Last year we announced Google Compute Engine to enable any business or developer to use Google’s infrastructure for their applications. Now we’re taking the next step: Google Compute Engine is open to everyone in preview, and you can sign up online now.

Over the past year, we’ve launched several features and made significant improvements behind the scenes. We’re now announcing several new capabilities that make it easier and more economical to use Compute Engine for a broader set of applications.

To get started, go to the Google Cloud Console, select Compute Engine and click the “New Instance” button.

Fill out the required information and click “Create” on the right hand side. Your new virtual machine will be ready to use in about a minute.

To all of our customers who helped us evolve the product over the past months, thank you; your feedback has helped shape Compute Engine. To those of you who have been eager to try Compute Engine, the wait is over and you can sign up for Compute Engine online today.

Navneet Joneja loves being at the forefront of the next generation of simple and reliable software infrastructure, the foundation on which next-generation technology is being built. When not working, he can usually be found dreaming up new ways to entertain his intensely curious three-year-old.
