Compute Engine Now Open To All Developers
Google Compute Engine is now open to all. The company said at I/O that the cloud-based infrastructure-as-a-service offering, part of the Google Cloud Platform that competes with the likes of Amazon Web Services, Rackspace and Azure, is now open to all developers. New features include a revised billing structure that enables users to commission instances for 10 minutes at a time, if so desired. Users can also purchase access to shared instances to support smaller, less compute-intensive jobs.
