“Jelastic 1.9.1 features CRON scheduler, which allows users to schedule jobs to run periodically at certain times or dates. They can also run programs at a specified time with a help of scheduler, which receives instructions and performs any tasks following derived scenarios,” said Mr. Dmitry Sotnikov, COO, Jelastic. “Users can also backup databases or specific tables right from the configuration files. Jelastic assures that all data is being saved periodically and can be restored or reused,” he added. Earlier this year, Jelastic became the first public PaaS to offer Apache TomEE and launched Jelastic V 1.9. The new version is now available through a selection of web hosting providers.
