Google infrastructure

Ever imagined how your website or web application would perform when it could be run on the Google infrastructure? Well now you can, Google starts hosting your applications in their datacenter on google servers and most likely running on the Google OS.

“Google App Engine enables you to build web applications on the same scalable systems that power Google applications.”

As google states:
What Is Google App Engine?
Google App Engine lets you run your web applications on Google's infrastructure. App Engine applications are easy to build, easy to maintain, and easy to scale as your traffic and data storage needs grow. With App Engine, there are no servers to maintain: You just upload your application, and it's ready to serve your users.

You can serve your app using a free domain name on the domain, or use Google Apps to serve it from your own domain. You can share your application with the world, or limit access to members of your organization.

App Engine costs nothing to get started. Sign up for a free account, and you can develop and publish your application for the world to see, at no charge and with no obligation. A free account can use up to 500MB of persistent storage and enough CPU and bandwidth for about 5 million page views a month.

During the preview release of Google App Engine, only free accounts are available. In the near future, you will be able to purchase additional computing resources.

I have tried to get a first account,… however…. I have been put on the waiting list because to many other people have applied for a developers account.
