The cache modules that Zend provides have been able to optimize and accelerate the loading of the pages when there was exponential growth in data volume and quantity of requests. At the same time, the monitoring console allowed us to have a real-time understanding of the resources and to make decisions when they were at the limit.Offers a complete environment to develop PHP applications. It is valuable because it allows you to have a complete stack (PHP, MySQL, Zend Server) enabling the building of a development environment, and to deploy to the production system.​Zend Engine is the core of PHP. It makes PHP fast, efficient, and basically, the language of choice for web applications.Zend Engine gives the flexibility to use external modules to easily expand the functionalities you need for your web project.The Zend Framework provides an easy, open source way to produce coding based on the needs of our customers.​Scaling up is an important factor for large projects, and with PHP 7 and its performance improvements, this becomes even easier.​We have not encountered issues with scalability as long as we effectively use caching to optimize performance of our web applications as well as a proper use of database connectivity.Faster web app implementation, when PHP dev is required by customers.

Cons

The process of installing and configuring the product is a bit complex and could be improved.Although it offers a complete environment to develop and deploy PHP applications, it has some limitations. For example, when the volume of data increased exponentially, I had problems scaling the system.The main area that Zend needs to improve is to support asynchronous programming tasks, which is facilitated in PHP 7, but not at the same degree as HHVM.​​SQL queries have always been an issue with PHP, especially if you use large tables, which require caution from the side of the developer.​Integration of MVC with ORM tools for PHP is okay, but lacking a short list of decent ORM tools for PHP to choose from; there is ample room for improvement in both areas.

It allows businesses of any size to eliminate point-to-point connections and batch processing regardless of platform, protocol or data format.Zend Engine is a highly optimized execution engine. It allows modules such as debuggers, performance boosters and custom loaders to dynamically extend PHP for a broader range of functionality. Whenever you're using any plug-in module today, you're doing so thanks to the extensibility support of the Zend Engine. In addition, the Zend Engine provides memory and resource management, and other standard services for the PHP language.
