As reported on Earth Web, Zend has announced the general availability of the Zend Studio 8.0 IDE and the Zend Framework 1.11 PHP application framework. Long used as one of the primary languages for the web, PHP was designed for web use only and the company uses the Zend Studio IDE which is based on the Zend led Eclipse PDT (PHP Developer Tools) open source project. Developers will be able to integrate their development workflow with Zend Studio for cloud deployment.


PHP Cloud Application Platform is being built by Zend.

"Multiple Zend tools will be part of the upcoming Zend PHP Cloud Platform, which is intended to help enable a full application development and production lifecycle for cloud deployments. Gutmans did not state during his keynote when the Zend PHP Cloud Platform would be generally available. A key part of the cloud platform will be an updated version of Zend Server PHP application server. 'A major feature that we're missing in Zend Server is critical to enabling the cloud, and that's application deployment,' Gutmans said. He added that in the upcoming Zend Server 6, developers will be able to integrate their development workflow with Zend Studio for cloud deployment. With Zend Studio, developers will be able to export their applications as a package and then deploy it onto a cluster with a high-performance deployment engine in Zend Server. 'As your application load goes up and we launch more servers to deal with the load, those servers will know to connect to the cluster manager and get all the applications deployed to it,' Gutmans said. 'All the deployment, scale-up and elasticity will work automatically with Zend Server.'"
