Jelastic, Inc., the company behind the ultra-scalable and interoperable Java and PHP hosting platform for cloud applications, today announced the launch of its free public beta in Sweden through Elastx, a Stockholm-based hosting provider. Jelastic platform does not require any code changes or lock-in, and is able to run any Java or PHP application.The news come a few days after Jelastic launched Auto-Scaling PHP Cloud Hosting Platform-as-a-Service.
Currently, Jelastic is available in the USA with ServInt, in Russia with RusOnyx, in Germany with dogado, in Japan with Tsukaeru, in Finland with Planeetta, in the UK and Ireland with Layershift, in Brazil with Websolute and now in Sweden with Elastx.
The Jelastic platform is famous for making Java and PHP cloud hosting as easy as possible. The user can get an application up and running in the cloud in a few minutes rather than hours, since the platform is standards-based and does not require any code adaptation to certain constraints. Another competitive advantage of Jelastic is automatic scaling: CPU and RAM are reallocated instantly, so that the app never lacks resources, and the user never overpays. What is more, the entire lifecycle of an application is optimized thanks to the maximum simplicity of environment management.
“We are very excited about the Jelastic launch that will be held at Jfokus, Sweden´s largest Java event,” said Joakim Öhman, CEO of Elastx. “We see a huge interest in Jelastic from the Java community and we believe our high performance Jelastic service will be appreciated. Elastx intends to be the Jelastic performance choice.”
Jelastic can be integrated with the most popular build systems (Maven, Ant, Hudson and Jenkins) and two widely used IDEs (Eclipse and IDEA). It supports a wide variety of application servers for Java and PHP (Tomcat, GlassFish, Jetty, Apache, NGINX), databases (MySQL, MariaDB, PostgreSQL, CouchDB, MongoDB), Memcached and more.
Elastx, based in Stockholm, Sweden, is a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) hosting provider. Having challenges such as Big Data and linear scalability in mind, Elastx infrastructure is built with next generation technologies to attain its mission in linear scalability and market leading performance.
