Zend by Perforce Releases ZendHQ, Adding Observability Tooling to its PHP Runtime Product ZendPHP
New release allows users to proactively monitor the health and performance of their PHP applications, solving production issues before they affect users
MINNEAPOLIS, June 9, 2022 – Perforce Software, a provider of solutions to enterprise teams requiring productivity, visibility, and scale along the development lifecycle, today announced the release of ZendHQ, adding observability tooling to ZendPHP.
PHP powers business critical applications and APIs, where errors and downtime can cost a business its reputation, its customers, and its finances. Additionally, PHP applications are increasingly complex, requiring modern DevOps practices such as containerization and orchestration.
The Perforce 2022 PHP Landscape Report showed that adoption of modern DevOps practices is trending upward at a dramatic rate. Businesses need tooling to ensure that their applications run smoothly in these environments, as well as the ability to pinpoint and correct production issues.
ZendPHP is a PHP runtime from Zend that was designed from the ground up to accommodate cloud and container orchestration paradigms, and ZendHQ now provides the observability tooling required by modern DevOps teams.
“The release of the ZendHQ feature is about evolving our product line to align with DevOps trends in the PHP ecosystem,” says Matthew Weier O’Phinney, Product Manager at Zend.
ZendPHP makes containerization and orchestration with PHP simpler by providing runtimes, long term support, security updates, and better performance for multiple PHP versions on Linux and IBM i. ZendHQ adds extensions to ZendPHP for monitoring, including a graphical interface and dashboards for viewing, configuring, and drilling down into events. Users can configure ZendHQ to notify other integrations via webhooks, further extending the capabilities.
“This observability tooling helps teams understand the health of their applications, including their individual services. It not only highlights potential issues, but also helps identify root causes – allowing you to pinpoint and fix the issue to avoid reoccurrence,” continues Weier O’Phinney.
