The Zend Blueprint for Continuous Delivery provides practical best practices to help companies implement each step of the continuous delivery cycle. Based on the Zend Server platform, the blueprint provides an easy way to implement these best practices through a series of patterns and plug-ins.

About vCloud Automation Center

VMware vCloud Automation Center, part of VMware vCloud® Suite, provides a flexible solution for automating the end-to-end delivery and management of infrastructure and application services leveraging existing infrastructure, tools and processes. You can model services once and deploy across multi-vendor private, public and hybrid clouds, and provide on-demand self-service access to infrastructure and application services.

Nagios is a powerful open source system and network monitoring system that provides you with instant awareness of your organization's mission-critical IT infrastructure. Nagios allows you to detect and repair problems and mitigate future issues before they affect end-users and customers.

Zend Server Continuous Delivery Platform

Zend Server equips development and operations teams with the infrastructure and insight to support rapid application releases, and provides PHP applications with capabilities that ensure high levels of reliability, performance and security, both on-premise and in the cloud.






About the Zend Pattern

This Zend Pattern is a Zend Server blueprint for use with vCloud Automation Center. It enables the automation of the installation, bootstrapping, and cluster management (including auto scaling) of Zend Server on private, public, and hybrid clouds.

Why Use the Zend Pattern?

Maintaining a consistent highly available environment is key for successful application deployment and ongoing operation. Zend Server ensures configuration consistency across a cluster. When adding a server to a cluster, Zend Server will automatically change its settings to match all other servers in the cluster. Zend Server monitors all servers within a cluster and alerts on any application errors, performance issues or configuration changes, so you can act quickly to prevent issues.
