PHP Fog has this week announced that its Cloud PaaS for PHP developers will be generally available within the next month. The company has positioned this new offering as a cloud-hosting platform with scalable PHP service leveraging all the latest cloud technology.
The concept behind PHP Fog is that developers get dedicated resources for their apps in the cloud and these work with existing PHP apps like WordPress, Drupal, Joomla, and frameworks like Zend, Cake, and Kohana. PHP Fog also features an app store for launching popular PHP apps like WordPress, Drupal, Magento, and SugarCRM.
"With PHP Fog, developers can focus on what they do best — creating code — and they don't have to worry about complex configurations and the nuances of daily maintenance programs for deployment environments. We take care of it for them," said Lucas Carlson, CEO and creator of PHP Fog.
"Our cloud-based architecture gives apps the reliability and scalability needed so that developers can deploy their code in a few keystrokes, which means faster development and iteration cycles. That in turn means better use of their time and less stress over things they don't need to be maintaining," added Carlson.
