Learn precisely what Zend Optimizer is and the way it can impact the overall performance of any PHP application.
Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, which is needed to run files protected with Zend Guard - a popular app which is used to encode PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the idea to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a number of companies which create paid script applications, so when you acquire such an app for your site, you'll probably need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you'll host it. In case you are a programmer, you may also use Zend Guard to secure your program code and make sure that your website visitors or customers won't be able to change it in whatever way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer generally perform better due to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, so it is already optimized and will be executed more quickly.
