General Public Now Has Access To Google App Engine

Google announced the general availability of App Engine for Go, the cloud-native open source language aimed at solving large-scale compute issues.

The company is removing the beta label on the offering and extending the App Engine Service Level Agreement and Deprecation Policy to it.

“Originally deployed as an experimental service in 2011, App Engine for Go has been serving production web and mobile applications for more than four years,” says product manager Jason Buberel. “In that time, the community has seen Go become the standard for cloud infrastructure technologies, including Docker and Kubernetes. App Engine for Go now serves millions of compute hours every month.”

“This announcement won’t change how you use App Engine today, but we have heard your feedback: We will continue to make significant investments in App Engine for Go, including an improved SDK and an upgrade to the Go 1.5 runtime,” he adds. “Our goal is to make App Engine the best deployment platform for Go programmers.”

Documentation is available here.

Here’s a look at how to utilize Go on App Engine from Google I/O 2013:

The release follows that of App Engine for PHP, which was made generally available and stippled of its beta label about a month ago.
