Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"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.""It is simple to use. It is much simpler than AWS. It is also very powerful.""I've found that all of the features are valuable, especially the shared drive and the ability for multiple people to use their documents at the same time.""Administering App Engine is simple; it has intuitive UIs and a very scalable app engine."

"The dynamic vertical scaling is a unique feature.""Technical support from Jelastic is very good.""The control is valuable. It's really easy to use and you have good control of your solutions."

More Jelastic Pros →

"I would like a simpler deployment tool on laptops. It is a bit complicated at the moment. We know how to do it, but it could be easier to deploy it on laptops.""I think there's still a lot that can be done with Google Meet and the video conferencing part of it. It could be more dynamic in terms of what can be done with it.""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.""The documentation and community are lacking for this product."

More Google App Engine Cons →

"The backup functionality needs to be improved.""The security layers also need to be improved because there is no clear layer or tier of security in the solution.""Lacks better integration into enterprise storage products."
