WordPress on Google Cloud Storage: configuring a Virtual Appliance


Published on

Would you like to have your site powered by the enormous scale and reliability of Google Cloud Storage? You can do that now, and the best part is that you can host your site anywhere: on-premise, your favorite hoster or the cloud. Keep your hoster, change your hoster or move to the cloud – all your web site’s data remains always available and safe at Google Cloud Storage. You website becomes faster too: storage objects are cached within Google’s global network and distributed globally without the need for a Content Distribution Network (CDN).
