LA JOLLA, CA -- January 29, 2009 -- Caucho® Technology, Inc., a leading open source Java-PHP application server vendor, today announced the release of Quercus Personal, a new product designed for hobbyists and students featuring PHP-to-Java compilation for extremely fast performance at a low price.
Quercus Personal features:
Quercus is Caucho® Technology's 100% Java implementation of PHP. Offering the ability to run existing and new PHP applications faster than ever before alongside Java applications, Quercus opens new doors to both PHP and Java-based sites. Quercus' unique Java architecture improves not only execution speed, but also reliability, security, and manageability. Integration of PHP and Java code is also supported natively by Quercus to expand software engineering possibilities.
With the release of Quercus Personal, the incredibly fast PHP-to-Java compilation mode is now available to hobbyists and operators of small sites. Previously this mode was only offered to enterprise customers with high performance demands. Now sites of all sizes are able to take advantage of the speed offered by Quercus PHP compilation at price points that fit their budget. Quercus Personal also features the reliable and high performance Resin Open Source application server.
Steve Montal, Co-Founder of Caucho® Technology said, "We've been pleased to serve the enterprise market with our high performance PHP solution for several years. Now we want to make many of those same capabilities available to small site builders. Quercus Personal is poised to give a fast and reliable alternative to sites with smaller budgets. Based on the positive feedback we've received since originally releasing Quercus, we're expecting an enthusiastic response to this personal edition."
"PHP applications are one of the easiest and best ways to create sites quickly, be it a small hobby site or an enterprise application," said Emil Ong, Chief Evangelist of Caucho® Technology. "No matter what the size though, every site needs fast response times, relability, and of course security. Quercus Personal now makes all of those features available to small sites in a very affordable package. With up to 4x the performance of the C-based PHP implementation, Quercus can make a huge difference in your users' experience when you're trying to grow your site."
