Zend Server 5.0 with Faster Troubleshooting

Feb 26, 2010

Zend Server, the enterprise application server from the Cupertino CA company, provides code tracing and asynchronous job execution in its new version 5.0.

Zend Server now integrates full support for PHP 5.3. Using code tracing, it captures code execution traces in production or testing, making problems and errors transparent and thereby saving developers time reproducing problems and "accelarating the troubleshooting process," according to the firm. A new feature is the job queue that allows asynchronous execution of tasks for better application performance. Database cleanups and pulling RSS feeds are examples of tasks that would benefit from the job queue.

Zend Server comes in form of an enterprise product and a community edition. The latter is free, but not open source. Both come with Zend Framework and Zend Studio. The release notes enumerate the changes. The Community Edition is available for free download and the cost-based enterprise edition has a 30-day evaluation option. There are versions for Linux and Windows, along with a beta for the IBM i platform for Power Systems.
