Common PHP Based Interface For Cloud Services

The Simple Cloud API is an open source project providing common PHP interfaces for File Storage, Document Storage, and Simple Queue cloud services. It will enable you to easily connect your application with a new service without having to learn their specific API. Primarily developed as a new Zend Framework component called ‘Zend_Cloud’, you can use it independently of Zend Framework.

Presently Simple Cloud API provides adapters for Amazon S3, Windows Azure Blob Storage, Nirvanix and Local Storage API. The project is under development and have plans to include more vendors and services in the future.

Following adapters will be available in next few months:

  • GoGrid Cloud Storage

Document Storage

  • Windows Azure Queue Storage
  • Local

Simple Queue
