Google has is now conducting regular Google+ Hangout Office Hours videos for Google Cloud Storage. Google shared this video about CNAME Redirection and Website Configuration, which gives you the ability to serve an entire site directly from Google Cloud storage.

The video includes a tech talk presentation, followed by Q&A. A demo begins at about 17:30 into the video.

Google says you should care about website configuration because increasingly, dynamic logic is client side (JavaScript), some sites are simple, and no longer need an App Engine App to serve static content, and it's ideal for caching of read-mostly sites (like blogs).

"For sites that fit the use case, GCS provides virtually unlimited scaling, and incredibly high performance with a global footprint from day one," Google says.

You can view the accompanying slide show here. It includes terminology, in case you need help with any of that.
