Over on the Zend Developer Zone, Cal Evans shares part of a mini-interview (one question, really) where Cal asked Tim about Solaris as a hosting and development platform for PHP.
Tim will be at ZendCon this year participating in a panel discussion titled "How Do The Stacks Stack Up?" I talked with Tim by phone because I was curious why PHP developers should consider Solaris as a development and deployment environment. Here's what Tim had to say.
His answer was based around three main points - observability, virtualization "stuff", and the ZFS filesystem all Solaris systems come installed with. And, of course, he explains the thought process behind each (briefly).
