It seems like every time Google releases a product it's a game changer. Google App Engine is just another one of those products. GAE allows a developer to easily write an application in Python and deploy it to a massively scalable infrastructure. It seems like a step up in both power and abstraction from Amazon's Elastic Cloud. With so many cool things included like Python, Django and Google's persistence backend a short blog post like this can't possibly due it justice. If anyone has the connections to hook me up with an account I'd like to do some experimenting and blog about it.
