They will probably be signing up because of DataProc, the splitting of storage and compute for Hadoop in GCP means you can spin up Hadoop clusters with hundreds of nodes in about 90 seconds and tear them down after the Hadoop job has completed, so you only pay for the time the clusters are actually active. Will be a lot more efficient than running 20,000 instances all the time.
