Zend Server 6, Zend Studio 10 and Zend Server Gateway Provide End-to-End Mobile Cloud Solution
ZendCon 2012, Santa Clara, Calif.– October 23, 2012 – Zend, the PHP Company, today announced the beta version of new releases of Zend Server and Zend Studio, as well as the new Zend Server Gateway. Together, Zend Studio 10, Zend Server 6 and Zend Server Gateway offer enterprises a turnkey solution for developing, deploying and automating applications on the cloud and on-premise. Acknowledging the growing importance of cloud and mobile in the enterprise, Zend designed all three products to work together as an end-to-end solution for cloud connected mobile apps, as well as a range of web applications.
Zend Studio 10
Zend Studio is the award-winning integrated development environment (IDE) for creating high quality PHP code quickly and efficiently. Zend Studio 10 introduces exciting new capabilities for designing both web and mobile apps:
Zend Server 6
Zend Server is the world’s leading PHP Web application server used by GE, NYSE Euronext, eBay and other leading brands to run their business-critical PHP applications on-premise and in the cloud. With an entirely API-based architecture, Zend Server 6 features major advances in application manageability, scalability and enterprise readiness.
BNP Paribas, one of the largest banks in the world, uses Zend Server as its platform for enterprise development, with more than 700 tools and applications being supported. "We wanted to establish an agile, iterative development environment," said Yannic Mahé, from the BNP Paribas IT organization. "Our developers are fully satisfied with the PHP language and Zend's PHP solutions. For certain projects, PHP has enabled them to dramatically shorten the development cycle and accelerate application delivery."
Zend Server Gateway
The new Zend Server Gateway provides a simple and flexible way to enable cloud services. A lightweight set of PHP APIs based on Zend Framework 2 components, the gateway provides routing, automatic parameter binding, authentication, filtering and validation for RESTful web services to communicate with a diverse set of client devices. This is integrated with a drag-and-drop service creation capability in Zend Studio, which takes the work out of connecting mobile devices to a scalable, cloud-based back end. Zend Server subscribers receive full support for Zend Server Gateway as part of their subscription.
"PHP continues to be the dominant language in enterprise app development,” said Zeev Suraski, Zend CTO. “Now Zend is enabling the next generation of mission-critical cloud, mobile and enterprise PHP apps with Zend Server 6, Zend Studio 10 and Zend Server Gateway. I’m very excited about the possibilities this new generation of solution unlocks for developing and deploying amazing end-to-end cloud and mobile apps.”
