Getting Started

Navigate to https://cloud.google.com/ and press on “Console” in the top right corner. You may be asked to enter you Google account credentials.

Create a project (the below screenshot is in German but it’s the same in English)

Once completed navigate to VM instances on the left hand sidebar navigation panel and select Sign up for free trial.

Note: For European customers the Account Type will be by default set to Business even for personal usage. A VAT number is not required during registration.

After filling out all fields successfully you will be returned to the VM instance screen and welcomed to spend 300$/250€ on gCloud services, for Free.

Take the PBX express

Now take the PBX express to setup and configure your 3CX PBX in your cloud account.

Total time to signup for Gmail and Gcloud is less than 15 minutes

Google is Always Free

Even in paid accounts some VMs and services are free of charge in Google’s always free offer. More Information here: https://cloud.google.com/free/.

Trial Quota Limitations

It has to be noted that the trial account comes with some default quota limitations which can be requested to be increased. Alternatively, you can move away from the trial offer and switch to a paid account. For example the free account can max. 1 static public IP to be configured or up to 8 IPs in total which are called  “ephemeral”. Ephemeral IPs do not change unless the VM is rebooted or stopped. So it’s best to setup the VM in “dynamic public IP mode” to host more than one 3CX instance in a trial account.
