Google Compute Engine is an Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) offering that allows clients to run workloads on Google's infrastructure. The Compute Engine provides a scalable number of virtual machines (VMs) to serve as large compute clusters for that purpose.
Virtual machines are offered as standard Google Linux-based VMs; customers may use their own system images for custom virtual machines. Virtual machines are offered in a number of memory configurations with up to 16 virtual cores each. The number of allowed instances makes it possible to run thousands of virtual CPUs working on a task.
Compute Engine is a pay-per-usage service with a 10-minute minimum and per-minute billing thereafter.
