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?
- Go to the VM Instances page.
- In the Name column, click the name of the instance that you want to change the machine type for.
- Click the Stop button to stop the instance, if you have not stopped it yet.
- 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.
