Google Cloud is one of the best cloud services out there, that's why I pick Google Cloud to run the Gala Nodes.

If you do not wish to setup it up yourself, I can setup it up for you at $19.99 USD per node on my server compared to $30.46 USD monthly if you run it yourself. Just discord me @tong#7615.
