Google restricts their Free subscription with certain quotas, for example, there's a limited number of external IPs per Project. However, itopia deploys a minimum of 2 servers with the basic settings. You can get around the restriction upgrading your account in Google. Upgrading will not affect your $300 credit nor it will add any additional charge. You will simply get billed accordingly after spending the 300$ credit in GCP. You can learn more in the Google document.
To upgrade your account and get higher quota, go to Google Cloud Platform --> Main Menu (top left corner) --> IAM & Admin --> Quotas --> Upgrade
When the process was done successfully, you will receive a confirmation email:
Done! You can login to itopia and Create your first Deployment !
