From global, load-balanced, resilient services to flexible single-instance VMs, we provide a scalable range of computing options you can tailor to match your needs. Google Compute Engine provides highly customizable virtual machines with best-of-breed features, friendly pay-for-what-you-use pricing, and the option to deploy your code directly or via containers. Google Kubernetes Engine lets you use fully-managed Kubernetes clusters to deploy, manage, and orchestrate containers at scale. Google App Engine is a flexible platform-as-a-service that lets you focus on your code, freeing you from the operational details of deployment and infrastructure management.
Google Compute Engine delivers virtual machines running in Google's innovative data centers and worldwide fiber network. Compute Engine's tooling and workflow support enable scaling from single instances to global, load-balanced cloud computing. Compute Engine's VMs boot quickly, come with high-performance persistent and local disk options, and deliver consistent performance. Our virtual servers are available in many configurations, including predefined sizes, and options to create Custom Machine Types optimized for your specific needs. Flexible pricing and automatic sustained use discounts make Compute Engine the leader in price/performance.
Google App Engine is a platform for building scalable web applications and mobile and IoT 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 — you don't need to provision or maintain a single server.
Google Kubernetes Engine is a powerful cluster manager and orchestration system for running your Docker containers. Kubernetes Engine schedules your containers into the cluster, keeps them healthy and manages them automatically based on requirements you define (such as CPU and memory). It's based on Kubernetes, the leading open-source container orchestration system giving you the flexibility to take advantage of on-premises, hybrid, or public cloud infrastructure.
Store your private container images on Cloud Platform for fast, scalable retrieval and deployment. Google Cloud Container Registry is a private Docker repository that works with popular continuous delivery systems. It runs on Cloud Platform to provide consistent uptime on an infrastructure protected by Google's security. You pay only for the storage and internet egress you use; there is no per-image fee.
Cloud computing has made possible fully serverless models of computing where logic can be spun up on-demand in response to events originating from anywhere. With Cloud Functions, you can construct applications from bite-sized business logic billed to the nearest 100 milliseconds, only while your code is running. Serve users from zero to planet-scale, all without managing any infrastructure.
