TL;DR: AppScale runs on Nutanix with no changes, offering another option for App Engine apps to run on-prem (check out the video below!).
In AppScale, we call each App Engine application instance an AppServer. It’s the unit we use to scale the application. Applications need at least one AppServer running to serve requests. Adding more AppServers increases application performance and redundancy.
AppScale 3.1 saw the introduction of the Azure agent in a beta capability. AppScale 3.2 brings a new and improved Azure agent which graduates to production ready our support of Azure. One of the main changes, was the introduction of Scale Sets in the agent code.
We recently have received growing interest from our customers in moving their Google App Engine workload to Microsoft Azure, and to emerging markets around the globe. This is no surprise given Microsoft’s wide range of global deployment options, including multiple alternatives in China.
Cold, dark, sounds, movements...focus & execution. Being an avid outdoorsman, I partake in some very fun and challenging recreational activities. One of which is freediving in the cold night waters of the Pacific Ocean for California Spiny Back Lobsters (a.k.a Bugs).
