Zend Teams with Varien

The all-in-one deal should make it easier for SMBs to evaluate, develop and deploy state-of-the-art e-commerce web apps

e-Commerce Journal

Zend has gotten Varien, apparently a hot e-commerce platform, to ship the free Community Edition of Zend Server, the PHP web application server with the free Community Edition of its open source Magento e-commerce software.

Varien, in turn, will contribute a number of native e-commerce features such as payment gateways and shipping calculation modules to the open source PHP framework, Zend Framework, which is an integrated part of Zend Server.

And both Zend and Varien will be optimizing Magento, Zend Server and Zend Framework to deliver peak performance for e-commerce applications.

The all-in-one deal should make it easier for SMBs to evaluate, develop and deploy state-of-the-art e-commerce web apps with features such as catalog and order management, analytics, SEO, merchandizing, customer accounts and shipping on a Windows or Linux platform.

Magento was developed with PHP 5 and the Zend Framework.
