Jelastic Accepts a Challenge from Bruno Souza and Edson Yanaga to Place Jelastic under a Microscope

| September 25, 2014

We think Jelastic is awesome, however we are open to suggestions on improvements and we need to know about bugs, performance issues and any limitations.  We needed an honest and independent in depth review of our platform - the good and the bad.
So we accepted the challenge from Java developers Bruno Souza and Edson Yanaga to go through all of the steps of installation, configuration and management of the cloud, as REAL private cloud customers.  Basically, we asked them to hammer the platform and push it to its limits and see what breaks 😉
Our partner in Brazil Locaweb have provided the hardware and Jelastic's platform and Bruno and Edson will spend several weeks testing every aspect of our platform.

Jelastic Private Cloud

Jelastic provides Platform-as-Infrastructure, the integration of Infrastructure-as-a-Service and Platform-as-a-Service, delivering a scalable, manageable and highly available cloud.
Deliver a private or hybrid enterprise cloud that drives down costs and increases agility. Provide your developers with an enterprise-class private PaaS that enables rapid application development and deployment, without coding to proprietary APIs.
The differences between the first generation of virtual private clouds that are being sold by competitors and our solution are mostly related to the differences between IaaS and PaaS because the current virtual private cloud offers are based on OpenStack or VMware vCenter.
Jelastic virtual private cloud is bringing together the flexibility of IaaS and the ease of use of PaaS in a turnkey package for Enterprises. And it supports both ‘worlds’ – legacy apps and innovative technologies.
And do it in days, not years, with simple (per-server) subscription pricing.
So what will the verdict be?  How can we improve?  What is great about Jelastic's Private Cloud solution?
