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.

We raised some queries on the Google Developer Support Block and received the awesome responses to identify our mistake on the Google App Engine API.

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!

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.

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.

Google App Engine (GAE) and Google in general seem to have very strong customer support. One of the most critical elements in my customer support experiences have been reliability of updates during an incident. Google has been consistently strong in giving updates while an issue was occuring, with specific technical status to relay back to the team, along with potential timelines.

We like the way Google App Engine helps us to reduce time on setup, configuring and deploying applications, maintaining performance and scale resources. Google App Engine [documentation] is very clear and well organized.

We have not had to engage the premier support level, and the product has been so stable that the base level support has been sufficient.

It's very difficult and expensive to get support from a real person. Often engineers don't want to acknowledge that something is wrong on their side, one particular instance, there was a network error in the US East Region and customer support failed to acknowledge it until a tweetstorm got their attention.

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.

I have never had the opportunity to interact with the customer support team on the the Google App Engine. It is therefore difficult for me to give a accurate rating. The sales team did a good job and any interactions I had with them were pleasant and to the point.

Most of the support comes in the form of help articles, as is standard with Google. I have not needed further support. There are also many independent resources, on the web and on Youtube, to help when needed.

Google support is mostly offshore for the US. At times, this makes for language and communication issues.
