Zend Technologies Partners with RightScale to Simplify PHP Development in the Cloud

Zend to Offer Zend Server as Part of the RightScale Solution Pack for Development and Test on the Cloud

Cupertino, CA, September 28, 2010 – Zend Technologies, the PHP Company, announced a new partnership with RightScale, the leader in cloud computing management. With this new partnership, development teams will be able to deliver PHP applications faster by leveraging the productivity and performance gains offered by Zend Server through RightScale’s open and flexible cloud management platform.

RightScale today launched the RightScale Development and Test Solution Pack — a cloud management solution designed to help software development and testing teams more easily provision and use cloud computing resources to improve software quality and speed time-to-market.

The PHP stack in the new RightScale Development and Test Solution Pack will include Zend Server, Zend’s cloud-ready PHP application stack, which comprises PHP, Zend Framework, extensions and drivers, as well as a host of features that help developers run, debug and optimize their PHP applications.

The new offering addresses the need of IT organizations to reduce the time, hassle and risk associated with managing multiple development and test environments. Developers and testers can now quickly and easily provision a complete PHP cloud-based environment based on Zend Server using RightScale’s self-service portal.

Developers use the Zend Studio IDE to build their applications locally, leverage Zend Framework components to access a variety of cloud services, and debug their applications on a Zend Server instance running in the cloud.

“RightScale leverages the power of cloud computing to deliver flexibility and consistency at the infrastructure level. Zend’s server products add the application-level infrastructure components required to realize the full benefits of the cloud,” said Eldad Maniv, Senior Vice President of Products and Marketing at Zend. “PHP has been broadly adopted for the productivity gains it brings to Web application development. The partnership between Zend and RightScale facilitates another leap in productivity that many developers will find valuable.”

“PHP is one of the most commonly used languages for cloud application deployments,” noted Betsy Zikakis, Vice President at RightScale. “By partnering with Zend, we can offer PHP professionals an easy and safe path into cloud computing. With the RightScale Solution Pack for Development and Test, they can gain fast access to all the cloud computing resources they need while using Zend Server to run and debug their applications. The combination of RightScale and Zend products helps developers get software into the hands of users faster.”
