Posted by on December 21, 2011

Disclosure:  I – personally and via Blue Parabola – have a long relationship with Zend. I attended ZendCon this year via a press pass they granted php|architect. Further, while Cal Evans is unavailable, I have served as (fake) Editor of DevZone a number of times. Further, before phpcloud was made public, we were granted preview access and gave feedback.
