Yes you are. Seaside hosting compares better to Amazon S3 but you are
limited to one virtual machine and can not add stuff yourself (like a
database). Google App Engine intentionally restricts itself to a very
small subset which they can scale.
SeasideHosting is just _ONE_ machine. It is intended to be free. It is
not intended for productive applications.
