Zend Partners for PHP Enhanced Web Hosting Programs
September 29, 2004 - (HostReview.com) - Zend Technologies, Inc. (www.zend.com), the PHP Company, today launched its Hosting Partner Program, a new alliance initiative that will enable Internet hosting service providers to seamlessly offer their customers the dramatic performance improvements of the Zend Performance Suite.
By partnering with Zend, Web hosting companies and Internet Service Providers (ISP) can immediately start offering "Turbo PHP" services, allowing customer sites running PHP to increase transaction throughput, handle more users without purchasing additional servers, and maintain the highest levels of customer satisfaction.
Developed by the creators and ongoing innovators of PHP, the Zend Performance Suite is the only performance management solution designed to optimize the performance of business-critical PHP applications. The Zend Hosting Partner Program will enable Internet hosting companies to differentiate their service offerings by providing their customers an easy, cost-effective way to increase PHP performance, decrease response times, and reduce hardware costs.
"Zend Performance Suite users continue to report significant ROI - sometimes up to a 25 times increase in performance," said Pamela Roussos, vice president of marketing. "Through this program we are extending these benefits to a greater number of sites as an integrated part of an offering they receive through their hosting provider.
Two hosting companies, premier hosting partner (mt) Media Temple and SplitInfinity Networks, have already joined the program and are currently offering optimized PHP services to their customers. When an ISP joins the program, Zend provides them with the Zend Performance Suite and an easy-to-use management console for administration of end-user licenses.
By integrating the Zend Performance Suite into its virtual-dedicated (as) Appliance-Server, the hosting company is offering a low-cost, easy-to-use appliance that makes PHP applications run faster and helps site owner protect valuable source code and intellectual property.
"Our mission at (mt) Media Temple is to provide our customers reliable, professional-class network environments," said Demian Sellfors, CEO and co-founder of (mt) Media Temple.
