Google's Bold Plan to Overthrow Amazon as King of the Cloud | Wired Enterprise | Wired.com

Google has a major cloud event today

"Google has long offered cloud services that let outsiders build websites and other applications without buying, installing, or operating their own computer hardware. It unveiled a service called Google App Engine in 2008, and in 2012, it followed with a sister service, Google Compute Engine. But in this market — a market that represents the future of computing — Google has always trailed Jeff Bezos and Amazon, who pioneered the idea.
