Google App Engine vs Shelly Cloud: 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; Shelly Cloud: Platform for hosting your Ruby and Rails apps (hosted in Europe). Shelly Cloud is significantly cheaper than other PaaS hosting providers. You save money by getting all services needed to run your application from one provider. We run our own servers, so there is no "Amazon tax" included in our prices. You pay only for what you use with per-hour metered billing.

Google App Engine and Shelly Cloud belong to "Platform as a Service" category of the tech stack.

Some of the features offered by Google App Engine are:

  • 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.

On the other hand, Shelly Cloud provides the following key features:

  • Designed for Ruby and Rails
  • Git-based workflow
  • Easy scaling

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