Jelastic has released an update to its “Platform-as-Infrastructure” solution that combines elements of Platform-as-a-Service and Infrastructure-as-a-Service into a single platform. PaI can basically provide a platform where standard applications can run on essentially a turnkey cloud hosting platform without the limitations of a platform’s stack.
Launched in November 2013, Jelastic optimized this solution specifically for enterprises, hosting service providers and OEMs.
In version 1.9.3, Jelastic adds new updates to PaI including feature improvements in scalability, security and performance. This includes new “garbage collection” agent that reclaims memory that isn’t used by applications. It also features PHP performance optimization, now automated PHP scaling capabilities, and new database and application access security features. And new billing features are available for enterprise clouds and hosting service providers, including implemented with WHMCS billing.
According to a new report by IDC, Jelastic is well positioned to provide enterprises and developers the integrated IaaS and PaaS capabilities which they seek.
“As enterprises continue to migrate to the cloud, new requirements and needs emerge,” Jelastic CEO John Derrick said in a statement. “Developers need a comprehensive platform that allows rapid application development and deployment. Enterprise IT departments need scalability, high-availability and cast-iron security. Hosting service providers need optimum density and tight integration with billing systems.”
