Yes, you can run your ASP.NET application on Google's cloud.

For the past 3 months, my team was busy working on the samples and documentation that show an ASP.NET application running on Google Cloud Platform.  Now, they are ready to share with you!

https://cloud.google.com/dotnet/getting-started/hello-world shows you how to deploy an ASP.NET application to an instance running on Google Compute Engine.

https://cloud.google.com/dotnet/getting-started/tutorial-app shows you how to get the most out of the Google Cloud Platform:

  • Use Entity Framework and Google Cloud SQL to store data.
  • Use Datastore to store data.
  • Store big blobs of data in Google Cloud Storage.
  • Execute long-running processes in background processes with Google Pub/Sub.
Give it a try, and let me know what you think!
