Meet Jelastic in Sweden!

| February 7, 2013

Jelastic keeps climbing the new peaks. This time we have launched Jelastic Beta in Sweden with our new partner Elastx, a Platform-as-a-Service hosting provider. Having challenges such as Big Data and linear scalability in mind, Elastx infrastructure is built with next generation technologies to attain its mission in linear scalability and market leading performance.

“We are very excited about the Jelastic launch that will be held at Jfokus, Sweden’s largest Java event,” said Joakim Ohman, CEO of Elastx. “We see a huge interest in Jelastic from the Java community and we believe our high performance Jelastic service will be appreciated. Elastx intends to be the Jelastic performance choice."


Also at Jfokus Jelastic was mentioned by James Gosling, “The Father of Java”, in his presentation "Robots and Oceans with Liquid Robotics" as a really nice Java hosting. Dr. Gosling has already tried Jelastic, liked it and continues to use it for his project, and we hope that if you haven’t given Jelastic a try, that you will.

Swedish developers can try Jelastic 1.8.6 immediately at for free. Now they have a chance to value full compatibility with all major Java software stacks, including Tomcat, GlassFish, and Jetty application servers, as well as with SQL (MariaDB, PostgreSQL, MySQL) and NoSQL (MongoDB, CouchDB) databases. For PHP, Jelastic allows you to use or switch between any PHP version, access configuration files and change settings, and choose either Apache or NGINX. Every key PHP extension is available, and developers can download and add additional modules easily. Other great Jelastic features are now available for Swedish developers: automated vertical scaling, building in the cloud, managing application lifecycle, public IPs, custom SSL certificates, Elastic VDS, session replication and much more.
