Google Hosts Web Applications By Outside Software Developers - WSJ.com

Hmm...

Google Inc. is letting software developers run their Web applications on its technology infrastructure in a move that highlights the increasing competition between tech companies to provide the computing and network backbones that power Web services.

Developers who sign up for the test of the Google App Engine will be able to have their Web-based applications run on computer servers in Google's data centers. Such applications are services that consumers access through their Web browsers, sometimes as part of other sites such as Facebook Inc.'s social-networking site. Web applications range from word processors to simple games people can play against their friends.
