A scalable hosting solution

How many times have you heard the phrase the cloud and wondered what it was all about? You may have heard some myths and may have encountered some difficulties with how to figure out how to use this technology effectively. This article is a bit commercial, I would like to give you the opportunity to knows more about this solution. In today’s article, we will discuss how Hidora hosting services can help you get started in cloud computing, specifically through Jelastic solution and why it’s the best scalable hosting solution on the market today.

What Is Jelastic?

Jelastic offers an incredibly efficient Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) cloud that enables users to rapidly deploy, scale and manage Web applications hosted on any infrastructure they choose. The Jelastic platform runs Java containers - including Tomcat, Jetty, GlassFish and JBoss - as well as Node.js, PHP, Ruby, Python and Golang application servers. It's not just a PaaS offering though: Jelastic provides several highly advanced features such as full stack support, automatic scaling and automated failover that no other PaaS can match. On top of all that, it boasts an extensive API allowing developers to customize their deployment process without changing their codebase or even needing to log in to a separate management interface.

Why Use Jelastic?

Most developers are familiar with Heroku, AWS and other top PaaS providers, but may not be as familiar with Jelastic. Here’s why you should give it a try:
(1) It offers a much lower cost than its competitors.
(2) It supports multiple frameworks (Ruby on Rails, PHP, NodeJS and others).
(3) It supports both Linux and Windows applications – giving you more choice of programming languages.
(4) It includes built-in load balancing – making scaling up your application a simple process.
Finally, Hidora also has a Managed Service for companies that want an additional layer of support, plus automated backups to a second datacenter. What are you waiting for?
