GCP Projects hardware

Hi all,

I have a pretty basic question: is each individual project in GCP on separate individual hardware?

Thank you for reading.

No, it’s not. GCP projects are just abstract boundaries for managing resources, in terms of governance. What define the physical boundaries of resources are regions, zones and datacenters in each zone. Even if you have two different resources of the same kind deployed in the same zone, they might end up in two different datacenters of that zone. It’s very rare that two resources are placed the same datacenter, and even in that case it’s very rare that they will end up in the same hardware cluster. GCP design their systems in such a way that resources are distributed as much as possible, with the constraints of regions and zones.
