Google Promotes App Engine to ‘Premier Level’, Revamps Cloud Tools

Search giant Google has initiated a series of new moves in order to attract more businesses to its cloud platform, new reports revealed.

As a part of these efforts, the Mountain View based search engine giant is introducing a cut down in the price of Google Cloud storage, in addition to which, it is also accommodating a premier level for App Engine (opens in new tab).

With these steps, the company is certainly making some rather bold statements about its potential in the cloud computing arena, and encouraging businesses and developers to embrace its offerings within the same domain.

“When choosing a platform for your most critical business applications or standardizing on one across your organization, we recognize that uptime guarantees, easy management and support are just as important as product features,” read a blog post (opens in new tab) by Jessie Jiang, group product manager at Google.

“So today, we are launching Google App Engine Premier Accounts. For $500 per month, you’ll receive premier support, a 99.95% uptime service level agreement,” Jiang continued.

Google also announced an upgrade to the Google Cloud Storage, meaning it has finally stepped out of the Google Code Labs.
