Jelastic announced a partnership with Aruba S.p.A., a leader in data centre, cloud, web hosting, email, certified email (PEC) and domain registration services. Aruba Cloud launched Jelastic Platform as a Service to offer maximum scalability of virtualized resources to their customers out-of-the-box.
“This partnership with Aruba Cloud opens new opportunities for both parties letting spread advanced PaaS technology across new markets. Jelastic cloud platform reinforces Aruba’s product line and helps customers manage cloud-native and containerized applications flexibly and efficiently,” said Ruslan Synytsky, CEO of Jelastic.
PaaS is a category of Cloud Computing that allows developers, IT consultants, software houses and system integrators of any size to fully focus on the realisation of applications as setup and configuration phases can be managed with extreme simplicity. A PaaS solution is also ideal for applications that serve variable loads while enabling scalability and high availability, separation of services and ease of management.
Gartner predicts that the global PaaS market will have the second-highest growth rate in the cloud services industry this year, growing at a rate of 21.8 per cent, just behind the Infrastructure as a Service market, growing at a rate of 27.5 per cent.
Jelastic PaaS, now offered by Aruba, provides the tools needed to meet multiple needs, from data entry-oriented websites to more sophisticated cloud-native applications, complementing all phases of the software life cycle.
It is an innovative and easy to use cloud hosting service, with a pay-as-you-use model. The real strength of this new solution is its flexibility. This single solution is compatible with a vast range of technologies such as PHP, Java, Ruby, Node.js, Python, Go and .NET, as well as Docker containers and Kubernetes cluster.
Jelastic Cloud offers maximum scalability through container technology and Cloudlets, resource units corresponding to 400 Mhz of CPU and 128 MB of RAM. It is possible to personalise the size of environments guaranteeing the maximum performance of the resources used without waste resulting from unused services.
Jelastic is provided through an intuitive self-service portal, and its constantly updated marketplace allows the deployment of complex services in a few clicks – such as the famous Kubernetes cluster with integrated autoscaling and management tools.
The Jelastic PaaS offering is composed of a pay-per-use solution with hourly pricing and three monthly pricing packages:
“Pay-as-you-use” requires that you only pay for the resources you need; the price starts with € 0.0085 / hour + VAT per Cloudlet with discount up to 0.0040 Euro / hour + VAT when consumption is growing; storage at € 0.0006 / hour + VAT per GB and Public IP at € 0.0042 / hour + VAT;
Low costs € 25.99 / month + VAT and includes 12 Cloudlets per environment (9 reserved and three dynamic ones), 10 GB of storage included, an environment and an IP address;
Medium costs € 74.99 / month + VAT and includes 15 Cloudlets per environment (11 reserved and four dynamic ones), 100 GB of storage included, up to 2 environments and an IP address;
High costs € 149.99 / month + VAT and includes 21 Cloudlets per environment (16 reserved and five dynamic ones), 150 GB of storage included, up to 3 environments and an IP address.
“The market interest in the PaaS industry is growing steadily. According to the latest report from the Polytechnic of Milan, the Container Management services grew by 87% in 2018 – commented Gabriele Sposato, Marketing Director at Aruba – and this because it is a winning technology that greatly simplifies the work of those who develop applications and software. With Jelastic Cloud, Aruba now offers an innovative solution based on container technology which, thanks to its extreme ease of configuration, the scalability of resources and the constantly updated marketplace, represents a valid alternative to the proposals on the market. ”
