Ability to test before deployment and security authorization are key features
Pros and Cons
  • "Seurity features - unauthorized individuals are unable to access certain applications."
  • "Difficult to assess how pricing is managed."

What is our primary use case?

This solution is a model for us right now, and I'm using it with my classmates. We are resellers. I'm currently a Masters student and teaching assistant. 

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature in the solution is basically the security where you're required to use the AIP to initialize the accessibility process. It means that unauthorized individuals are unable to access certain applications. Mostly it is based on the workplace environment. Testing deployments is also a valuable feature as it enables you to test your app before you deploy on cloud.

What needs improvement?

Everything so far has gone smoothly, I've never had a struggle with the solution. 

In terms of product improvement, when it comes to billing, I think they should include something that would give the client or user an indication of what's happening so they can be aware of how pricing is being managed. 

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using this solution for the past few months. 

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It's a stable solution. 


What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

I think it's a scalable solution. because basically you can add the amount of storage you want. When it comes to bugs, mostly there are no errors. It has happened, but rarely although I do think a little bit of improvement could be made in that area. 

How was the initial setup?

Initial installation is very straightforward, it takes no more than 45 minutes. 

What other advice do I have?

This solution is cheaper and more efficient compared to other similar solutions with cloud vendors. 

I would rate this solution an eight out of 10. 

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

Effective self-management and implementation is straightforward
Pros and Cons
  • "Google App Engine's most valuable feature is self-management. You do not have to manage the infrastructure underneath where all the functions are happening, such as load balancing deployment and version management, they are managed by the system itself."
  • "The only concern is that there is a number of the offerings which are built on their own proprietary technologies. With some of the offerings in Google Cloud, it's difficult to have a path to migrate to other cloud providers."

What is our primary use case?

We have five Google App Engine applications deployed on private clouds, and we have some deployed on public clouds. We use both Google and Microsoft.

What is most valuable?

Google App Engine's most valuable feature is self-management. You do not have to manage the infrastructure underneath where all the functions are happening, such as load balancing deployment and version management, they are managed by the system itself.

Google Cloud has a number of products that complement each other in being able to provide solid cloud feature sets. We've had many products that are available on Google Cloud and you are able to build whatever you want. There's always a solution for what you need.

What needs improvement?

The only concern is that there is a number of the offerings which are built on their own proprietary technologies. With some of the offerings in Google Cloud, it's difficult to have a path to migrate to other cloud providers.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been Google App Engine for approximately four years.

How was the initial setup?

The solution is easy to deploy. 

What other advice do I have?

I rate Google App Engine an eight out of ten.
