By default there is a quota applied on each resource depending on the location and to create a VM Instance with resources which is more than the quota applied then you need to submit a request to increase the quota as required.

Steps to Increase the Quota-

1. Login to GCP Console.

3. Click on IAM & admin click on quotas.

4. Select Quota type, Service, Metric, Location click on EDIT QUOTAS.
Below is an example for extending the quota for CPU for Location US-west-1. You may select metric like CPU, Storage, Memory etc. as per the need.

5. One the pop-up screen, put your Name, Email and Phone and click Next.

6.  Put the required resource size (CPU in our case) and write the quick reason (like-We need to create VM with 100 CPUs) for enhancement then clicks Done.

7. Submit your request.
Note – As per GCP, it may take 72 hours but usually it takes around a day for the enhancement.
