Use the Google App Engine platform to run web apps on Google's infrastructure, the same scalable systems that run Google applications. Use the platform to run your apps reliably, even if you have heavy load and data needs. The environment has dynamic web serving, persistent storage with queries, sorting and transactions, automatic scaling and load balancing, APIs for authenticating users and sending email using Google Accounts, and a local testing environment.
Platform as a Service (PaaS) is widely considered to be the ideal way to get your applications to the cloud. Google with its App Engine product was among the first off the blocks and the last few years have seen steady fixes and enhancements to the platform.
