What are auto-scaling applications?
Auto-scaling / serverless applications help developers build high-quality applications without having to manually configure servers and middleware, like compilers and IDEs.
Address your software needs effectively
With a drag-and-drop code builder and guided scripting, once functions are written on Zoho Creator, they can be used across applications.
Zoho Creator has its backend set with compilers, IDEs, and interpreters; all the the user needs to do is sign up and start building applications on the go.
Write once, execute anywhere
The cloud environment makes it easier for functions to be written, stored, and executed, while eliminating compatibility issues. A function once written for an application can be used by any other application on the account.
Since the software and security updates are handled centrally, the entire ecosystem is always up to date and compliant with the latest norms and practices.
Complex business orchestration made easy
The cloud functions on Zoho Creator open an array of possibilities:
Serverless functions, or cloud functions, are equipped to run independently on the cloud, without the need for manual maintenance of complex server infrastructure.
Custom functions to align business needs
The modular character of functions means that they run and scale independently. This can be utilized to address unique business roadblocks without affecting the macro process.
Along with Deluge, Zoho Creator now supports Java and Node.js to increase the scope of application development.
Migrate your work seamlessly
Cloud functions let you migrate packages from other databases into the Zoho Creator library. This allows you to start from right where you left off and transition with ease.
Start building functions in 3 steps
Create an account
The only software or hardware prerequisite for any Zoho product is to sign up.
Write the code
Build the function using Zoho Creator's intuitive Deluge editor that can not only guide you but also minimize errors.
Integrate and share
With powerful integrations to leverage, upgrade your functions and use them across applications.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is an auto-scaling/serverless application?
Auto-scaling applications are applications that are hosted on services which require no backend configuration and hardware management on the part of the user.
Are serverless applications actually serverless?
Serverless applications are not necessarily serverless, as the name suggests. They don't eliminate servers as a whole, but rather eliminate the need for a software developer to configure them manually.
What is serverless architecture?
Serverless architecture is a software methodology to run applications on infrastructure hidden from developers. It abstracts server management, which is handled by the cloud service provider.
Is serverless computing the same as platforms-as-a-service (PaaS)?
Although similar to server abstraction, in serverless computing, there's less control over the backend architecture. The application scales automatically in contrast to PaaS, where the same process is configured manually.
