Zend Empowering Developers to Accelerate and Scale Mobile and Web Application Delivery

Zend Server 7, Including the All-New Z-Ray, Delivers Agile Innovation for Application Developers on Amazon Web Services

CUPERTINO, Calif., Aug. 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Zend, the PHP company, today announced that the company is delivering its integrated PHP application platform as an advanced cloud service on Amazon Web Services (AWS) through AWS Marketplace. The offering on AWS empowers application developers to develop better applications faster, deploy them continuously and scale them infinitely.

Zend is the leading PHP Web Application Platform

Running PHP on the AWS Cloud, backed by one of the largest development communities, will give developers real advantage. They can start application projects easily, without capital investment, and evolve them seamlessly to efficient multi-team, multi-server projects with full automation of all steps of the application development life cycle. This platform enables agile development at scale, helping companies to deliver innovation faster.

Benefits for Developers, Development Managers and IT Executives

The recently released Zend Server 7 features Z-Ray, which effortlessly gives developers deep insight into how their code is running as they are developing it – all without having to change any of their habits or workflow. This helps them to write better code, detect issues earlier, and fix them before their work is integrated and deployed  

Development managers gain from the visibility, reliability of the release processes, and the ease with which they can scale teams, processes and production environments.

"We've bet our business on AWS - their cloud platform is the very definition of 'Business Critical' for us," says Bryan "BJ" Hoffpauir, Chief Architect of Comit Developers, "Zend's best of breed technologies and world-class business development teams offer Comit the ability to manage our customer's web sites far more efficiently and deliver an exceptional customer experience.  With Zend Server 7's latest features, like Z-Ray, work that used to take our engineering teams hours to accomplish can now be completed in minutes."

IT executives will appreciate the breadth of AWS services, and the availability of a broad developer, partner and application ecosystem for Zend on AWS.

"We are excited to have Zend Server 7 on AWS Marketplace, allowing 1-Click access to an important integrated PHP application platform for developers," said Terry Hanold, Vice President, Cloud Commerce, Amazon Web Services, Inc. "Zend Server 7 on AWS Marketplace offers developers even more tools to build quality, scalable applications quickly on the AWS Cloud."

Test, Build and Scale Infinitely

Zend Server 7 is available on AWS Marketplace in three editions: Developer, Professional and Enterprise. Developer Edition is designed for building and testing applications, with special developer features and very affordable pricing. Professional and Enterprise Editions are packaged for production environments, with Enterprise Edition providing the highest SLAs and enterprise-class performance features.

"Today's businesses must deliver quality applications efficiently and effectively to innovate and succeed, and much of that developer innovation is taking place in the cloud," said Andi Gutmans, CEO and co-founder, Zend. "The Zend on AWS is a game-changer, making PHP developers successful in the very place where disruptive innovation is happening – the cloud. Our work with Amazon creates a cloud and mobile-friendly developer ecosystem that gives these developers the ammunition they need to create the quality, forward-looking applications businesses require to survive and thrive."
