Introduction to AppScale and Google App Engine - Part 3

Posted at — Nov 23, 2014

I was going to spend the third part of this topic trying the same appscale installation on a VMware install on ubuntu 14.04LTS as well as a CoreOS install. I’m not going to do that now.I have decided that while the idea of using appscale on private hardware there is a lot to be gained by installing my apps on GAE instead. The fact that I would not have to maintain the host OS is of tremendous benefit. And by extension that could have been accomplished with CoreOS but since CoreOS is really meant for Docker I’m uncomfortable trying to pollute the CoreOS ecosystem.So this chain of reasoning is over and part 5 of this series will focus on a hello world app in go, dart and maybe nodes if it exists. I will be skipping over python, php, and java. I have already implemented a project or two in python and I like the tools.Linkshttp://highscalability.com/blog/2014/4/8/microservices-not-a-free-lunch.html
