I am nearing the end on a project i have been working on and am trying to figure out where to host it. I am very tempted to host it on google's app engine. you get a ton of space, band width, and processor all for free! I was hoping to get some advice as to what people think about deplying on the app engine. Would it better to wait until ruby is supported? Are there perfomrance issues with using JRuby? What would happen if ruby were supported in the future, would transfering be a pain?

Do you use active record on your project? If so, google app engine is not for you. Take a look at this post, it explains some of the limitations: http://olabini.com/blog/2009/04/jruby-on-rails-on-... regards, Leonardo Borges www.leonardoborges.com

That may be true, but Ola's post explains how to connect Rails to the Google DataStore instead. So you may not need ActiveRecord. (No, I've never actually done this.)
