Cloud Startup Of The Week – Jelastic Inc

Jelastic.Inc is a Cloud startup and one of the first cloud services of its nature based on the PaaS or Platform as a Service model of business. Jelastic Inc is a truly dynamic name in the domain of cloud based industry – it has a global presence and offers server platforms based on Java and PHP environment for both the developers and the application service providers. The cloud hosting platform provided by Jelastic Inc can scale and run any kind of application based on JAVA and PHP – there is no need of any change of code to deploy and configure; areas such as scaling, deploying and managing are automated with the help of a few clicks.

Jelastic platform supports many types of high performance and well known web servers like Jetty Tomcat, Apache, Glassfish, and NGINX, which can support both of the popular development environment based on Java and PHP. Now, Jelastic has started the service of Apache TomEE to become the first of such kind in the industry of cloud hosting. It is very easy to deploy any application developed with Java and PHP; scaling up or scaling down on the computing resources is automatic and instant. There is a very dynamic procedure for the application development Lifecycle – application goes online in just a couple of steps.

Apache TomEE server is one of the most modern and latest technology application servers in this domain that provides fast-speed, efficient deployment and an advance technology-stack to the application developers. Apache TomEE is the most salient portfolio of PaaS service that embeds many features of the enterprise projects like Apache Apache OpenJPA, OpenWebBeans, Apache MyFaces and Apache OpenEJB etc.

TomEE is Java compliance, and it provides the customers and developers with the values as listed below:

  • Very high speed servers compatible with Tomcat tools, Tomcat-ware and JavaEE
  • Enterprise-ready application server for immediate use
  • No changes in the codes – just upload and install through a few clicks.
  • A user friendly environment that does not require any additional training or learning.
  • Easy access to transactions and JPA and also the capability to modify and review the source files provided by Tomcat
  • Tightly integrated with exciting functionalities like load-balancing, persistence to NoSQL and SQL, and replication etc.
  • Automatic scaling up and scaling down of the resources.

With the start of TomEE application server, the customers would be able to get many opportunities and options for delivering the JAVA EE 6 web profile in more straightforward and efficient ways. In his press release statement, Mr. Dmitry Sotnikov, Jelastic COO told that we have been receiving many requests from our application developer community for starting time because it is a natural fit for Tomcat Cloud Platform, compatible with Java EE and fast startup time footprints of Tomcat. He further said that the since the pre-announcement of starting of TomEE, the company received an overwhelming response from the customers.

In the same press released issued by the company, the founder of TomEE project Mr. David Blevins said, “Jelastic’s support of Tomcat has always been top-notch, and their support of TomEE shows real vision – TomEE joins the family of Tomcat, Glassfish, Jetty, Apache and NGINX already offered by Jelastic. But they are not just combining the usual suspects into a platform that is identical to all other cloud platforms”. Praising the efforts of the team that worked on this project, he said further, “ they have put a significant amount of time into offering TomEE users the best experience possible. It is very tightly integrated with the functionality of all the other layers of their stack including load-balancing, replication, persistence to SQL or NoSQL databases and more. Jelastic’s integration of TomEE is the best I’ve seen.”

Application server based on TomEE adopts many advance features that makes it quicker and more efficient from the older tomcat versions – it removes architecture overheads that JEE servers normally take in their operation, which make it lightweight, effortless and fast.

5% Of Companies Have Embraced The Digital Innovation Fostered By Cloud Computing

Embracing The Cloud We love the stories of big complacent industry leaders having their positions sledge hammered by nimble cloud-based competitors. Saleforce.com chews up Oracle’s CRM business. Airbnb has a bigger market cap than Marriott. Amazon crushes Walmart (and pretty much every other retailer). We say: “How could they have not seen this coming?” But, more…

Using Private Cloud Architecture For Multi-Tier Applications

Cloud Architecture These days, Multi-Tier Applications are the norm. From SharePoint’s front-end/back-end configuration, to LAMP-based websites using multiple servers to handle different functions, a multitude of apps require public and private-facing components to work in tandem. Placing these apps in entirely public-facing platforms and networks simplifies the process, but at the cost of security vulnerabilities. Locating everything…
