Zend Server Patterns

Zend Server is the platform that enables Continuous Delivery, which provides consistency, automation and collaboration capabilities throughout the application delivery cycle. Patterns are available to integrate Zend Server with the following Continuous Delivery components:


Zend Engine and Zend Server


The Zend Engine has been the core scripting engine of PHP since PHP version 4. Conceived and developed by Zeev Suraski and Andi Gutmans, the Zend Engine is the catalyst that has made PHP the most popular language for dynamic website development. Zend Engine 2 made its debut in PHP 5.0 with even more revolutionary capabilities, including its built-in robust object model. Zend's commitment to the PHP community continues with the development of the Next Generation PHP engine, PHPNG. This latest realization of the Zend Engine has become the core of the soon to be released, PHP 7.
