Zend Server and Nginx: The Fastest PHP Around

Zend Server is the #1 professional PHP stack.

NGINX is the fastest growing Web server in the world and the top choice for large web sites, applications and services; its high performance architecture is extremely suitable for PHP.

Together, Zend Server and NGINX combine to make the ideal stack for agile PHP development and highly performant production deployment.


Why? NGINX's event driven architecture makes NGINX incredibly performant out of the box. This design delivers highly optimized connection management for HTTP requests so that hardware and operating system capacities can be fully leveraged: its method of keeping open server connections is ideal for "chatty" HTML5 and AJAX style clients. And static assets are delivered independently, so that processing power can be devoted to running your code. As an added bonus, NGINX has everything you need to implement a multi-node web server cluster.

Zend Server takes the complexity out of using NGINX with PHP: there's no simpler way to get started using PHP with this increasingly popular Web server. Installing Zend Server gives you a fully set up NGINX server properly configured to work with PHP. And it adds a pre-integrated and tested PHP stack, package management, shared libraries, event management, debugging, application clustering and much much more. Simply put: Zend Server and NGINX together give you the absolute fastest and most scalable out-of the box full-stack PHP implementation.

Note: Zend Server supports Nginx on Linux only.

Customer Quote

   Leveraging Zend Server’s capabilities and SDK allowed us to simplify the scripting and packaging mechanisms for the deployment of our code and to effortlessly support server clusters, enabling non-expert users to initiate deployments. This ensured extra control and the flexibility essential for Novadex to stay at the forefront of cloud based business communication management.   

Andreas RossbachCTO, Novadex

   Our provisioning scripts and the fully laid-out functionality of Zend deployment eliminated a lot of manual processes. Between Zend Server and Zend’s ongoing support, we’ve also gotten a lot of experience on how to do better performance testing.   

Luis ColonDirector of Enterprise Architecture, CDS Global

   With Zend Server, you can have multiple applications running on the same server, whereas other models allow just one application per server. This translates into cost savings for us because our development QA testing server has 12 apps running on it in parallel, and with Amazon Cloud our server costs are our biggest expense.
