Video demo on how to deploy apps to Google App Engine from eXo Cloud IDE in five minutes:
SAN FRANCISCO, June 28 — Google I/O — eXo, the user experience platform-as-a-service (UXPaaS) company, today announced during the Google I/O developers conference that its cloud-based integrated development environment, eXo Cloud IDE, now integrates with Google App Engine. Developers building Java or Python applications for Google App Engine can now develop, debug, deploy and manage their applications through a browser – entirely online. eXo Cloud IDE is available today and offered free of charge, and users can sign up for accounts at www.cloud-ide.com.
"eXo Cloud IDE for Google App Engine makes it easy for developers to develop, debug and deploy web apps directly to the Google App Engine," said Google App Engine Product Manager Chris Ramsdale. "It's a full-featured, web-based IDE that makes it extremely easy for developers to get up and running, building great applications that run on Google's infrastructure."
Because they can access their eXo Cloud IDE-based projects from any browser, developers can work from any location, any time. They are no longer tethered to a single development machine; working with Cloud IDE, developers can be productive anywhere, anytime.
"Since eXo started the Cloud IDE project back in 2010, our objective has been to make developers more productive in building and deploying cloud-based apps," says Mark Downey, product manager for eXo Cloud Services. "We've made it easy to import code from GitHub. We've made it easy to build and debug that code. We have tried to make the development workflow as painless as possible by providing a smooth integration with popular cloud services -- from source control to application hosting -- and now we're bringing that integration to the Google App Engine world."
eXo Cloud IDE supports both Google App Engine for Java as well as Google App Engine for Python natively.
Expanding PaaS Support
eXo Cloud IDE has already attracted thousands of development teams because of its support for a wide range of PaaS environments, including Red Hat OpenShift, Salesforce Heroku, CloudBees, and VMware Cloud Foundry. By adding Google App Engine to its roster of supported PaaS environments, those development teams now have an easy on-ramp to the Google App Engine environment. Linking a Google App Engine account to eXo Cloud IDE is a simple process that takes only seconds – no need to download and configure separate tools. In all, a developer new to eXo Cloud IDE could create a new project, connect to GitHub, debug and deploy an app directly to Google App Engine, without leaving the browser – in under five minutes.
Pricing and Availability
eXo Cloud IDE is offered free of charge. Developers can sign up today, connect their Cloud IDE accounts to their GitHub and/or Google App Engine accounts, and be developing apps for Google App Engine within minutes. To sign up, visit www.cloud-ide.com/ .

Large-scale, worldwide scientific initiatives rely on some cloud-based system to both coordinate efforts and manage computational efforts at peak times that cannot be contained within the combined in-house HPC resources. Last week at Google I/O, Brookhaven National Lab’s Sergey Panitkin discussed the role of the Google Compute Engine in providing computational support to ATLAS, a detector of high-energy particles at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).
Frank Ding, engineering analysis & technical computing manager at Simpson Strong-Tie, discussed the advantages of utilizing the cloud for occasional scientific computing, identified the obstacles to doing so, and proposed workarounds to some of those obstacles.
The private industry least likely to adopt public cloud services for data storage are financial institutions. Holding the most sensitive and heavily-regulated of data types, personal financial information, banks and similar institutions are mostly moving towards private cloud services – and doing so at great cost.
