Zend Optimizer is an instrument, that's needed to execute files protected with Zend Guard - a popular app that is used to encode PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the objective to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by lots of companies that create paid script apps, so when you obtain such an app for your site, you'll most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you'll host it. In case you're a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to secure your code and ensure that your site visitors or customers will not be able to change it in any way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer often perform better owing to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, thus it's already optimized and will be executed faster.
