Simplify PHP Migrations and Zend Framework Migrations

Adopting the newest versions of PHP and Zend Framework is critical for improving security — and user experience. Migrating an application from PHP 5.6 to PHP 7 typically doubles its performance. And Zend Framework 3 runs up to four times faster than Zend Framework 2.

When you take advantage of Zend Migration Services, you partner with PHP migration experts who can help you:

Boost Security

Ensure your apps and data are protected by the newest security capabilities.

Save Time

Bypass migration learning curves involving code changes and compatibility considerations.

Cut Risk

Pinpoint required application and methodology changes ahead of time.

Maintain High Availability

Use proven migration strategies.

Minimize Costs

Accelerate migration cycles.

Why Migrate from PHP 5 to PHP 7?

PHP 5.6 still powers significant numbers of web applications. And while you can still get security and bug fixes for PHP 5.6 by using Zend Server, the PHP community no longer supports 5.6 or any earlier version of PHP.

Migration to PHP 7

In addition, PHP 7 is the most important PHP release since 2004. It introduces a new runtime architecture that improves resource utilization and typically doubles the performance of an application that previously ran PHP 5.6.

When you engage Zend Migration Services to help with a PHP migration, our consultants use automated tools and proven processes to:

  • Assess your application’s architecture and code to identify compatibility issues with the new PHP version. 
  • Recommend architecture and code changes to ensure compliance with the new PHP runtime requirements — and help boost the performance, security, scalability, and availability of your applications.
  • Guide your developers in making required code and architecture changes.

Migrating to Zend Framework 3?

Whether you use Zend Framework 1 or a different application framework, you can engage Zend Migration Services to help you adopt Zend Framework 3. When you do, our consultants will provide guidance in architecture design and development best practices.

Zend Framework 3 is an open source framework for developing PHP web applications and web services. Compared with earlier releases, Zend Framework 3:

  • Runs up to 4x faster than version 2 releases.
  • Supports open architectures based on middleware or MVC that adhere to PHP-FIG standards.
  • Provides improved security capabilities including bcrypt password storage and AES-256 encryption.
