A Company Burnt $72k Testing Firebase + Cloud Run and Almost Went Bankrupt


Sudeep Chauhan wrote a story on how Google charged his company account $72.000 instead of $100 for their Firebase test.

After 5 minutes, the bill read $15,000, in 20 mins, it said $25,000. I wasn’t sure where it would stop. Perhaps it won’t stop?

Their bill kept growing by thousands of dollars in minutes and it didn't appear to be stopping. They almost went bankrupt. It's an interesting read.
