Zend's Z-Ray PHP debugging tool is coming to Microsoft's Azure App Service. Z-Ray for Azure will offer a cloud-based toolbar to help improve code quality during the development process.
"When our team saw Z-Ray several months ago—it caught our attention," blogged Nir Mashkowski, principal group program manager for Azure Web Sites. "The depth of information combined with the intuitive developer workflow made it a very attractive proposition for our customers. Making it available exclusively on Azure App Service—the only cloud service to offer integrated Z-Ray experience—bolsters our efforts to deliver the best user experience to developers of WordPress, Drupal, Magento and other PHP applications. It reiterates our commitment to making Azure App Service is a great platform to develop PHP apps in the cloud as well as other platforms such as .NET, Java, Node.js and Python."
