Google Compute Engine History And Pricing
Get to know more about Google Compute Engine
Google Compute Engine (GCE) is an infrastructure component that is included as a Service from the Google Cloud Platform built on a Global infrastructure that runs Google Search, Gmail, YouTube, and other services. Google Compute Engine allows users to launch virtual machines on demand.
Virtual machines can be launched from standard images or special images created by users. Google Compute Engine users must be authenticated based on OAuth 2.0 before launching a Virtual Machine. Google Compute Engine can be accessed through the Developer Console, REST (Representational State Transfer), or command-line interface.
History Google Compute Engine
Google announced Compute Engine on June 28, 2012, on Google I / O in limited preview mode. In April 2013, Google Compute Engine was available to customers with a Gold Support Package. On February 25, 2013, Google announced that RightScale was its first retailer.
During Google, I / O input 2013, many features including sub-hour billing, shared core sample types, greater persistent storage, improved network-based software-determined network capabilities, and ISO / IEC 27001 certification were announced.
Google Compute Engine is available to everyone on May 15, 2013. Layer 3 balancing the computation load comes to Google Compute Engine on August 7, 2013. Finally, on December 2, 2013, Google announced that Google Compute Engine is generally available. This also extends system support operation, allows direct migration of Virtual Machines, for example, 16-core, faster storage, and lower standard prices.
At the Google Cloud Platform Live event on March 25, 2014. According to Urs Hölzle, Senior Vice President for technical infrastructure announced a continuous use discount, support for Microsoft Windows Server 2008, Cloud Design Naming System and Cloud Deployment Manager. On May 28, 2014, Google announced an optimization along with the dynamic scheduling of containers throughout the Virtual Engine.
Every Google Compute Engine process begins with a source storage called persistent disk. Persistent disks provide storage space for agencies that contain the root system file. Persistent storage can be used as a block of raw devices.
Google Compute Engine uses a small computer system interface to install persistent disks. Disk Persistent provides extensive, consistent, and reliable storage at a consistent and reliable price, eliminating the need for separate local disks. A persistent disk needs to be created before launching the example.
Once attached to an example, they can be formatted with the original submission system. One persistent disk can be attached to several instances in reading the only mode. Each persistent disk can reach 10TB. Google Compute Engine encrypts persistent disks with the Advanced Encryption Standard, and this encryption is implemented before the data leaves the virtual machine monitor and touches the disk. Encryption is always enabled and transparent for Google Compute Engine users. Persistent disk integrity is maintained through a message-based authentication code scheme.
On June 18, 2014, Google announced support for SSD persistent disks. This disk gives up to 30 IOPS per GB which is 20 times more IOPS writing and 100x more IOPS reading than a standard persistent disk.
