Jelastic, Inc., provider of the ultra-scalable and interoperable Jelastic PaaS for Java and PHP, today announced its launch in the Netherlands through Info.nl, a full-service online agency headquartered in Amsterdam. Jelastic enables developers and SMBs to get applications up and running in the cloud in minutes instead of hours, since neither lock-in nor code changes are required. The news comes a few days after Jelastic cloud hosting platform launched free public beta in Sweden with Elastx. Very recently company was also in news for launching Auto-Scaling PHP Cloud Hosting Platform-as-a-Service and introducing a new pricing model combining autoscaling & volume discounts.
“We are extremely excited about Jelastic’s launch in the Netherlands, and proud to have a great partner like Info.nl, one of the most innovative and technically advanced online agencies in the country,” said Jelastic COO Dmitry Sotnikov. “Jelastic is the only truly global PaaS available through the best local hosting providers in various countries. Netherlands is the hosting hub of Europe, and adding it to the Jelastic family is a major milestone for us.”
“We are very delighted to announce Jelastic’s availability in the Netherlands,” said Info.nl CEO Jann de Waal. “As a technology partner, Jelastic brings us a next-generation Java and PHP cloud platform. It integrates seamlessly within our services and reduces the cost of ownership of online platforms, while increasing flexibility.”
“Jelastic helps us develop faster and cheaper,” said Info.nl System Architect Edgar Vonk. “A particularly nice feature is that it is not necessary to communicate with an API. Using the web interface, we are able to deploy applications and to build and maintain test and integration environments. Jelastic represents the next step in automated deploys, and will be vital for DevOps teams.”
Jelastic’s Java and PHP cloud platform differs from other PaaS offerings in that its key priority is convenience and ease of use. The platform is standards-based and offers a wide range of major stack components. Developers simply choose the software stacks they need, and in a few minutes their application is smoothly running, and able to easily scale, on Jelastic. Setting up and managing cloud environments is simple and straightforward, so that the entire lifecycle of an app is significantly optimized.
Jelastic supports a wide variety of application servers for Java and PHP (Tomcat, GlassFish, TomEE, Jetty, Apache, NGINX), databases (MySQL, MariaDB, PostgreSQL, CouchDB, MongoDB), Memcached, and more. Jelastic is available through a global network of hosting service providers: in the USA through ServInt, in Germany through dogado, in Russia through Rusonyx, in Japan through Tsukaeru, in Finland through Planeetta, in the UK and Ireland through Layershift, in Brazil through Websolute, in Sweden through Elastx, in Switzerland through Innofield, and now in the Netherlands through Info.nl.
