Revealed this week.

Google Cloud – a cloud services platform designed to compete with Amazon’s EC2 – looks set to launch this Wednesday at Google’s I/O developer conference.

The company has been working on extending its cloud offerings for some time now with the expansion of Google Docs and the unveiling of Google Drive.

Sources inside Google have indicated it will reveal its EC2 competitor at the conference, reports GigaOM.

Google has focused on making it easier to write, deploy, and manage apps on its service so as to retain its developer community that could make or break the incoming cloud service.
