Google Cloud Platform announces new Container Registry
Yay. Sensible Docker registry pricing at last. Given the high prices, rough edges and slow performance of the other registry offerings, I'm quite happy to see this.
Google Container Registry helps make it easy for you to store your container images in a private and encrypted registry, built on Cloud Platform. Pricing for storing images in Container Registry is simple: you only pay Google Cloud Storage costs. Pushing images is free, and pulling Docker images within a Google Cloud Platform region is free (Cloud Storage egress cost when outside of a region).

Container Registry is now ready for production use:

* Encrypted and Authenticated - Your container images are encrypted at rest, and access is authenticated using Cloud Platform OAuth and transmitted over SSL
* Fast - Container Registry is fast and can handle the demands of your application, because it is built on Cloud Storage and Cloud Networking.
* Simple - If you’re using Docker, just tag your image with a gcr.io tag and push it to the registry to get started.  Manage your images in the Google Developers Console.
* Local - If your cluster runs in Asia or Europe, you can now store your images in ASIA or EU specific repositories using asia.gcr.io and eu.gcr.io tags.

Google Cloud Platform Blog: A look inside Google’s Data Center Networks
We used three key principles in designing our datacenter networks:
We arrange our network around a Clos topology, a network configuration where a collection of smaller (cheaper) switches are arranged to provide the properties of a much larger logical switch.
We use a centralized software control stack to manage thousands of switches within the data center, making them effectively act as one large fabric.
We build our own software and hardware using silicon from vendors, relying less on standard Internet protocols and more on custom protocols tailored to the data center.
