innofield GmbH is a Swiss company, founded in 2009 in Zurich. innofield core products, branded as Flow Services, include App Engine (PaaS), Cloud Servers, Managed Services and a unique Mac Cloud Server service branded as Xcloud.
“Switzerland is a very special market known for quality of service and security,” said Jelastic COO Dmitry Sotnikov. “This is why we have seen multiple requests for Jelastic hosting out of Switzerland from both Swiss and international customers. We are happy that Jelastic is now available from one of the most innovative and technical hosting companies in the country – innofield. Our vision is quite simple: Make it easy to host Java and PHP applications from the cloud, with no lock-in, and with availability from multiple hosting companies around the world. Jelastic is all about empowering developers and making hosting easy, and now it is available in Switzerland.”
“As Platform-as-a-Service is the next big thing for the cloud market, and we truly believe in it, we have been looking for a long time for a solution like Jelastic,” said innofield cofounder Reto Giezendanner. “Jelastic fits perfectly into our concept. It´s the simplest-to-use PaaS out there, and because it´s so intuitive, our customers are able to set up their cloud environments in minutes. Based on our long-term brand policy, we have named our new PaaS service ´Flow App Engine powered by Jelastic´.”
