New Jelastic feature: Public IP addresses

| May 10, 2012

Jelastic makes Public IP addresses available to its users

Today, we are proud to announce, public IPs are now available in Jelastic!

So, how do you activate this? It's easy.

Within your Environment topology window in your dashboard, switch on the Public IPv4. You can do this for all containers except those that are Maven.

Wondering what IPv4 is?

The Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4) is the fourth revision in the development of the Internet Protocol (IP) and the first version of the protocol to be widely deployed.

What does this mean for you?

  1. It provides you with the opportunity to work with your databases remotely. You can import and export dumps from your computer without having to login to our dashboard. Cool! Isn't it?
  2. The second thing is remote debugging. You can debug your code from your IDE.
  3. One more thing to consider is the capability that a public IP gives you to use web-sockets and polling. So, if you open a page with upcoming messages and you expect them to be updated as soon as a new message arrives, a public IP is what you need. It is great for interactive applications.
Notice: having a public IP is a paid add-on. It is billed hourly. Pricing differs by hoster. You can find it within the dashboard..

Stay tuned for more exciting changes!
