Overall Satisfaction with Google App Engine

We at our organisation use Google App Engine to test and deploy dynamic internal contents. As Google App Engine is able to work with multi language support, it is beneficial for small to large tasks wherever we require serverless infrastructure. It is easy to deploy and run comparing to full machine infrastructure, as Google App Engine is part of Google Cloud services, we can use it separately along with VM instances as well wherever required.
  • It is one of the best alternatives of full machine for small applications.
  • It takes less time to implement/deploy or run applications on GAE.
  • According to me, worst thing with GAE is it's very expensive when we compare with regular implementations.
  • It has fewer tutorials or documentations, so a little bit hard to implement at the first time.
  • Google App Engine enabled us to deploy different internal applications and software within a short period of time.
  • It is easily scalable, so we don't have to worry whether the application works after a limit of use or not.
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!

Do you think Google App Engine delivers good value for the price?

Yes

Are you happy with Google App Engine's feature set?

Yes

Did Google App Engine live up to sales and marketing promises?

Yes

Did implementation of Google App Engine go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy Google App Engine again?

Yes

Google App Engine is well suited for small applications where full customization like in regular machines is not required. It takes much less time to deploy and run in Google App Engine. It is auto-scalable, so Google App Engine could be used for applications which require less or high computing. It is not suited in most cases if the budget is low.
