The HipHop Virtual Machine (HHVM) is said to be nine times faster than running PHP natively.

Facebook has long been working on making PHP run faster, and now the company is showing off a new technology that marks significant progress toward that goal. At the O'Reilly Open Source Conference, Facebook's Joel Pobar demonstrated the HipHop Virtual Machine (HHVM), a PHP virtual machine that executes PHP code up to nine times faster than running PHP natively.

Facebook began running HHVM on its servers earlier this year, and it has now made the code available on GitHub.
