Google App Engine vs Stamplay: What are the differences?
Developers describe Google App Engine as "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. On the other hand, Stamplay is detailed as "API Lego for developers. Build back-end piecing together APIs as building blocks". The API-based development platform enabling developers to do 80% of the job in 1% of the time thanks to: out of the box APIs for users and data, one-click integration with any API, scalable infrastructure and SDKs. Build Rome in a day.
Google App Engine and Stamplay are primarily classified as "Platform as a Service" and "Web App Builders" tools respectively.
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, Stamplay provides the following key features:
- One click API integrations with Stripe, Algolia, Twilio, Sendgrid and more
- Build server-side business logic with no code
- API to store any data type
"Easy to deploy" is the primary reason why developers consider Google App Engine over the competitors, whereas "Easy to use" was stated as the key factor in picking Stamplay.
