I’ve opted till now on the Amazon cloud (EC2) as my grid vendor of choice, due to the flexibility of using your own machine image. Something that is lacking for example in the SalesForce platform. However, with the recent announcement of the Google cloud (AppEngine) it seems that they support almost the full Django stack!!! (what’s missing is the database layer, which is replaced with a very similar layer, working against the BigTable database, & the Auth & Admin apps, which are replaced by Google apps). This suits me like a glove (sorry for the rest of you though…) My existing apps can just be uploaded to their grid & build upon the BigTable database & the GFS!
Still need to learn their SDK & terms. Currently, it just sounds too good to be true!
