  5. 5. What is supported vs. what can I do • It’s your IBM i, do with it what you will… • Zend supports certain things FOR A REASON!!! • So what does Zend support: One single instance of Zend Server per LPAR • On newer hardware, LPAR’s are CHEAP and relatively easy! • On older hardware, not so much (Hint: consider upgrading)5 Insert->Header & Footer © All rights reserved.

  7. 7. What do we have at Zend? • Still cooking, but we have Separate LPAR’s for support vs. sales team Separate LPAR’s for each Zend Server version under support Separate LPAR’s for each version of PHP • Currently 5.2 & 5.3 • PHP 5.4 somewhere down the road Single 720 with VIOS as the base OS hosting • Two i6.1 LPAR’s • Six i7.1 LPAR’s • R&D is getting new machine and similar approach.7 Insert->Header & Footer © All rights reserved.

  8. 8. Excuses… • I’m on old hardware and can’t afford two LPAR’s • The IT budget has been cut AGAIN • I’m on Power5 or V5R4 • We don’t have the skills • We don’t have the time • I need isolation between my applications!8 Insert->Header & Footer © All rights reserved. Zend Technologies, Inc.
  9. 9. Reality • We never seem to have time to do it right, but we always have time to fix it… • Linux shops struggle with this, too • In fact, they tend to be the inverse of IBM shops • Don’t think you have to do it on your own? Get help! Reseller – Part of installation Consulting – Third party to configure IBM – pre-order configurations9 Insert->Header & Footer © All rights reserved. Zend Technologies, Inc.
