Today we released Zend Server 7, the newest edition of our PHP application platform for mobile and web applications. We have thousands of customers who use Zend Server to deliver applications faster, more reliably and at larger scale and the new edition adds many new capabilities to further improve it.
But one new feature stands out from the rest, because of the profound impact it has on the work of developers. To illustrate, let us quote what some of the beta-testers said in the last few weeks before the release:“Z-Ray is a game-changer for me – it makes all the important information immediately available for me, like function call lists, errors/logs etc. It really helps that it shows the proportions of execution time used by PHP/DB/IO/Network, and how memory is used. It provides a great summary of what is going on when a page is requested.” – James Titcumb, Development Manager at Protected.co.uk “Z-Ray will save us a great deal of time from start to finish of a project – we now have the page development information where it should be, right there with the content we want to present. It is a very cool tool!” – Larry Nies, President, NSC, Inc. “Z-Ray has simplified my development processes with its immediate access to $_SESSION and database queries. Being able to view memory usage and execution time information ensures that I keep efficiency in mind all the way through the development process. It’s a must-have tool!” – Rob Allen, Owner at Nineteen Feet, Ltd. “Z-Ray has the functionality I want. It provides an easy-to-use tool for seeing the SQL queries and PHP functions on each request. This will help our developers’ productivity.” – Jason Evans, Enterprise Architect at CDS Global
