s) and keep them around to start again later, saving money and avoiding the hassle of having to keep track of root PDs or delete and recreate/reinstall the VM(s) you need.  You can read more about Stop/Start here: http://goo.gl/UZNbTA
