Zend Optimizer is an instrument, that is required to run files protected with Zend Guard - a well-known application which is employed 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 great number of corporations that make paid script apps, so when you get such an app for your site, you'll probably need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you will host it. If you're a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to protect your program code and ensure that your site visitors or clients will not be able to change it in any way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer usually perform better since their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it is already optimized and will be executed more quickly.
