The Google Cloud Ruby SDK by Chris Smith interacts with the cloud storage features of the API, in addition to the data services of Google Cloud Datastore, DNS, PubSub, and Engine APIs. The aim is to save and retrieve any amount of data in a safe way from any part of the world.

As the amount of processing power that can be affordably invoked via the cloud continues to increase, applications that were once thought too impractical to build are suddenly quite feasible. A good example of that is AppStream, a new service that Amazon is beta testing that allows graphically and resource-intensive applications to be extended out to any number of devices that previously would not have had the processing capabilities to run them.
