AWS Fargate vs Google App Engine: What are the differences?

AWS Fargate: Run Containers Without Managing Infrastructure. AWS Fargate is a technology for Amazon ECS and EKS* that allows you to run containers without having to manage servers or clusters. With AWS Fargate, you no longer have to provision, configure, and scale clusters of virtual machines to run containers; Google App Engine: Build web applications on the same scalable systems that power Google applications. Google has a reputation for highly reliable, high performance infrastructure. With App Engine you can take advantage of the 10 years of knowledge Google has in running massively scalable, performance driven systems. App Engine applications are easy to build, easy to maintain, and easy to scale as your traffic and data storage needs grow.

AWS Fargate belongs to "Containers as a Service" category of the tech stack, while Google App Engine can be primarily classified under "Platform as a Service".

Some of the features offered by AWS Fargate are:

  • No clusters to manage
  • seamless scaling
  • integrated with Amazon ECS and EKS

On the other hand, Google App Engine provides the following key features:

  • Zero to sixty: Scale your app automatically without worrying about managing machines.
  • Supercharged APIs: Supercharge your app with services such as Task Queue, XMPP, and Cloud SQL, all powered by the same infrastructure that powers the Google services you use every day.
  • You're in control: Manage your application with a simple, web-based dashboard allowing you to customize your app's performance.

According to the StackShare community, Google App Engine has a broader approval, being mentioned in 482 company stacks & 345 developers stacks; compared to AWS Fargate, which is listed in 37 company stacks and 12 developer stacks.

        What are some alternatives to AWS Fargate and Google App Engine?
        Kubernetes
        Kubernetes is an open source orchestration system for Docker containers. It handles scheduling onto nodes in a compute cluster and actively manages workloads to ensure that their state matches the users declared intentions.
        AWS Batch
        It enables developers, scientists, and engineers to easily and efficiently run hundreds of thousands of batch computing jobs on AWS. It dynamically provisions the optimal quantity and type of compute resources (e.g., CPU or memory optimized instances) based on the volume and specific resource requirements of the batch jobs submitted.
        Amazon EC2 Container Service
        Amazon EC2 Container Service lets you launch and stop container-enabled applications with simple API calls, allows you to query the state of your cluster from a centralized service, and gives you access to many familiar Amazon EC2 features like security groups, EBS volumes and IAM roles.
        Google Kubernetes Engine
        Container Engine takes care of provisioning and maintaining the underlying virtual machine cluster, scaling your application, and operational logistics like logging, monitoring, and health management.
        Amazon EKS
        Amazon Elastic Container Service for Kubernetes (Amazon EKS) is a managed service that makes it easy for you to run Kubernetes on AWS without needing to install and operate your own Kubernetes clusters.

        With Cloud Endpoints you can create and deploy mobile backend in one hour or less. And it is free (until you need extra scale). I would not recommend to use Java - python is faster and has all new appengine features.

        Pros: everything is in one place: task queue, cron, backend instances for data processing, datastore, mapreduce. Cons: you cannot easily move your code from GAE. Even with special 3rd party services.

        PaaS for back-end components, including external data ingestion APIs, front-end web service APIs, hosting of static front-end application assets, back-end data processing pipeline microservices, APIs to storage infrastructure (Cloud SQL and Memcached), and data processing pipeline task queues and cron jobs. Task queue fan-out and auto-scaling of back-end microservice instances provide parallelism for high velocity data processing.

        checking a swap require a lot of cpu resource, roster normally come out same day of month, every month, at a particular time. Which make very high spike, our flag ship product, iSwap, with the capability looking swap possibility with 10000 other rosters base on user critieria, you need a cloud computing give you this magnitude of computing power. gae did it nicely, user friendly, easy to you, low cost.

        App engine fills in the gaps in the increasingly smaller case where it's necessary for us to run our own APIs.

        Very easy to make cloud computing of ML models , and use containers like Kubernetes.
