Is there a way to choose between GCP and AWS?


We have several Projects created earlier 2020 and those are running just fine. But we have created a couple of projects in October 2021 using the exact same config.yml and docker files, but those are failing with IP problems and also some permissions errors.

I SSH into those machines and saw that the diff is that the one working is

Linux default-e465f48b-4e39-4aff-a2e4-1d720decf9cf 4.15.0-1027-gcp #28~16.04.1-Ubuntu SMP Fri Jan 18 10:10:51 UTC 2019 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

and the new one, the one failing is:

Linux ip-172-28-3-36 5.8.0-1041-aws #43~20.04.1-Ubuntu SMP Thu Jul 15 11:07:29 UTC 2021 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

So, I am wondering if there is any configuration to choose between GCP and AWS?


Hi @oarriet ,

Sorry to hear you are running into this issue. Currently there is no way to configure a job to run on GCP or AWS.

If possible, could you submit a support ticket at or email us at including a link to this post? Then we can take a deeper look into your projects.

Thank you!

I’ve also been noticing a difference between AWS and GCP. For me, I switched from a docker executor to a machine executor using ubuntu-2004:202111-02 and saw build times increase two fold. I can see this in our logs:
OS name: "linux", version: "5.4.0-1021-**gcp**", arch: "amd64", family: "unix"

Now when I switch to using a more recent executor: ubuntu-2004:current, build times come back down, and I see this in the logs:
OS name: "linux", version: "5.11.0-1028-aws", arch: "amd64", family: "unix"

Are the resources different between the two in some way that would explain the difference in build times?
