Google Code Blog: OrangeScape makes Google App Engine ready for business applications

This post is part of the Who's @ Google I/O, a series of blog posts that give a closer look at developers who'll be speaking or demoing at Google I/O. This guest post is written by Mani Doraisamy from OrangeScape who will be demoing as part of the Developer Sandbox.

Google App Engine took two bold steps in the right direction for cloud computing in making its datastore distributed to ensure scalability and durability and in fixing its architecture to be stateless to ensure failover and availability. To quote Henry Ford: "Any customer can have any application that is scalable so long as he builds for this fixed architecture."

Google Code Blog: Google Storage for Developers: A Preview

As developers and businesses move to the cloud, there’s a growing demand for core services such as storage that power cloud applications. Today we are introducing Google Storage for Developers, a RESTful cloud service built on Google’s storage and networking infrastructure.

Using this RESTful API, developers can easily connect their applications to fast, reliable storage replicated across several US data centers. The service offers multiple authentication methods, SSL support and convenient access controls for sharing with individuals and groups. It is highly scalable - supporting read-after-write data consistency, objects of hundreds of gigabytes in size per request, and a domain-scoped namespace. In addition, developers can manage their storage from a web-based interface and use GSUtil, an open-source command-line tool and library.

We are introducing Google Storage for Developers to a limited number of developers at this time. During the preview, each developer will rec…
