Act! Premium Cloud on Google Cloud Platform - HTTP/2 enabled?

Recently Swiftpage announced that Act! Premium Cloud will be on the Google Cloud Platform service.
Application performance on the service is significantly improved if the application is HTTP/2 enabled.
Is Act! Premium Cloud HTTP/2 enabled?

 

To be HTTP/2 enabled, the application must run over HTTPS.
Support for the HTTP/2 protocol is automatically negotiated as part of the TLS handshake via ALPN.
The (Google) server terminating the secure HTTPS connection must support ALPN and HTTP/2 protocols.
If either side does not support the HTTP/2 protocol, they fallback to HTTP/1.1.

 

Thanks.

John,

 

  No.  Act!'s performance is not improved with use of HTTP/2, and the requirement is that we use Google's Load Balancing for it to work properly.  That Load Balancing is still in Beta.  A Beta product is not what I would recommend for our users.  If we decide to use this in the future, I will contact you here.
