Jelastic, a Palo Alto, Calif., startup, delivers a beta of the Jelastic Java platform-as-a-service offering for hosting service providers.
new startup, has announced its namesake flagship product, which it refers to as
a next-generation platform-as-a-service technology.
The new PaaS
offering is for building and running any Java application in the cloud instead of from a
PC-speeding development time and maximizing computing resources, Jelastic
enables developers to make code changes and rebuild applications in the cloud
, removing the
lag time caused whenever files are updated and uploaded from a PC. Jelastic can
take application source code directly from version control repositories, via
either the Git or SVN protocol.
the Java server hosting platform for developers and hosting service providers.
The Jelastic PaaS offering is 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, thus delivering the true next-generation Java cloud computing.
Jelastic, developers can easily swap test and production environments
with simple point-and-click. The same is true for cloning
an exact copy to test or prepare an
application for production deployment. Jelastic is fully compatible with
existing Java applications and libraries, the company said.
developers have access to support for any Java Virtual Machine-based (JVM-based)
application, including pure Java 6 or 7, JRuby, Scala and Groovy. In addition,
Jelastic provides support for SQL databases that include MariaDB, MySQL and
PostgreSQL. Non-SQL database support is provided for MongoDB and CouchDB.
Supported application servers include Tomcat 6 and 7, GlassFish and Jetty. Load
balancing and caching is done though integrated NGINX, and developer tools
integration via Maven and Ant plug-ins, Jelastic officials said.
Java-hosting platform, application developers have the easiest, fastest, most
efficient way to build and deploy any Java application," Ruslan Synytsky, CEO
of Jelastic, said in a statement. "We provide all the most popular options for
any Java developer on the world's first cloud platform to host and auto-scale
any Java application."
Java is the
programming language of choice for more than nine million Java developers
worldwide. Jelastic runs any Java application in the cloud without code changes
and without writing for specific APIs. Application developers can choose which
stack components they want and need, and their application will run and can
scale easily on the Jelastic platform, the company said.
In test since
midyear, Jelastic has received positive feedback
