Overall Satisfaction with Google App Engine

We deployed Moodle(LMS) and Odoo(ERP) applications on Google App Engine using Marketplace available configurations from Bitmani. We are using App Engine to host such client applications. The Google Marketplace saved us many hours of trying to configure these large applications ourselves.
  • Google's Marketplace is a great resource. I did not find this on other cloud services.
  • Google's billing system is easy and straightforward to understand.
  • Google's project based management of resources is good.
  • Google dashboard is not so helpful. It does not give a summary of the resource like in AWS.
  • Google console should have something like "Recently visited services" of AWS.
  • It is hard to install Google Cloud SDK.
  • It has saved time when we need to quick test applications for proof of concept.
  • The apps have good performance. Even with lower CPU's.
  • Load Balancers and Kubernetes is easy to maintain.
We prefer Google App Engine over Linode when need to hosting applications for R&D and Testing. Since the deployment has much less configuration.

Google App Engine is great for Kubernetes, since it's very stable and new releases come quickly. Google Marketplace saved a lot of time if standard open sources applications like Moodle has to be deployed and tested quickly.
Google App Engine is not good for beginners in cloud hosting, since it's hard to configure.
