Zend Technologies and Oracle (News
) are working together
to deliver an integrated and optimized enterprise-class Linux and PHP solution that will be used for deploying and managing business-critical Web applications.
The new solution will extend access to Zend Server and is now available through the Oracle Unbreakable Linux Network, or “ULN.”
Zend Server is designed for running and managing business-critical PHP applications in production. This complete, enterprise-ready Web application server builds on a history of integration between Zend solutions and the Oracle Database, and also includes out-of-the-box enterprise-grade connectivity to Oracle Database.
Andi Gutmans, Zend CEO, said that both Oracle and Zend have a long-standing commitment to the PHP community. These partners have a history of collaboration that has ensured integration between Oracle and Zend’s PHP-based solutions.
The collaboration will deliver an enterprise-grade PHP stack from top to bottom supporting the development, deployment, and management of business-critical PHP applications on Oracle. Gutmans believe this full stack will also ease deployment in virtual environments using Oracle VM.
This alliance is good news for users of the Oracle ULN. These users now have easier, one-stop access to Zend Server via ULN, which helps to speed installation for their PHP-based Web applications. The integrated Oracle Enterprise Linux and Zend Server solution leverages the knowledge and experience of Zend and Oracle to deliver a stable, high performance, easy-to-install production environment for business-critical PHP Web applications.
“Oracle has been a long time supporter of PHP and Zend,” Wim Coekaerts, vice president of Linux and Virtualization Engineering, Oracle, said. “Oracle Enterprise Linux customers will have more convenient access to Zend Server through the Oracle Unbreakable Linux Network, enabling them to leverage the ease-of-use and low-cost of PHP in their production environments.” Anuradha Shukla is a contributing editor for TMCnet.
