Oracle Linux provides a very stable set of package versions for PHP. For some customers, this choice lack of updated or recent packages required for customized or third party web systems, basically this lack of the most desired new features in PHP.

In order to provide a workaround for customers who required most updated packages, Oracle has engaged as an official partner to Zend Company who provides the product Zend Server.
Zend Server is a complete, Oracle-enabled, enterprise-ready Web Application Server for running and managing PHP applications that require a high level of reliability, performance and security. (See "Zend and Oracle" Data Sheet.) 
PHP applications using Zend Server can connect to Oracle databases for extreme scalability, availability and security. Zend Server couples the latest Oracle Database driver for PHP, OCI8 1.4, with Oracle's Instant Client libraries to provide an unparalleled out-of-box experience for the PHP Oracle user, either on Windows, Oracle Linux, or other operating systems.
