Running Enterprise Apps Built on Google App Engine in China

Today, multinational corporations need global access to critical applications as teams collaborate 24/7 to stay ahead of the competition. The enterprise has identified Google App Engine as the most efficient platform (PaaS) to build web and mobile apps from inspiration to MVP in half the time, saving engineering resources in a pain-free, no ops environment. The use cases for Google App Engine (GAE) are diverse; from mobile gaming and SaaS to business intelligence applications. Ensuring that these applications are accessible to users inside China, however, poses some challenges (availability, accessibility and latency) due to the Great Firewall of China.


Enter China with AppScale

Because Google and GAE services are not available in China, AppScale is the only software that allows App Engine applications to be deployed in China without modification. This saves valuable development time and money but most important, drastically reduces the time to market. AppScale solves the network, performance and accessibility issues while providing a robust and reliable user experience for Chinese users.

Our Beijing-based support team works in close collaboration with Alibaba Cloud, Microsoft Azure Cloud, Tencent and AWS China to ensure that our customers receive the best possible performance and pricing. With AppScale, companies can leverage the robust development model of Google App Engine while maintaining greater control over data residency, performance, and cost for their mission-critical applications.
