Zend Sends Enterprise PHP Skyward

Zend Technologies has had a busy month. In addition to releasing Zend Studio 8, the company has also announced a new cloud application platform to accelerate enterprise PHP adoption in the cloud.

The Zend PHP Cloud Application Platform has been built to provide access to cloud application services and management, while delivering the cloud's generally accepted benefits in terms of elasticity and high availability.

As an enterprise-grade web application infrastructure, the company asserts that this offering integrates technologies from new Zend product releases as well as cloud services offered through Zend partners.

“PHP powers one-third of the world’s websites and already accounts for a substantial portion of all cloud application deployments,” said Andi Gutmans, CEO and co-founder of Zend. “With this solution, Zend enables developers to quickly build portable cloud applications, provides IT operations teams with a reliable and manageable high-performance PHP environment, and offers a ‘pay-per-use’ pricing model that best fits cloud application deployments.”

Zend PHP Cloud Application Platform highlights include:

  • Native and portable cloud services — rapid development of cloud or native cloud applications using Zend Framework components.
  • Enterprise PHP stack — high-performance, supported application stack including PHP, Zend Framework, necessary extensions and drivers.
  • Monitoring and diagnostics — application monitoring and diagnostics across multiple server instances for identification and triage of application- and service-level issues.
