Version 1.8 of the Zend Framework now allows direct access to Amazon S3 (Simple Storage Service) and Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) . This allows for PHP developers to easily tap into the scalability advantages of distributed computing. Through Zend_Service_Amazon_S3 PHP applications built with the new Zend Framework can easily tap into scalable web resources whenever traffic spikes or if the application demands more resources than the host server can provide.
Now that I have my blog up and running and have began posting regularly I would like to take a minute and thank everyone for their contributions to the open source community. I would especially like to point out Falko Timme of ISPConfig and HowtoForge, his contributions are obviously devout and have especially been helpful to me. Thanks Falko!
I would also like to recognize Vasily and everyone at the OpenVZ project, I feel that they are leading the way in the open source world with Linux virtualization software. In addition, all of you kernel hackers and other Linux gurus out there also deserve to be recognized for your hard work and efforts. Thank you for staying the course and working on something that you believe in.
