Red Hat and Zend have formed a partnership aimed at bringing PHP development tools and the OpenShift Platform as a Service product into the enterprise.
Zend CEO Andi Gutmans believes the pressure on developers to build mobile apps facilitated the decision. He wanted to give those developers an easy way to build a PHP front end and a Java back end in Eclipse inside Zend Studio running on OpenShift.
"Both of us have built our tools on Eclipse, we have an end-to-end workflow from development to production," Gutmans said. "When you have these enterprise customers who are doing a lot of Java and a lot of PHP, that becomes very interesting."
