Overall Satisfaction with Google App Engine

We use Google App Engine for multiple databases.
  • There's a fairly high free quota which makes it easy for startup to use a cloud database.
  • It's extremely scalable if you need it to be.
  • If you know Python, it's fairly easy setup
  • Google App Engine has it's own SQL (called GQL) that takes some getting used to.
  • It's based on Python 2.7, which is an old version and it doesn't have support for every module.
  • It's allowed us to create databases for small websites without incurring any expenses.
App Engine is build with web building and scalability in mind.
We've passed the learning curve and enjoy the ease of use.
It's perfect for a dynamic database for a startup website since you can coast for a while under the free quota.
