A Zoho and Google Partnership

It looks as if Zoho and Google are teaming up to create a powerful 1-2 punch in the fight of cloud computing vs. traditional desktop programs. For those of you who don't know, Zoho is a cloud computing company that offers cloud apps. similar to Google Docs. They are somewhat more versatile than Docs, but still not at the same level as desktop applications. So, on December 16th, Zoho announced that applications created with it's Creator Web Database Application tool will run on the Google App Engine. The beauty about Zoho Creator is that the average user (not a programmer) can use drag and drop tools to make Web applications that can be added to sites. Probably due to its easy and versatility, more than 130 000 apps. have been made. This is an excellent move to promote cloud computing, hopefully more people will become aware of the power of the cloud and enjoy endless collaboration possibilities and save money.
