Integration with Zend Server validates new approach to driving cloud computing within enterprise datacenters
MANHATTAN BEACH, Calif., November 1, 2010 -- Morphlabs, the leading enabler of enterprise cloud architecture platforms, announced today a scalable, private and public cloud integration with Zend Server. Using mCloud, Morphlabs' comprehensive cloud computing platform, Zend Server, an enterprise-ready Web Application Server for running and managing PHP applications, can now be delivered at an hourly rate. The integration delivers Zend Server in a cloud-ready offering that is elastic, fault-tolerant and compliant with Enterprise Cloud Architecture (ECA) best practices.
ECA transforms cloud computing by breaking down the walls between traditional IaaS, PaaS and SaaS layers and delivering a complete, integrated solution. Morphlabs is the first company to support hourly Zend Server pricing in an ECA-compliant public or private cloud, providing a comprehensive solution for elastic computing in mission-critical applications.
"Always at the forefront of Web application technologies, Zend is committed to delivering PHP cloud computing technologies," said Eldad Maniv, senior vice president of products and marketing at Zend. "Through the integration with Morphlabs' mCloud platform, end-users are able to leverage the benefits of cloud computing to deliver PHP applications faster, and in a way that better fits the enterprise environment."
"We are seeing an acceleration of adoption of cloud computing and cloud services among enterprises and an explosion of supply-side activity as technology providers maneuver to exploit the growing commercial opportunity," said Ben Pring, research vice president at Gartner. "Worldwide cloud services revenue is forecast to reach $68.3 billion in 2010, a 16.6 percent increase from 2009 revenue of $58.6 billion."

"Cloud computing is predicated on time-based pricing that supports on-demand IT scaling," said Winston Damarillo, CEO of Morphlabs. "Morphlabs' integration with Zend Server demonstrates our strong commitment to delivering practical, end-to-end cloud computing solutions within an Enterprise Cloud Architecture -- while simplifying the application delivery process."
Hourly pricing for Zend Server is available via metering technology built into Morphlabs' mCloud solution and will be available as an integrated solution to service providers and datacenters in Q1 2011. For additional information, contact Morphlabs at 310-437-8001 or email@example.com.

Frank Ding, engineering analysis & technical computing manager at Simpson Strong-Tie, discussed the advantages of utilizing the cloud for occasional scientific computing, identified the obstacles to doing so, and proposed workarounds to some of those obstacles.
The private industry least likely to adopt public cloud services for data storage are financial institutions. Holding the most sensitive and heavily-regulated of data types, personal financial information, banks and similar institutions are mostly moving towards private cloud services – and doing so at great cost.
