Jelastic offers a Java and PHP cloud hosting platform that can run and scale applications without requiring code changes, and has extended its global reach through partnerships with hosting providers in the US, Russia, Germany, UK and most recently, Ireland and Finland.
Typically, hosting providers launch with Jelastic in public beta, offer users a free trial, and then launch commercially. Elastx is offering users a free two week trial with its Jelastic beta launch.
Jelastic says what makes it different is automatic scaling, where CPU and RAM are reallocated instantly. With this approach, the app never lacks resources and the user never overpays.
Jelastic can be integrated with popular build systems like Maven and Ant, and two IDEs, Eclipse and IDEA. It supports application servers for Java and PHP such as TomCat and GlassFish, and databases like MySQL and MongoDB.
“We are very excited about the Jelastic launch that will be held at Jfokus, Sweden’s largest Java event,” Joakim Öhman, CEO of Elastx said in a statement. “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.”
