Zend Studio and Zend Server are designed to work together, streamlining the development and deployment process. From Zend Studio, PHP scripts can be tested onto a local Zend Server and then packaged up for deployment on Zend Server in production. Then after deployment time, Zend Server monitoring captures debugging and root cause analysis information for use in Zend Studio.
The Zend Developer Edition bundle comes with standard developer level support agreement from Zend, the PHP company. All major and minor upgrades for both Zend Studio and Zend Server are included free for the term of the subscription, and specific support response times are defined based on service level agreement (SLA) – ensuring your development processes are always running at top performance.
