With introduction of Compute Engine, Google completed the trio of 1-tier IaaS providers.

But, IaaS is too easy (https://cloud.google.com/products/compute-engine/#pricing).

The first child of the family - App Engine (https://cloud.google.com/products/app-engine/) PaaS, got PHP support last year. And now it is possible to connect from GAE PHP to Cloud SQL - a fully managed MySQL service hosted on Google Cloud Platform.

What you're waiting for? A personal major blog engine running on no-joke PaaS for free (https://cloud.google.com/products/app-engine/#pricing)!

We'll go through the hassles of getting WP running in the cloud from ground up to production. After that, feel free to brag about your Cloud accomplishments, I'll share mine.

Some PHP and WordPress knowledge is recommended. A Google (GMail) account is required.
