Zend Studio is the only Integrated Development Environment (IDE) designed for professional developers that encompasses all the development components necessary for the full PHP application lifecycle. Through a comprehensive set of editing, debugging, analysis, optimization, database tools and testing Zend Studio speeds development cycles and simplifies complex projects.
Supported Operating Systems: Linux, Windows, and Macintosh
Zend Server is an enterprise-ready web application server for running and managing PHP applications that require a high level of reliability, performance and security. Zend Server contains a complete, well-tested PHP stack, which cuts the time traditionally spent on tracking, installing, configuring and testing PHP libraries and drivers. Built-in caching and acceleration ensure your PHP applications are delivering optimized performance, and integrated application monitoring and diagnostics enable you to quickly detect, isolate and resolve any failures or performance bottlenecks.
Supported Operating Systems: Linux and Windows, both x86 and x86-64. Supported Web Servers: Apache, Microsoft IIS. Supported Browsers: Microsoft Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari
Zend Studio and Zend Server are designed to work together, streamlining the development process. From Zend Studio, PHP scripts can be deployed onto a local Zend Server. Then after deployment time, Zend Server monitoring captures debugging and root cause analysis information for use in Zend Studio.
