PALO ALTO, Calif., November 7, 2011 — Jelastic Inc., the company behind the next-generation Java hosting platform Jelastic, today announced that it has been incorporated in the U.S. and has established operations in Palo Alto, Calif. Jelastic is a platform-as-a-service (PaaS) offering that runs any Java application in the cloud without code changes.
“We are seeing tremendous interest in the U.S. following our announcement last month of beta availability with our first U.S. hosting partner, ServInt,” said Ruslan Synytsky, CEO, Jelastic.
“Our base in the U.S. helps us work closely with developers and hosting providers. We expect rapid growth as Jelastic is the only platform that makes it easy to run Java code from the cloud without vendor lock-in.”
With Jelastic, Java applications can be uploaded in minutes without changes to code or programming language and with no need to write for specific APIs (application programming interfaces). Application developers can choose which stack components they want and need including a growing number of popular application servers (Tomcat, GlassFish, Jetty), SQL and NoSQL databases (MySQL, MariaDB, PostgreSQL, MongoDB), and their application will run and scale easily on the Jelastic platform.
The Jelastic platform is also different from earlier Java PaaS offerings in that it will be available to Java developers through a global network of hosting service providers — which already includes ServInt in the U.S. and Host Europe for Europe.
In test since mid-year, Jelastic has more than 2,000 registered developers and applications deployed. Java is the programming language of choice used by nine million Java developers worldwide.
Jelastic, Inc., a startup company based in Palo Alto, Calif., makes the Java server hosting platform for developers and hosting service providers. Jelastic is the only PaaS offering designed specifically for hosting service providers to deploy and make available to their customers. Jelastic automatically scales Java applications and allocates server resources required by applications.
