Zoho Launches Easy Deployment Service to Google AppEngine
Zoho has announced that they now support app deployment to Google AppEngine today. Basically what this means is that if you create an application in Zoho Creator, you can now quickly deploy it to Google AppEngine which will allow for more discovery and potentially up the take rate for the app.
Zoho notes that it takes only three steps to get an app onto Google AppEngine. First the application must be created in Zoho Creator. Next the developer must create a "placeholder" in Google AppEngine. Last, the developer deploys the application from Zoho Creator to Google AppEngine. The big benefit is that Zoho Creator takes care of writing the Python code for Google. Currently Google only supports the Python language on AppEngine.
Zoho self-reports 130,000 applications have been built using Zoho Creator. Back in September, Zoho launched an app marketplace and I assume today’s AppEngine announcement is an extension of Zoho’s desire to get apps discovered.
Here’s an overview from Zoho on how the Google AppEngine deployment works:
