There is also an option to control maximum number of projects that regular users will be able to create. The User Projects Limit is controlled on a per-user basis and affects only non-admin users.

Resource Quota settings provide an easy way to control the size of machines used to create user clusters. The administrator can also control if selection of instances with GPU should be possible. Every node size that does not match the specified criteria will be filtered out and not displayed to the user.
