Provider of enterprise-level managed hosting platforms ServInt is gearing up for the major upcoming launch of Jelastic, its new cloud-based Java hosting platform, by releasing early information about the solution's pricing structure.
The new platform will be the first Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) to offer customers pay-as-you-go pricing options and utilize the Java development environment. This means that developers won't need any special coding to create applications with Jelastic; instead, they can simply click on a button to set up Java apps with automatic scaling in just a few seconds.
In addition, Jelastic will automatically install, configure and interconnect server instances with a wide range of industry-standard software stacks.
Jelastic's auto-scaling model should be attractive to customers used to typical cloud pricing structures that come in a per-machine model that requires a lot of planning and near-constant monitoring. Jelastic, on the other hand, will only charge customers for the amount of memory and CPU that their Java app(s) consume, which helpsminimize costs during periods of slow user activity, while maximizing speed, efficiency and uptime during peak intervals; and all of this happens without needing any customer intervention.
The Jelastic solution has been in beta testing since November. Current plans are to officially launch the solution in March with a free two-week trial period.
