Today I came in contact with a post writing about the Google App Engine.
"[...]Google App Engine is designed for developers who want to run their entire application stack, soup to nuts, on Google resources.[...]"
- Write code once and deploy
Developers write the code, and Google App Engine takes care of the rest
- Absorb spikes in traffic
Automatic replication and load balancing with Google App Engine
- Easily integrate with other Google services
Using built-in components provided by Google
"The service is completely free during the beta period, but there are ceilings on usage. Applications cannot use more than 500 MB of total storage, 200 million megacycles/day CPU time, and 10 GB bandwidth (both ways) per day. We’re told this equates to about 5M pageviews/mo for the typical web app. After the beta period, those ceilings will be removed, but developers will need to pay for any overage. Google has not yet set pricing for the service."At present applications must be written in Python, because Googles infrastructure is based on it.
