Ensure High Availability for Business-Critical Applications



When your business depends on PHP applications, you need to provide a great user experience even when a server may be down, whether due to a problem or to scheduled maintenance. Zend Server includes session clustering capabilities that provide a high performance, scalable failover solution for your application.  Zend Server clustered architecture
With Zend Server's cluster management, user sessions are always maintained on multiple servers. When one server becomes unavailable, session data is automatically retrieved from a different server within the cluster, thus making the event completely transparent to end users.
