Google Compute Engine
“When Smartson decided to improve the site speed by introducing a cache server we also took the opportunity to try out Compute Engine which is a part of Google Cloud Platform. In less than 30 minutes we had dimensioned the server, created the server instance, installed the operating system and the cache software, Varnish, including configuring the cache software.”. Says Fredrik Westermarck, CTO of Smartson.
Requirements and background Smartson is, despite it’s 14 years in the industry a relatively small company.
