Submission + - Google's Graveyard Haunts Compute Engine (itworld.com)

itwbennett writes: In case you missed it, there’s been a bit of a hubbub about whether Google is committed to its Compute Engine offering. The question popped up when analyst Rene Buest raised the alarm after reading a GigaOm story that said Google Cloud Platform manager Greg DeMichillie 'wouldn’t guarantee services like Compute Engine will be around for the long haul.' While it's fairly unlikely that Google will shutter Compute Engine as it did Reader (not least because the company runs internal offerings on GCE), cloud customers may want to think twice about selecting a provider with such a rich history of abandoning services. ITworld's Nancy Gohring asked Google to comment on the speculation and was told to 'wait until tomorrow' so there's a good chance Google will pen a blog post on this topic.
