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:
- Rackspace Cloud Files
- GoGrid Cloud Storage
- Amazon SQS
- Windows Azure Queue Storage
- Amazon SimpleDB
- Windows Azure Table Storage
Simple Cloud API is a joint effort between Zend, open source community and software vendors including IBM, Microsoft, Rackspace, Nirvanix, and GoGrid. You can find further information, documentation and download on Simple Cloud API Website.
