So this is something that google is pushing and could be very irresistible for any online business starting up. I just read this story here from techcrunch.
Here's the original link if you wanna read: http://techcrunch.com/2014/09/12/google-offers-early-stage-startups-100000-in-cloud-platform-credits-for-1-year/
It is said to be one of google program on cloud platform and let them manage your file storage, database and other applications. This is some offer that most company starting would cannot probably pass because of the huge savings will have for a period of one year.
Although there are some qualification for the program like the company's startups must be less than five years old and have less than $500,000 in annual revenue. Also includes as qualification that they must be part of one of 50 accelerator programs google has partnered with.
“This offer supports our core Google Cloud Platform philosophy: we want
developers to focus on code; not worry about managing infrastructure,”
writes Google’s Julie Pearl today. “Starting today, startups can take
advantage of this offer and begin using the same infrastructure platform
we use at Google.”
Although it is a very good program, still most analyst would think it is another of google marketing gimmicks. Whatever you think though, this still requires many more resources and unless your site is already very popular, you will still need a lot of thinking before you dive into it.
