More cost control options at the Terra application level

Post author

The currently existing article on "How to set up and use GCP budget alerts" is great for setting up the GCP native ability for cost control. However the article does point out a few limitations, notably that "There is a delay of up to a few days between incurring costs and receiving budget notifications" and that budgets are set at per workspace level (instead of at a billing project level).

I think there is an opportunity to set up cost controls at the Terra level that doesn't require any cloud integration. It'd be nice if a billing project could (for example):

- disable workflows

- have a setting for max concurrent workflows

- Limit the size of cloud environment VMs
