Best Jelastic Memories 2015 and Wishes for Upcoming Year
All of us here at Jelastic have had a year of milestones, none of which would be possible without you – our global partners who became members of our Cloud Union and to our clients who relied on us in using cloud services. Thank you for the 2015, that was beyond all expectations.
Happy to Share Our Achievements in 2015
New partners, customers, releases, events – the year is really fruitful for Jelastic.
Growth of Jelastic Cloud Union
This year Jelastic Cloud Union has been enlarged with new hosting names. Below you can see those who already launched commercially in 2015.
With all list of our hosting partners, you can get acquainted at Jelastic.cloud. In this recently created catalog, you can find the required information about hosting service providers like quality of support and SLA, hardware performance, pricing, location of data centers and other options that are crucial for the right choice.
Also Jelastic community grew up with new private cloud customers. Currently our users can install on-premise Private Cloud and Managed VPC within several data centers. It is notable that we were among the first three (Jelastic, OpenShift and Heroku) who offered Managed VPC for DevOps on cloud market.
In 2015 Jelastic released three major versions of the product (3.1, Trinity 3.3 and Joker 4.0) providing new functionality and updates of the current product to improve user experience:
- Hybrid Cloud with Multiple Regions within Different Data Centers and Clouds

This year Jelastic has been actively celebrating 20 years of Java and had really bright moments with Java communities around the world:
- Participation at JavaOne Brazil with the session about DevOps with containers for Java
- JUG tour in Brazil with Microsoft Azure, Locaweb, and of course, with Bruno Souza

Our Goals and Dreams for 2016
Next year we are going to start with a new release oriented on traffic distribution for zero downtime deployment. Jelastic team will keep focusing on Docker improvements, features for DevOps pipeline automation and multi-cloud availability as the main trends of the upcoming year. Also, Jelastic will take a step to open source making a long-term investment in the community of contributors. Have any preferences in functionality that you wish to see within Jelastic in 2016?
