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.

And Jelastic API is open for automation of the processes

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.

Automatic vertical scaling

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.

scaled horizontally

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.

horizontal scaling

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.
