Zend, Rightscale Partner in PHP Cloud Deal

As cloud computing continues to gain adoption, open source cloud computing keeps progressing as well — and perhaps outpaces its proprietary competitor. Sean Michael Kerner reports.

Deploying PHP to the cloud is about to get easier thanks to a new partnership between commercial PHP vendor Zend and cloud management firm RightScale.

The new RightScale Zend PHP Solution Pack integrates RightScale’s Cloud Management Platform with Zend Server for scalable cloud PHP deployments. The new effort is part of Zend’s overall move to advance PHP in the emerging Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) marketplace.

“This is an open PaaS that is elastic and customizable,” Andi Gutmans, CEO of Zend told InternetNews.com. “We want to enable our customers to deploy this platform on the cloud of their choice.”

Zend’s cloud focus began to ramp up during the Zendcon event in November of 2010 . At the time, Gutmans announced the development of a Zend PHP Cloud Platform initiative. The new RightScale Zend PHP Solution Pack is part of that overall cloud initiative. In fact, Zend Server, which is an integrated PHP middleware server, is a key part of the RightScale solution.
