Google App Engine vs Sanic: What are the differences?

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; Sanic: Python 3.5+ web server that's written to go fast. Sanic is a Flask-like Python 3.5+ web server that's written to go fast. It's based on the work done by the amazing folks at magicstack. On top of being Flask-like, Sanic supports async request handlers.

Google App Engine and Sanic are primarily classified as "Platform as a Service" and "Web Servers" tools respectively.

"Easy to deploy" is the primary reason why developers consider Google App Engine over the competitors, whereas "Asyncio" was stated as the key factor in picking Sanic.

Sanic is an open source tool with 12.3K GitHub stars and 1.15K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Sanic's open source repository on GitHub.

According to the StackShare community, Google App Engine has a broader approval, being mentioned in 473 company stacks & 329 developers stacks; compared to Sanic, which is listed in 5 company stacks and 6 developer stacks.

      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.
