Google just recently (at Google I/O 2012) announced their new cloud product, the Google Compute Engine. I don't really understand what it is exactly but I heard it's basically some sort of VPS service.
So I was wondering if it would be suitable for running a Bitcoin client for a web application. I don't know what resources are required for running such, either do I know what prices you get when doing so in Amazons platform. Google says Compute Engine's pricing gives you the same computation power for half the price of competitive products, but I cannot really compare.
Did anyone made this consideration as well? Did anyone take a closer look at this?
