Choosing GAE as the platform four our project is a mistake which cost I estimate in about 15000€. Considering it's been my money, it is a "bit" painful.

Before all, the author did a really worse technology review job. The most problems he described should be obvious from the start. Things like HTTPS support are under development and should be available by the end of this year. Also I'd really like to read his report if he choose a conventional scalable high-availability infrastructure instead of GAE where he had to deal with all the configuration and maintenance issues himself. I doubt that he would face less problems in this case. Software development is about solving problems, so what's the big deal if anything works not as originally intended? I think it's rather the norm than an exception.

The author does not understand GAE, period.

The author is ranting because he failed to understand what GAE is before building his application. Sure GAE has had its problems but most of what this guy is complaining about are parts of GAE that are well documented.

It is not google app engine's fault. All these limitations have been documented. It is better to switch to Amazon's web service.

At least with Azure you have the option of classic SQL as well as blob storage.
