PHP Fog – Launched its cloud-hosting platform for PHP

Headquartered at Portland, Oregon, PHP Fog the leading platform provider for the PHP developers globally, has made yet another landmark achievement.  Using the latest cloud technology, PHP Fog has launched a consistent, swift and upgraded PHP Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS).

PHP, one of the major languages used on the web also acts as the basis for the largely used web sites like Facebook, Wikipedia, Digg etc. The best thing is that, the new platform is well suited with all the existing PHP applications. They provide a simple one-click installation to some of the commonly used PHP applications and frameworks like WordPress, Drupal, Joomla, Zend and even more. With the ever-changing technological sphere, PHP Fog has given a massive opportunity and excellent service to the PHP developers with their new platform. It has been a hard responsibility for the programmers to maintain the systems even though it was not part of their job. With this launch, it has been made easy for them to maintain the system, so that they could focus more on their skills and be more productive.
