On September 22, 2009, Zend Technologies announced the Simple Cloud API project for improving portability of PHP applications across all major cloud computing platforms. The announcement attracted much attention from the press with an unusual collaboration among leading cloud leaders.
The Simple Cloud API is a common API for accessing cloud application services offered by multiple vendors. The following services are supported:
The API defines interfaces for these services and provides adapters for several vendors' services. Local adapters are also available for offline development.
Zend Framework Component
These interfaces and adapters form a new Zend Framework component called Zend_Cloud. Each service has a corresponding proposal: Zend_Cloud_Storage, Zend_Cloud_Document, and Zend_Cloud_Queue .
All development is currently carried out in the Zend Framework laboratory. All bug reports and comments will be collected on the proposal pages until the API is approved for inclusion in Zend Framework.
