I’m currently taking the Google Developer Cloud for a spin (Currently a 60 day free trial with $300 credit), and I must say it’s definitely one of the more robust systems. With the gcloud commands/API it is really intuitive. Lightning fast, and there’s no hassling with a GUI/Web interface if you don’t want to use it.
I spun up a Seafile server (Personal DropBox) running with a 500G attached disk in minutes on a Debian 7 VM. http://gapps.vinny.us:8000 I’ve dealt with many API’s, and this one wins hands down. I do lean toward command line administration though.
Now to do some scaling and HA.
More to come… =0)
