Fully managed serverless application platform
Build and deploy applications on a fully managed platform. Scale your applications seamlessly from zero to planet scale without having to worry about managing the underlying infrastructure. With zero server management and zero configuration deployments, developers can focus only on building great applications without the management overhead. App Engine enables developers to stay more productive and agile by supporting popular development languages and a wide range of developer tools.
Open and familiar languages and tools
Quickly build and deploy applications using many of the popular languages like Java, PHP, Node.js, Python, C#, .Net, Ruby, and Go or bring your own language runtimes and frameworks if you choose. Get started quickly with zero configuration deployments in App Engine. Manage resources from the command line, debug source code in production, and run API backends easily, using industry-leading tools such as Cloud SDK, Cloud Source Repositories, IntelliJ IDEA, Visual Studio, and PowerShell.
Just add code
Focus just on writing code, without the worry of managing the underlying infrastructure. With capabilities such as automatic scaling-up and scaling-down of your application between zero and planet scale, fully managed patching and management of your servers, you can offload all your infrastructure concerns to Google. Protect your applications from security threats using App Engine firewall capabilities, identity and access management (IAM) rules, and managed SSL/ TLS certificates.
Pay only for what you use
Choose to run your applications in a serverless environment without the worry of over or under provisioning. App Engine automatically scales depending on your application traffic and consumes resources only when your code is running. You will only need to pay for the resources you consume.
Build your application in Node.js, Java, Ruby, C#, Go, Python, or PHP—or bring your own language runtime.
Open and flexible
Custom runtimes allow you to bring any library and framework to App Engine by supplying a Docker container.
A fully managed environment lets you focus on code while App Engine manages infrastructure concerns.
Monitoring, logging, and diagnostics
Google Stackdriver gives you powerful application diagnostics to debug and monitor the health and performance of your app.
Easily host different versions of your app, easily create development, test, staging, and production environments.
Route incoming requests to different app versions, A/B test, and do incremental feature rollouts.
Help safeguard your application by defining access rules with App Engine firewall and leverage managed SSL/TLS certificates* by default on your custom domain at no additional cost.
Tap a growing ecosystem of GCP services from your app including an excellent suite of cloud developer tools.
Modern web applications
Quickly reach customers and end users by deploying web apps on App Engine. With zero-config deployments and zero server management, App Engine allows you to focus on writing code. Plus, App Engine automatically scales to support sudden traffic spikes without provisioning, patching, or monitoring.
Below is a sample reference architecture for building a simple web app using App Engine and Google Cloud Platform.
Scalable mobile backends
Whether you’re building your first mobile app or looking to reach existing users via a mobile experience, App Engine automatically scales the hosting environment for you. Plus, seamless integration with Firebase provides an easy-to-use frontend mobile platform along with the scalable and reliable backend.
Below is a sample reference architecture for a typical mobile app built using both Firebase and App Engine along with other services in Google Cloud Platform.
