Deploy PHP-based apps

Advanced PHP 5.x, 7.0 and 7.1 support

An modern Cloud Platform for PHP apps

Unispace supports PHP 7.0 as well as PHP 5.4, 5.5 and 5.6. If you develop using Symfony, Laravel or HHVM – Unispace gives you simple ways to design for microservices and scaling. Unispace runs your PHP applications inside a container which provides a modern stack with your choice of web servers Apache or Nginx. You can also use your favorite databases and caches such as MySQL server, MariaDB, Percona, PostgreSQL, MongoDB, Redis or Memcached. Your apps can be secured using custom SSL certificates or free Let’s Encrypt.

                            

High availability & agile scaling

Unispace allows you to start your PHP apps fast & iterate fast, and gives you a true platform on which you can scale. If your PHP web applications experience traffic spikes – just add a dedicated load balancer to your cloud environment to distribute requests across multiple horizontally scaled servers. This will increase application performance and high availability. We provide sticky sessions by default, but you can also use WebSockets or TCP load balancing if needed.

Monitoring

Unispace built-in monitoring system can send you notifications once a PHP instance becomes overloaded. Advanced monitoring use cases are covered by add-ons such as NewRelic or NGINX Amplify that can be applied to your PHP cloud servers with 1-click. NGINX Amplify is a free of charge SaaS monitoring solution for NGINX-based web servers and load balancers.

Custom PHP extensions

PHP stack includes the most commonly used PHP extensions precompiled, if you need to use them, activate them by just uncommenting them in the php.ini file. Our support team can also compile custom PHP extensions that are needed by your project on request.

Change PHP version in runtime

PHP runtime up to date is vital for your applications at least for security reasons. Unispace supports you, providing 1-click upgrade or downgrade of PHP versions. So if a new PHP version is released, a hassle-free upgrade can be performed, if the PHP version upgrade was not smooth, the previous version can always be rolled back.

Redeployment & Zero downtime

takes care of your applications’ uptime and enables zero downtime redeployment of PHP applications even if you have only a single node. This technology allows to co-exist simultaneously both old and new versions of your application. Existing requests/user sessions are fully handled by your old code; new requests are serviced by the new code.

Persistent filesystem

Unispace allows you to use a persistent filesystem. It means that there is no need to rewrite your application to adapt it to the cloud, and the files you have written will be available even after a reboot. If some files should be replicated across different containers – you can easily achieve that using file synchronization add-on.

Flexible server configuration

With Unispace you can change server configuration like php.ini, httpd.conf, nginx.conf, my.cnf to your specific requirements. In addition, Unispace Cloud supports standard Linux crontab which frees you from exhausting job scheduling workarounds.
