Why Jelastic? Because It’s Easy!
Easy to Deploy
Deploy Java, PHP, Ruby, Node.js, .NET and Python applications with no code changes using Docker, GIT, SVN, archives or integrated plugins like Maven, Ant, Eclipse, NetBeans, IntelliJ IDEA
Easy to Scale
Set up the required triggers and the system will automatically scale your application vertically and horizontally during load spikes. The traffic is evenly distributed with load balancer across multiple instances
Easy to Manage
Developers dashboard provides intuitive application topology wizard, deployment manager, access to log and config files, team collaboration functionality and integration with CI/CD tools
Platform-as-a-Service for Production Environments
Automated Provisioning via UI and API
The production and dev environments are created in minutes within user-friendly topology wizard, or via API, SSH, CLI. Run Java, PHP, Python, Node.js, Ruby, .NET, Go, Docker Swarm or Kubernetes based applications using a rich variety of SQL and NoSQL databases, app servers, balancers and storage containers with no manual configurations required for installation.
Zero Code Change Deploy
Deploy and run legacy monolithic applications and cloud-native microservices with no code changes and zero lock-in. The deployment can be easily performed using GIT or SVN with automatic updates, archives (zip, war, jar, ear) right from the dev panel or via integrated plugins like Maven, Eclipse, NetBeans, IntelliJ IDEA.
Cloud-Native and Traditional Applications Support
Application and system containers support, as well as zero code change approach provide the ability to run both cloud-native microservices and legacy monolithic applications. Jelastic team provides assistance while migration of traditional applications to the cloud.
Automatic Vertical and Horizontal Scaling
Elastic automatic scaling enables granular resource allocation based on the load level. This ensures high performance, application availability and uptime, at the same time, cost efficiency by paying only for really consumed resources.
Managed Clustered Solutions within Marketplace
Already prepackaged templates of clustered WordPress, Magento, MySQL, PostgreSQL, NGINX, Tomcat, GlassFish, WildFly, Docker Swarm, Kubernetes and other solutions are available in the Jelastic Marketplace. These highly-available clusters are automatically deployed, scaled and replicated, so require minimum efforts for support and management.
Pay-As-You-Use Pricing Model
There is no need to reserve resources, as the platform allocates them automatically based on the current load and using a small scaling step (128 MiB of RAM and 400 MHz of CPU). As a result, the consumed resources are billed only but not the VM limits. There is also a free trial to get started with the cloud platform.
Multi-Cloud and Multi-Region Distribution
Jelastic PaaS is available across over 70 data centers in 36 countries. The infrastructure and local support are provided by the decentralized network of hosting partners listed in Cloud Union. You can deploy applications within hardware regions of a single cloud provider or across multiple using the same technology, same API and automation scripts.

The integration of our development tools with Jelastic platform gives us a quantum leap in the improvement of safety related processes and software quality.Miguel Hormigo, GMV Secure e-Solutions
I can focus on development and the tasks of the company. Hosting, scaling, and management of the whole application stack are easy with Jelastic and I save a lot of time.Falk Wolsky, Mapegy
The main benefit for us is that the applications are no longer sharing the same resources, one site getting hammered no longer slows down everything else. Also earlier we’d have to pay for a pretty beefy server to be able to handle the big loads, now we just go in, pull a slider to set scaling limits and don’t worry about performance.Fredrik Larsson, Dempsey
Jelastic is a community of partners. Data centers across the globe provide the computing capabilities to run the platform as a service offering. You get a choice of different vendors, in several locations and regulated by different government and laws. But you also have the freedom to take your application back to your premises or even to other vendors that support Java.Bruno Souza, Tools Cloud
Control over our environment, not limited like other PaaS, e.g. Heroku and GAE, plus Jelastic was easy to use and setup/maintain.Kerby Arion Martino, DotWebLabs

What is Cloudlet?
There are two types of cloudlet at Jelastic:
- Reserved Cloudlets are reserved in advance and will be charged irrespective of your actual resource usage. In exchange, you’ll get significant automatic discounts based on their number.
- Dynamic Cloudlets are added & removed automatically according to the amount of resources that is required by your application in a particular moment of time (assigned when load goes up and removed as soon as it drops down). As a result, you pay based on your actual resource usage.
The granularity of the cloudlets makes it possible to allocate a number of resources that precisely fits your current needs and will scale with your project respectively.
How resources are scaled? How to configure automatic vertical and horizontal scaling?
Jelastic provides automatic vertical and horizontal scaling of resources, making hosting of your applications truly flexible.
Automatic vertical scaling ensures adding the required amount of RAM and CPU inside a node (container) when the load grows, and releases resources back if they are not needed anymore.
To set up automatic vertical scaling, you just need to open the environment topology wizard and specify the Scaling Limit of cloudlets (RAM and CPU), maximum amount of resources available for each node. The further provisioning of the needed resources will be automatically performed by the platform based on the application load.
The number of nodes within a single container layer (app servers, databases, load balancers etc.) can be also easily scaled horizontally via environment topology using “-” and “+” buttons.
Automatic horizontal scaling can be configured by means of tunable triggers via Settings > Monitoring > Auto Horizontal Scaling. Add the auto-scaling for the required node and resource, set up the conditions and enable email notifications to be informed about any important changes. The rest will be done by Jelastic PaaS.
What is charged and how much does it cost?
Resources are charged on hourly base:
- RAM and CPU (cloudlet resource unit)
- Disk space
- External traffic
- Public IP
- Jelastic SSL
The price for each resource unit depends on the chosen hosting provider.
Do you have a trial period?
Yes, the trial period depends on the hosting provider you choose.
Usually it is 14 days free trial.
Where are located the data centres?
Currently, the platform is available in more than 70 data centres in 36 countries.
Jelastic partners with hosting providers around the world without selling its own hardware.
Every hoster offers own technical support, additional services and pricing plan.
Also, Jelastic PaaS can be installed as a private cloud using datacenter of the client or preferred IaaS solution. Learn more >>
