We are so happy to inform that we got into Google Cloud Startup program and Tekes Tempo funding project with our App2Day service. In this article we tell about these programs, give some tips how to apply and reveal some details about App2Day.
Google Cloud Startup Program

We have been using Google services and Google Cloud in App2Day. Thereby this program is ideal for us. With free credits we are able to have more storage and computing power on App2Day servers.
