A neat plugin that’s been underwraps has been given the greenlight to come out from hiding and it’s a new WordPress plugin for Google App Engine.
Built by Bronson Quick and Sennza shared their thoughts on how they got to be a part of the Trusted Tester program for PHP for Google App Engine and how they eventually were asked to help develop the key plugin:
They discovered the following:
During the testing process we found that running WordPress on Google’s infrastructure has many benefits, as you can take advantage of their world class infrastructure that will scale up and down based on your traffic demands.
With a zero-click config, you can get it setup with speed!
Google App Engine for WordPress enables seamless operation of your WordPress-powered site on the App Engine PHP runtime.
This plugin adds overrides to core functionality in WordPress to use App Engine infrastructure, such as the Mail functionality, and uploading media to Google Cloud Storage.
Pretty neat if you ask me!
