As the Application Management team attends ZendCon this week, we will be sharing with attendees the new Clustered Zend Server Application Blueprint now available on the Cloud Application Management Marketplace BETA.
This blueprint is a ready-to-use, clustered deployment of the popular PHP Application Server, Zend Server. Using vFabric™ Application Director, users can download this blueprint and deploy a fully configured, clustered PHP Zend Server as a service onto any vCloud Director registered cloud.
To see what this clustered server installation looks like logically, view the blueprint screenshot below:
The resulting deployment will be load-balanced Zend PHP servers managed by a Cluster Manager. Key points for this deployment include:
- ZSCM: This node hosts the Zend Server Cluster Manager and the MySQL database required by the cluster manager
- Zend_App_Node: These clustered nodes host the Zend PHP server managed by the cluster manager on ZSCM. Note that this solution requires licenses for both Zend Server and Zend Server Cluster Manager.
