1. Platform as a Service (PaaS) Cloud computing service which provides a computing platform and a solution stack as a service. Consumer creates the software using tools and/or libraries from the provider. Provider provides the networks, servers, storage, etc.

2. What is Google App Engine. Overview Google App Engine (GAE) is a Platform as a Service (PaaS) cloud computing platform for developing and hosting web applications in Google-managed data centers. Google App Engine lets you run web applications on Google's infrastructure. Easy to build. Easy to maintain. Easy to scale as the traffic and storage needs grow. Free ? Yes, free for upto 1 GB of storage and enough CPU and bandwidth to support 5 million page views a month. 10 Applications per Google account.

2. What is Google App Engine. Programming languages support Java: App Engine runs JAVA apps on a JAVA 7 virtual machine (currently supports JAVA 6 as well). Uses JAVA Servlet standard for web applications: WAR (Web Applications ARchive) directory structure. Servlet classes Java Server Pages (JSP) Static and data files Deployment descriptor (web.xml) Other configuration files Getting started : ted/

2. What is Google App Engine. Programming languages support Python: Uses WSGI (Web Server Gateway Interface) standard. Python applications can be written using: Webapp2 framework Django framework Any python code that uses the CGI (Common Gateway Interface) standard. Getting started : tartedpython27/

2. What is Google App Engine. Programming languages support PHP (Experimental support): Local development servers are available to anyone for developing and testing local applications. Only whitelisted applications can be deployed on Google App Engine. ( Getting started: Google’s Go: Go is an Google’s open source programming environment. Tightly coupled with Google App Engine. Applications can be written using App Engine’s Go SDK. Getting started:

2. What is Google App Engine. Data storage App Engine Datastore: NoSQL schema-less object based data storage, with a query engine and atomic transactions. Data object is called a “Entity” that has a kind ( table name) and a set of properties ( column names). JAVA JDO/ JPA interfaces and Python datastore interfaces. Google cloud SQL: Provides a relational SQL database service. Similar to MySQL RDBMS.

2. What is Google App Engine. Data storage Google cloud store: RESTful service for storing and querying data. Fast, scalable and highly available solution. Provides Multiple layers of redundancy. All data is replicated to multiple data centers. Provides different levels of access control. HTTP based APIs.

2. What is Google App Engine. App Engine services App Engine also provides a variety of services to perform common operations when managing your application. URL Fetch: Facilitates the application’s access to resources on the internet, such as web services or data. Mail: Facilitates the application to send e-mail messages using Google infrastructure. Memcache: High performance in-memory key-value storage. Can be used to store temporary data which doesn’t need to be persisted.

2. What is Google App Engine. Security The sandbox: All hosted applications run in a secure environment that provides limited access to the underlying operating system. Sandbox isolates the application in its own secure, reliable environment that is independent of hardware, operating system and physical location of a web server. Limitations imposed by sandbox (for security): An application can only access other computers over internet using the provided URL fetch and email services. Other computers can only connect to the application through HTTP/ HTTPS requests on the standard ports (80/ 443). Applications cannot write to local file system in any of the runtime environments. Application code runs only in response to a web request, a queued task or a scheduled task and must return the response data within 60 seconds. A request handler cannot spawn a sub-process or execute code after the response has been sent.

3. When to use Google App Engine. Use App Engine when: You don’t want to get troubled for setting up a server. You want instant for-free nearly infinite scalability support. Your application’s traffic is spiky and rather unpredictable. You don't feel like taking care of your own server monitoring tools. You need pricing that fits your actual usage and isn't time-slot based (App engine provides pay-per-drink cost model). You are able to chunk long tasks into 60 second pieces. You are able to work without direct access to local file system.

3. When to use Google App Engine. Business running on Google App Engine Uses App Engine to host their MyLowes service used by customers to customize and personalize their home improvement projects. Peer-to-peer car sharing and local car rental service. Workflow service based on Google applications. Source – Google I/O 2012 – App Engine Overview ( uy0nALQEAM4 )
