Google App Engine Opens to Everyone

Posted by Charles | May 28, 2008 .

I wrote about Google App Engine, which only allowed 5000 people registered back then. Today, at Google IO, its door opens to everybody. You can go sign it up and give it a spin.

How about trying out DjangoAMF or PyAMF for Flex RIA applications.

One thing I noticed though, it’s hard to get you a common name for the Google App Engine identifier. It makes me thinking either they have reserved lots of names or there were hundreds of thousands people registered there today.

Regardless, once signed up, which involve sending a SMS to your cell phone and type in the received code, you will get up to three applications created.

Business model? Amazon Web Service should pay attention here:

Free: 500MB storage, 500,000 page views per month.

Fee:

  • $0.1 – $0.12 for extra CPU hour
  • $0.15 – $0.18 for extra 1GB
  • $0.11 – $0.13 for extra 1GB outbound bandwidth
  • $0.09 – $0.11 for extra 1GB inbound bandwidth

Besides, two APIs comes with the new release, image API and memecache API. So obviously Google wants you put lots of media there and give you the super performance gCould can offer.
