We are now available commercially in UK and Ireland!

| December 13, 2012

The last few weeks have been hot here at Jelastic! We launched our beta in Finland; then we integrated our platform with Eclipse and IntelliJ IDEA; and now we have launched commercially in UK and Ireland with our hosting partner Layershift.

We are very excited to announce commercial availability in the UK and Ireland, because we've already seen an extremely positive reaction from users, highlighting Layershift's outstanding support quality and efficiency as a key factor promoting us against the competition.

Layershift Managing Director, Andrew Cranson explains why the platform is creating such excitement, "UK developers understand the importance of keeping servers local to their users, but they're fed up with the system administration headache of running their own servers. It eats up a lot of valuable time, which users prefer to spend developing cool new software! Layershift's new innovative cloud platform is here to rescue UK developers from long deployment time and platform-specific programming."

British developers can try Jelastic 1.8.6 immediately at Layershift site 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. Other great features that have been incorporated into Jelastic are automated vertical scaling, building in the cloud, managing application lifecycle, public IPs, custom SSL certificates, session replication and much more, integration with Eclipse and IntelliJ IDEA and much more.

Here's what UK customers say about us:

Layershift customer Maciej Machulak, CEO of Cloud Identity Ltd, comments, "Our Company develops Web applications that have extremely high up-time requirements. Additionally, improvements to all our systems are introduced almost on a daily-basis. Our partnership with Jelastic and Layershift enabled us to introduce a zero touch deployment approach to all our applications that run on their infrastructure. It has also significantly increased the confidence that our clients have in our software. We look forward to expanding our collaboration as we run more and more of our systems in their environment."

Gal, co-founder of innovative startup company PixMix, already hosting on Layershift's Jelastic platform, is impressed with the incredible technical support he got from our hosting partner Layershift, "Any given ticket I opened in any time of the day (and night…) was answered in minutes! At first I considered it a one time occasion, but they kept doing it!".

We are gaining significant momentum as the PaaS of choice, already boasting over 30,000 users worldwide. Become a part of our big family today!
