      Microsoft Azure

    The question asks for the option that is not included as an equivalent remote service under Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud. Rackspace, Google Compute Engine, and Microsoft Azure are all cloud computing platforms that provide similar services to Amazon EC2. However, Google App Engine is a platform-as-a-service (PaaS) offering, which is different from the infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) model of Amazon EC2. Therefore, Google App Engine is the correct answer as it is not an equivalent remote service under Amazon EC2.
