Breaking the deployment bottleneck - Accelerating application roll out with Zend Server
PHP has come a long way. Designed to solve issues around the creation of dynamic server-side web applications, it has graduated into a de facto development standard, running almost half of the world's websites. PHP has moved from the hobbyist garage and the halls of academia into large corporate applications with complex workflows and data structures.
Still, with all the pluses, there is room for improvement. Matching PHP’s agility on the development side of the IT department can present challenges on the deployment side. As a result, application delivery can slow considerably as production staff seek and create workarounds to permit effective deployment.
This bottleneck has been broken. Zend Server now extends PHP agility to operations by addressing issues that cause deployment slow down.
