Before you begin

Before you can use Notebooks, you must have a Google Cloud project and enable the Notebooks API for that project.
  1. Sign in to your Google Cloud account. If you're new to Google Cloud, create an account to evaluate how our products perform in real-world scenarios. New customers also get $300 in free credits to run, test, and deploy workloads.
  2. In the Google Cloud Console, on the project selector page, select or create a Google Cloud project.

    Go to project selector

  3. Make sure that billing is enabled for your Cloud project. Learn how to confirm that billing is enabled for your project.

  4. Enable the Notebooks API.

    Enable the API

  5. If you plan to use GPUs with your Notebooks instance, check the quotas page in the Cloud Console to ensure that you have enough GPUs available in your project. If GPUs are not listed on the quotas page, or you require additional GPU quota, you can request a quota increase. See Requesting an increase in quota on the Compute Engine Resource quotas page.
