Magnolia 5 Released: Can Touch Separate Magnolia from the CMS Masses?
Since Google recently announced that they’d be supporting PHP on their App Engine service, developers have been trying out various setups to see how well they’d work. In this recent post Gilles Mergoil shares some of his experience with getting a Laravel 4-based application up and running in App Engine. Now that Google App Engine opens to the PHP world and that the 4th version of the Laravel framework is officialy launched, we wanted to test these two promising technologies together at Neoxia. This blog post is the result of our tests whose goal was to have a standard Laravel 4 application on the Google App Engine PHP runtime up and running Given that an application without a database is not very useful, we also tested the Google Cloud SQL service which is the Google flavour of the MySQL database in the cloud. He works through some of the steps for his first attempt at getting it set up, but notes that the seemingly working setup wasn’t actually cooperating like it should. Thanks to some log …

Gilles Mergoil: Laravel 4 on Google AppEngine for PHP
Aleksey Korzun has posted some of the results from benchmarking he performed on various Memcached and Redis clients through PHP. His tests focused on multiple PHP client libraries, both user-land and extension based. As some of you may know, I’m crazy about speed. So when I saw that people were happily using Predis as their choice of PHP client for Redis, I was a bit confused. Why use a client written in PHP for something that should be ‘fast’ like Redis? That kind of defeats the purpose – unless you don’t really care about response times and scalability. The performance difference piqued my interest. I wanted to find out just how much performance users are sacrificing by choosing one implementation over another. He ran his tests on VirtualBox VM instances with the same specs and the same version of PHP installed. He tested various versions of the Memcached client, Redis client, Predis and the IgBinary extension. His results (Google spreadsheet) show the requests processed using each method based on this benchmarking script .You can visit the post to see the graphs of the results too.
