New Version of Jelastic – 1.9.1 Launched

| May 20, 2013

Today we announced the launch of a major new version of Jelastic. The new version, 1.9.1, features a CRON scheduler, the ability to schedule database backups, new notifications about running out of resources and the latest versions of software stacks (including PostgreSQL 9.2.4).

The newly launched Jelastic 1.9.1 includes:

  • CRON job scheduler,
  • Scheduled database backups,
  • Ability to individually change configurations of application servers in cluster,
  • Email notifications on running out of resources (RAM, Disk, CPU),
  • NetBeans IDE Plugin,
  • Software stacks updated to the latest and greatest versions,
  • PostgreSQL 9.2.4 support,
  • PostGIS module for spatial data.

Users of Jelastic 1.9.1 get access for each node configuration files and can choose to configure all the servers together or just a specific one.

Our Dmitry Sotnikov, Jelastic COO said, "Jelastic 1.9.1 features CRON scheduler, which allows users to schedule jobs to run periodically at certain times or dates. They can also run programs at a specified time with a help of scheduler, which receives instructions and performs any tasks following derived scenarios. Users can also backup databases or specific tables right from the configuration files. Jelastic assures that all data is being saved periodically and can be restored or reused.”

Another new feature of Jelastic 1.9.1 is the notification about running out of resources. When a user's traffic grows an application requests more resources for normal work. If the limits selected are too low, this can lead to the failure in the app performance. In these cases, the notification about running out of resources is implemented.

Now even more software stacks are supported including PostgreSQL 9.2.4 which provides:

  • synchronous and cascading replication
  • unlogged tables, per-column
  • collations, and much more

The PostGIS module has also been enabled - a spatial database extender for PostgreSQL object-relational database. It adds support for geographic objects allowing location queries to be run in SQL.

Jelastic 1.9.1 is already available through a selection of web hosting providers world-wide. See the list of partners offering version 1.9.1.
