    I think it would be great if the plugin worked with Google storage. Google storage, whilst not a dedicated CDN solution, has been found to be better at it than many other providers.

    I have made my own plugin that uses google storage as a CDN if you would like to see the source code so that you can incorporate it in this plugin let me know.

    Hi Mate,

    Do you think it will be possible to share that plugin.

    I am looking to build a couple of sites and am interested in testing out googles CDN.

    Thanks

    Hi ijaas,

    Very much WIP at the moment but I've uploaded my plugin (link below).
    You'll need to have a google storage account (signup is free) and have created a bucket.

    Open index.php and set the bucket and site name on lines 16 and 17 and then fill in your access keys on line 47 which you can find out from here: https://sandbox.google.com/storage/m/manage

    The site name allows you to have multiple sites delivered from the same bucket.

    http://sandbox.google.com/storage/development_trunk/google-storage-cdn.zip

    If you require some assistance or have any questions / feedback. Then please email me webmaster [at] spiders-design.co.uk.

    Regards,
    Daniel Chatfield

    Also note that you may have to wait for a few minutes after activating the plugin for all theme files and uploads to be transferred to google storage. The upload happens silently all the time that a user is logged in to the admin panel or alternatively you can go to the google storage page to see what is being uploaded.

    Where is the evidence?

    I too would like to use google storage as a CDN. I already use Picasa, Calendar, Web Tools, etc. Would make everything very convenient.

    Here is a link to Cloud Harmony's monitoring web site regarding Google Storage.

    Thank You

    I'm still looking for evidence that Google provides an on par offering with other vendors.

    A test was carried out here: http://blog.cloudharmony.com/2010/06/google-storage-cdnstorage-hybrid.html

    and http://cloudharmony.com/speedtest

    As you can see from results (seconds link is better) it is extremely fast and reliable - with high content replication.

    I wouldn't consider that performance that compelling, but the value is still significant.
