Google launched the Google App Engine

Google launched the Google App Engine Google didn’t just talk about app hosting. Today they launched a beta version of the service Google App Engine , an ambitious project, allowing developers to build scalable Web applications. The platform is built on BigTable And GFS.
At first glance, it is a copy of their competitor Amazon Web Services with a set of web services offered by Amazon Web Services ( S3, EC2, SimpleDB ). But unlike AWS, which consists of independent services that can then be linked together by developers (by the way, yesterday Amazon was in down ), Google’s architecture is more centralized, but therefore less flexible. ( For example, at Amazon you can use your data on S3, independent of any other services, whereas at Google, using the BigTable service you need to write a Pythonscript for your application servers to host, which will create access to the web interface.)
Developers only need to upload their Python code, and run the application, and then monitor the various metrics.
* Fast code deployment.
Google App Engine provides its computing resources, exactly as much as needed. Developers have to write the code, and Google App Engine takes care of the rest.
* The project’s surge in popularity is taken care of, the sudden increase in traffic is no longer a headache for developers. Google App Engine will take care of it with its own servers.
* Easily integrates with other Google services. This is a huge time and nerve saver for developers, who no longer have to write authentication and email components from scratch for every new project. Developers using the Google App Engine can use the built-in components as well as take advantage of the large Google API library.
Only the first 10, 000 developers who manage to register will be able to sign up for the beta and will be allowed to post their apps.
The service is completely free for the beta testing period, but there is a usage limit. Applications cannot use more than 500 MB of total storage, 200 daily cycles of CPU time, and 10 GB of traffic per day (in both directions). This is equivalent to about a million page views per month, which is normal for a standard web application. After beta testing, these limitations will be removed, everyone will be able to use these parameters for free, but developers will have to pay for any overages. At this point, Google has not yet set a price for the service.
Google plans to earn from the service with AdSense, counting on developers to insert code into their web applications, but no real return on investment is expected from the service.
"The main motivation is to create the most comfortable environment for developers and move forward, thereby developing the market for web applications.
If so it’s easier for developers to create web applications, which entails an increase in the total number of applications, and therefore will attract more users to the web, and therefore to Google, and this is what we need well "( Koomen )
One of the current restrictions is that applications must be written exclusively in Python, the explanation for this point is that Python is their main scripting language (in 2005 hired Python creator Guido van Rossum). Google is considering all options with other popular languages as well.
