What is Zend PHP Engine?
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.

Zend PHP Engine is also known as PHP Engine.

Offers an easy way to develop both big and small Web-ready applications at low to zero cost

What is our primary use case?

At our company, we mainly use it for development projects where we need to create a customized web application. In most cases, we use a Linux web hosting server and Zend PHP is then the engine that runs on top of our chosen Linux-based OS. In addition, we regularly make use of different PHP frameworks including Laravel and others.

Pros and Cons

  • "It offers good support for various types of classes, along with many open source libraries that we can readily utilize in our application development process. This gives us a lot of options when it comes to custom development solutions, without having to worry about licensing or other programming-related issues."
  • "In terms of improvement, it doesn't support concurrent processing. When we want to process anything on a concurrent basis, we have to divide it into a number of things, like a queue, or we have to run it using Cron jobs. We would like to have the capability to run any thread or process in parallel."

What other advice do I have?

I recommend Zend PHP Engine because it's currently the best solution we have for building robust and scalable websites. Its open-source nature is definitely the main reason, among others. With PHP, there are so many possibilities to come up with your own solutions, and beyond that, you can also draw from all the existing solutions provided by the community. I would rate Zend PHP Engine a nine out of ten.
