App Engine Case Studies

Posted by Paul McDonald, App Engine Team

Over the past few months we've heard some amazing stories detailing just how easy it is to create scalable web applications on App Engine. We've invited a few developers to participate in some case study videos and tell you more about their experience with App Engine.

BuddyPoke! is an OpenSocial app running on MySpace, Orkut, and Hi5. It has scaled to nearly 30M daily pageviews on App Engine.

"App Engine has been a godsend in terms of our scalability...we saw a 8x jump in installs overnight and we are now serving 12 million users!" - Dave Westwood, BuddyPoke!

Pixverse (PixChat)
PixChat, recently acquired by Hi5, lets you chat with friends across the web within your Hi5 profile page. 

"Running our app on App Engine was really easy...the whole porting effort took only 3 hours." - Charles Ying, Pixverse

Hyperic (CloudStatus)
CloudStatus monitors the health and performance of major cloud computing platforms like App Engine and Amazon Web Services.

These are but three examples of the many applications that have been developed on App Engine.  Are you interested in sharing your experience?  If so we'd love to hear from you, tell us your story in our developer forum.
