Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, that's needed to run files encoded with Zend Guard - a popular app that is used to encrypt 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 lots of organizations that develop paid script applications, so in case you obtain such an app for your website, you will probably need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you will host it. If you're a programmer, you may also use Zend Guard to secure your program code and ensure that your site visitors or customers won't be able to alter it in whatever way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer generally perform better since their PHP code is precompiled, so it's already optimized and will be executed much faster.
