 Thanks for this report. It is full of good useful information. However, is there any reason Google Compute Engine isn't included?

Hi Rodney.  Glad you like the report! 
We did try to get Google Compute Engine in the guide, but we didn't have enough information about them to include them in this release.  Hopefully we will by the time we do our next update for the Cloud Report.
