Cloud Management With RightScale Zend PHP Solution Pack

Several companies are reportedly leveraging the RightScale Zend PHP Solution Pack for faster on-boarding and potentially more reliable, scalable, and highly available PHP application deployment in cloud environments.

News of this suggestion comes from RightScale itself as its Zend PHP Solution Pack open Platform-as-a-Service (Paas) offering is now developed to provide a pre-configured cloud platform for PHP application deployment that customers can run themselves.

Customers including mediaspike, Dmedia Commerce, and have chosen the solution as a means to solve multiple problems related to rapid scaling, simplified deployment, and high availability of applications.

"Using dedicated hardware limited our lead generation efforts," said Michael Speicher, CEO of mediaspike. “With the RightScale Zend PHP Solution Pack, we are shifting to a cloud-based server architecture that will allow us to replicate each virtual server just by pushing one button. The reference architecture and best practices playbook from RightScale and Zend allows us to scale servers quickly and with extra assurance they will run correctly."

By giving customers a preconfigured and tested PHP PaaS architecture with automated scaling capabilities, RightScale and Zend say that they are providing much needed "usage spike" insurance.

The RightScale Zend PHP Solution Pack delivers a high availability (HA) architecture for cloud deployment with an open approach that lets users select from a variety of public cloud resource pools while maintaining granular control of their cloud architecture.

"The immediate interest in this Solution Pack illustrates the need for a pre-designed and supported process to efficiently on-board customers to cloud-based architectures while allowing for complete customization as they evolve their cloud deployments," said Michael Crandell, CEO of RightScale. "Our open PaaS offering with Zend makes it easier for customers to quickly deploy, scale, and most importantly, to trust that their PHP applications will be available regardless of changes in customer demand."
