Jelastic PaaS technology empowers UKHost4u to deliver industry-leading cloud solutions and provide more value to clients
Jelastic, multi-cloud PaaS (Platform as a Service) vendor, and UKHost4u, the British cloud hosting provider since 1999, today announced a strategic partnership where UKHost4u can seamlessly deliver Jelastic’s PaaS to their customers.
This partnership will help the two industry leaders build synergy while offering customers the ideal cloud solutions and infrastructure management to meet even the most complex needs.
“We are very excited to offer these new Cloud Solutions to customers as Jelastic’s platform will definitely help us provide fully customizable environments and pre-build applications, so our customers can deploy and manage complex solutions by themselves.” said Paul Hughes, CEO UKHost4u.
With a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), small, medium organizations and even entrepreneurs can easily, quickly and cost-effectively develop, run, scale, update and expand the functionality of their applications. They can also manage their websites and applications without the need for an advanced IT team. Thanks to Jelastic’s intuitive and easy-to-use dashboard, companies can create and manage their own environments effortlessly. Even the deployment and operation of a highly-available WordPress or Magento cluster becomes light work without the hassle of manually building it.
“Jelastic PaaS is the most reliable and intuitive platform to create, deploy and manage your applications. You can control all your infrastructures and environments so easily. I’m sure our customers don’t realize yet how many benefits the Jelastic platform has to offer, and how much easier day-to-day development and management is with this innovative PaaS solution.” added Will Dashwood, CTO UKHost4u.
As a result of the partnership, users will be able to drastically reduce their hosting and development costs - thanks to a pay-per-use pricing model which solves the right-sizing problem for customers. UKHost4u’s system will automatically adjust resources to meet user requirements, and bill them only for real consumption, rather than a limit they will never reach as in the case with typical cloud solutions on the market.
Thanks to this alliance, UKHost4u will now be able to offer fully managed applications to their customers where they can grow and scale their resources without breaking the bank or deploying an IT army. Deployed in UKHost4u’s data centre, and by utilizing Jelastic’s platform, each user’s setup is completely isolated from others and not affected by other clients, which is often the case with traditional hosting providers.
Jelastic is built to scale and designed to have a high level of redundancy with both processing and storage being offloaded onto different hardware, as well as the ability for environments to be live-migrated or expanded as you grow. This is only a fraction of what UKHost4u will be able to offer thanks to this partnership.
Ruslan Synytsky, CEO and co-founder of Jelastic said, “We are proud to empower forward-thinking hosting companies like UKHost4u to become an advanced cloud choice for ISVs, digital agencies, e-commerce projects and developers in need of scalable and highly available environments.”
UKHost4u’s data center is located in the United Kingdom and since 1999 has hosted a wide variety of companies and websites, from individuals and entrepreneurs to SMEs and Universities. It has since expanded globally and in 2005 launched its Australian-SEA division with a second data center based in Sydney. The range of services has steadily continued to grow and offer better security, performance and speed.
