I am currently deciding whether to use EC2 or GAE for my django app. I've done some research on both. In terms of deploying a database-driven django app with the following:
-- high on db reads / moderate db writes in mysql -- memcached -- ffmpeg (though not for video transcoding)
what are the pros / cons of each? My main considerations are:
-- ease of setting up -- ease of scaling up /down -- speed (for EC2 this is easy to figure out) -- uptime
Additionally, how would they compare in cost with GAE's recent increases? Thank you.
