(The Hosting News) – Coinciding with its I/O conference, Google on Wednesday announced plans for more widespread availability of Google Compute Engine – a platform that allows users to run large-scale workloads via Linux-based VMs.

“Google Compute Engine provides a fast, consistently high-performance environment for running virtual machines. Later today, you’ll be able to go online to cloud.google.com and start using Compute Engine,” stated Google’s Urs Hölzle via a blog post.

In addition to the move, the company also announced ISO 27001:2005 international security certification for Compute Engine along with other platforms including Google Cloud Storage and Google App Engine.

Among Compute Engine’s features are sub-hour billing, shared-core instances, advanced routing and persistent disks that support 10TB per volume.

Meanwhile, the tech giant also announced PHP runtime integration with Google App Engine along with a non-relational data solution called Google Cloud Datastore.

The new offerings could help Google compete more directly against Amazon Web Services.
