Google has announced the latest release of its cloud platform, App Engine for Java and Python, offering support...
for multi-tenancy applications.
According to a Google Developer blog post, the 1.3.6 release features multi-tenancy support, high-performance image serving and increased datastore quotas.
The App Engine uses multi-tenancy to enable multiple businesses to run unique versions of their organisations' application, supported by the Namespaces API.
"With multi-tenancy, multiple-client organisations (or 'tenants') can all run the same application, segregating data using a unique namespace for each client," said the Google development team in a blog.
"No changes in your code are necessary to use this API - just a little extra configuration," the team added.
Other features include custom error pages and an image serving system for apps based on Picasa infrastructure, allowing users to generate dedicated URLs for image thumbnails. Increased datastore also reduces quota limits.
