Re: [newtech-1] AppEngine vs Amazon?

AWS RDS solution is pretty simple to setup and the performance is better than setting up a mysql solution on ec2 by yourself (and it's managed!).

For the web server you have two options, beanstalk (like heroku) or an ec2 instance.  I like mucking around in the stack and command line so I usually do an ec2 instance behind a elastic load balancer.

FWIW, i'm not too familiar with AppEngine, but I really like the availability of resources on Amazon.

I need a database to build out my h4labs site. Currently I'm on app engine and I think they have some sort of MySql solution but I'm hesitant about putting more time into it because Google is a bit proprietary. Before I do, however, I want to make sure that I can't make it work. Am I better off switching to Amazon or Linode now?
