Launched in December 2012, the beta marked the first Jelastic deployment in South America. Jelastic has made exclusive partnerships with web hosts to bring its PHP and Java cloud hosting platform to users across the globe. Most recently, Jelastic announced its commercial launch in Finland through a partnership with hosting provider Planeetta Internet.
“Since we launched our public beta in December of last year, we have already seen an extremely positive reaction from Brazilian users,” Jelastic COO Dmitry Sotnikov said in a statement. “We are very excited to announce Jelastic commercial availability in Brazil, with all its features and flexibility to host and scale complex Java and PHP applications, and now with full local service (in Portuguese) from Websolute.”
Jelastic has simplified cloud hosting of Java and PHP applications through a wide range of Java and PHP software stacks such as Tomcat, GlassFish, Jetty, Apache, NGINX application servers, as well as SQL (MariaDB, PostgreSQL, MySQL) and NoSQL (MongoDB, CouchDB) database servers and Memcached.
It also integrates with popular build systems (Maven, Ant, Hudson, and Jenkins) and IDEs (Eclipse IDE and IntelliJ IDEA IDE) is also supported.
“Three months of beta period have proved that Jelastic covers all sorts of difficulties common for this type of cloud hosting,” Luis Schedel, director of Websolute said in a statement. “The results could not have been better, Jelastic is on a par with the market’s leading solutions. We are absolutely sure that this product will be a success.”
Currently, Jelastic is available in the US, Russia, Germany, UK and Ireland, Japan, Finland, Sweden and Brazil, through web hosts in those regions.
