I would like to know if its possible to increase the memory of the instance on Google Compute Engine? I am currently running a micro instance (f1-micro) and I would like to move to higher one. Can this result in data lose?

  1. Go to the VM Instances page.
  2. In the Name column, click the name of the instance that you want to change the machine type for.
  3. Click the Stop button to stop the instance, if you have not stopped it yet.
  4. After the instance stops (this may take couple minutes), click the Edit button at the top of the page.

This will require a reboot of VM but will not cause any data lose.
