Source: Now, you can deploy your Node.js app to App Engine standard environment from Google Cloud Platform
By Steren Giannini, Product Manager, Google Cloud Platform
Developers love Google App Engine’s zero-config deployments, zero server management and auto-scaling capabilities. At Google Cloud, our goal is to help you be more productive by supporting more popular programming languages. Starting today, you can now deploy your Node.js 8 applications to App Engine standard environment. App Engine is a fully-managed application platform that lets you deploy web and mobile applications without worrying about the underlying infrastructure.
Support for Node.js in App Engine standard environment brings a number of benefits:
We’ve also crafted our Node.js client libraries so you can easily use Google Cloud Platform (GCP) products from your Node.js application. For example, Cloud Datastore is a great match for App Engine, and you can easily set up live production debugging or tracing by importing the modules. These client libraries are made possible by direct code contributions that our engineers make to Node.js.
Node.js has become a very popular runtime environment, and App Engine customers are excited by its availability on the platform.
“Once we deploy to node.js standard, we never have to manage that deployment again. It is exactly the kind of minimal configuration, zero maintenance experience we love about the rest of App Engine.”
– Ben Kraft, senior engineer, Khan Academy.
“Node.js has offered Monash University a very flexible framework to build and develop rapid prototypes and minimal viable products that provide our stakeholders and users with scalable solutions for their needs. The launch of Node.js on App Engine standard has added the bonus of being a fully managed platform, ensuring our teams can focus their efforts on developing products.”
-Eric Jiang, Monash University
App Engine is ready and waiting to host your Node.js apps, with very minimal changes. You can even try it out using the App Engine free tier—just follow our Quickstart to learn how to deploy your app, or check out this short video:
