Sure, cloud computing platforms free developers from scalability and deployment issues, allowing them to spend more time actually writing web applications and services. But when choosing between two prominent platforms, Google App Engine and Amazon Web Services (AWS), which platform is best for you?

The choice can be simple if you fall into one of the following two scenarios:

* If your application can be architected to run within the limited Google App Engine runtime environment, then take advantage of Google's lower hosting costs.
* If you need a more flexible cloud deployment platform, then AWS is a good fit for your needs.

Of course, you need to consider more issues than these when making a choice. In my development work, I've had the opportunity to use both and I can tell you that they require very different architecture decisions and present different sets of challenges. In this article, I will discuss some of the main challenges in more detail.
