Under the Hood with GCP’s App Engine

Under the Hood with GCP’s App Engine. Google’s App Engine service is a great way to get web applications up. This service is part of Google Cloud Platform free tier and getting started with the App Engine is easy.

Google’s App Engine service is a great way to get web applications up and running with minimal effort. In fact, I have an  article on how you can spin up a Node.js application on this platform in about 10 minutes. This service is part of Google’s  free tier and getting started with the App Engine is easy but one can struggle with understanding the different configuration options and the pricing structure. This article outlines in three sections what you need to consider when configuring and deploying your applications on the App Engine platform.

Hosting Options — Things to keep in mind when configuring and deploying your App Engine application.

Pricing — How App Engine charges are incurred.

Other Considerations — Some other considerations when deploying an App Engine application.

Let’s get started.

Hosting Options

When deploying an application you must provide instructions to the App Engine on what settings to use via a app.yaml config file. This section aims to help you understand the difference in deployment options and how they can be specified in this file.

Here is an example of a app.yaml file:

runtime: nodejs14
env: standard
instance_class: F1
service: my-node-app
automatic_scaling:    
    max_instances: 2    
    min_instances: 0    
    min_idle_instances: 0    
    max_idle_instances: 1
