Google App Engine for Quick Deployments

Overall Satisfaction with Google App Engine

We use it across the organization to host various internal projects and for a variety of support-level tools we use in house. Mostly PHP and NodeJS apps, some are pre-built apps that run great on app engine, others are built in house and are tailored to very specific needs that various groups or clients need.
  • Very flexible, runs PHP, Node, Java, Go, etc.
  • Standard environments with regards to the stack being used.
  • Now part of Google Cloud.
  • Documentation for certain things is lacking.
  • Better tutorials for certain stacks.
  • Overall very positive.
  • Seamless integration keeps costs low, for one.
  • Prices are competitive with similar offerings from Amazon, etc.

I can't really say much here as I've not used deis.io on any actual projects.
Getting certain apps to run on App Engine can be a hassle, but if you start building something on App Engine, it's very robust and easily integrates with other Google Cloud offerings. There are, however, tutorials for getting WordPress up and running on AppEngine. Also Laravel is pretty slick with App Engine.
