Google App Engine is a powerful platform for building scalable web applications and mobile backends. App Engine provides you with built-in services and APIs such as NoSQL datastores, memcache, and a user authentication API, common to most applications.
App Engine will scale your application automatically in response to the amount of traffic it receives so you only pay for the resources you use. Just upload your code and Google will manage your app's availability. There are no servers for you to provision or maintain.
A Platform as a Service (PaaS) that lets developers build and run applications on Google’s infrastructure, App Engine provides a wide range of services so you can rapidly develop applications from simple to complex. Developers can work with:
An overview of Google App Engine (https://cloud.google.com/appengine/docs) and the services it offers.
Demo covering the deployment of a multi-module Web application uses of the datastore, Cloud Endpoints, REST APIs, different instance types and cron jobs.
