PALO ALTO, Ca., June 6, 2012 — Jelastic, the company behind the ultra scalable and interoperable Java hosting platform for cloud applications, today announced that it has launched its free beta with partner Tsukaeru.net in Japan. Jelastic is a Platform-as-a-Service that (PaaS) that runs any Java application with no lock-in or code changes required.
“We’ve been seeing a lot of interest in Japan for Jelastic following our recent launches in the US with ServInt, in Russian with Rusonyx and most recently with dogado in Germany,” said Jelastic COO Dmitry Sotnikov.
“Our vision has been to provide the world’s first global PaaS that is standards-based and doesn’t put limitations on developers and their code. Now, it’s available in Japan.”
Jelastic is different from previous PaaS offerings in that it is available through a global network of hosting service providers, allowing developers and SMBs to find the right hosting option for their region. Jelastic is the first Java host that enables Java applications to be deployed in minutes instead of hours, without any code changes and no need to write for specific APIs (application programming interfaces). Developers can pick and choose which stack components they need, and then run and scale their applications easily.
Tsukaeru CEO Jason Frisch said,
“We’ve been working with the Jelastic team to bring the Jelastic platform to Japan and are excited to be able to launch in free beta today. As the exclusive provider of Jelastic in Japan, we are excited to show what a Java host should be. Jelastic has a long list of ‘firsts’ that it has accomplished and now, with Tsukaeru, it can now add being the first Java PaaS in Japan to that list.”
Jelastic is fully compatible with all major Java software stacks, including Tomcat, GlassFish, Jetty and JBoss application servers — as well as with SQL (MariaDB, PostgreSQL, MySQL) and NoSQL (MongoDB, CouchDB) databases. Whether you want Tomcat hosting,GlassFish hosting, Jetty hosting or a custom setup of your own, it’s easy. Jelastic is currently available commercially in the US with ServInt, in Russia with Rusonyx and in Germany with dogado.
This beta is open to anyone. Already, over 18,000 registered users worldwide are using Jelastic.
