Google App Engine is powered by Google, so the quality of the product is always good, but sometimes, when Google App Engine gets a new update, one has to search a lot to fully implement according to the new update. There is no step-by-step process for the migration of the update. The rest is good!

Good amount of documentation available for Google App Engine and in general there is large developer community around Google App Engine and other products it interacts with. Lastly, Google support is great in general. No issues so far with them.

Support could be better. There is so much self-help and documentation available for Google App Engine that it is easy to find answers, but if something is a real issue, it can be a hassle to work through support to get to the right person. Make sure to set up StackDriver!

The customer support for the search engine has been one of the major plus points in the service. The team has been very responsive in helping us solve any issues. I like the options available for us to choose the level of support. It is very convenient for smaller companies to have the flexibility to opt for different levels of service.

I haven't had to use their support line as there is a forum with helpful people answering all your questions. Check stackoverflow or google groups for google app engine.

Documentation is excellent and it is also possible to engage with the Google App Engine team if you are chosen by them, but I dock two points because if you are not chosen as a "test case" then they may be difficult to get ahold of, and because the documentation continues to change.
