Google versus Amazon's EC2

Saturday, 12 April 2008

I have been working with Amazon EC2 for two years now managing development projects which have been deployed there. I have had a wonderful experience and I won't go back to the old way of doing it unless someone holds a gun to my head. I was excited to see Google enter the space but closer inspection of there service shows some constraints which might make it less useful to me.

How Google's App Engine stacks up with Amazon's EC2 | Outside the Lines - CNET "Dion Hinchcliffe at ZDNet compares Amazon's approach to providing infrastructure services to Google's. He found that Amazon's set of services is more flexible but not as integrated as Google's App Engine."
