Google Container Engine Enters Beta Along with Container Registry

Google Container Engine has entered public beta and the new Google Container Registry has become generally available.

Google Container Engine, based on the Kubernetes open source container orchestration system, provides tools for setting-up and managing a cluster of containers. Container Engine supports the common Docker container format. Google also announced pricing for once the free beta period is over: standard clusters that run up to 100 virtual machine nodes will be charged $0.15 per hour. Basic clusters of up to 5 VM nodes have no additional charge.

Google Container Registry is a private repository for storing container images.
