Mosta, Malta, March 10, 2016 (Newswire.com) - Cloudways, one of the world’s most optimized Cloud Platform has just announced the availability of the most preferred programming language, PHP 7, on its cloud servers.
PHP powers most websites on the internet and it released its most awaited version in December last year. Cloudways had been working for months to be ready for this new release and to make sure that all the related applications are working seamlessly with PHP 7.

PHP 7 delivers a number of benefits to users, not the least of which is the vastly improved performance that users experience on their servers. PHP 7 is twice as fast as PHP 5.6. This claim is backed by the tests conducted by the engineers at Cloudways. As it can be observed, the results obtained are quite remarkable.
On WordPress 4.4.2 with PHP 7 (cached), when 250 simultaneous visitors were tested, an average response time of 4 ms was recorded as compared to 167 ms on a previous version of PHP.
On Laravel 5.x with PHP 7, when 99 concurrent visitors were tested, an average response time of 541 ms was recorded in comparison to 992 ms on a previous version of PHP.
After introduction of PHP 7 hosting on the Platform, customers on Cloudways will now be able to reap the maximum benefits from this new version. Developers can now easily deploy a number of open source applications, ranging from ecommerce to content management systems based on the PHP.
