Google Cloud Adds HTTP Load Balancing and SSD Persistent Disk

Google introduced HTTP Load Balancing and SSD Persistent Disk capabilities for its Cloud Platform.

HTTP Load Balancing
Google claims the new HTTP Load Balancing can scale to support more than 1 million requests per second with no “warm up.” It also supports content-based routing. Load balancing can also be enabled across different regions -- balancing traffic across Google data centers located in different parts of the world.

SSD Persistent Disk
Google's SS Persistent Disk delivers IOPS performance in block storage. SSD persistent disk is priced at a flat $0.325 monthly cost per GB. It supports up to 30 IOPS per GB.
