  2. Google Compute Engine  – if you like to be in control of the infrastructure hosting your site, this is the solution. You need to understand about operating systems, web servers etc. (Infrastructure as a service).
  3.  Google App Engine  – Google takes care of the infrastructure, all you have to do is deploy your app based on a template Google defines. (Platform as a service)
