Chapter 9. Working with the Google App Engine Services

We have worked with various services that are provided by Google App Engine such as datastore, task queues, and e-mail, but these are not the only services that are offered by the platform. Google App Engine provides a wide variety of services that are at your disposal and which can be integrated into your application.

We will examine some of the most important services that are required by almost all web applications in one way or the other. In this chapter, we will examine the following services:

  • Memcache: Used to cache and speed up performance

  • Multi-tenancy: Used to have multiple logical compartments in your application

  • Users: Used for authentication and various operations

  • Blobs and Cloud storage: Used for storage and to serve large files

  • Images: Used to process and transform images
