Why is Hidora the best scalable hosting solution based on Jelastic?
How many times have you heard the term "cloud" and wondered what it means? You may have heard some myths and encountered some difficulties in knowing how to use this technology effectively. However, if you're reading this article, you're already on your way to understanding what the cloud is and how it can help your business. In today's article, we'll look at how Hidora hosting services can help you get started with cloud computing, specifically with Jelastic hosting and why it's the best scalable hosting solution on the market today.
What is Jelastic?
Jelastic provides an incredibly efficient cloud Platform as a Service (PaaS) that allows users to quickly deploy, scale and manage web applications hosted on the infrastructure of their choice. The Jelastic platform runs Java EE containers - including Tomcat, Jetty, GlassFish and JBoss - as well as Node.js application servers. But it's not just a PaaS offering: Jelastic has several very advanced features, such as site support, auto-scaling and auto-failover, that no other PaaS can match. In addition, it has an extensive API that allows developers to customise their deployment process without changing their code base or even having to log into a separate management interface.
Why use Jelastic?
Most developers are familiar with Heroku, AWS and other leading PaaS providers, but may not be as familiar with Jelastic. Here's why you should try it:
- It offers a much lower cost than its competitors.
- It supports many frameworks (Ruby on Rails, PHP, NodeJS and others).
- It supports both Linux and Windows applications, giving you a wider choice of programming languages.
- It includes built-in load balancing, making it easy to scale your application.
Finally, Hidora also offers a managed service for companies that want an extra layer of support, as well as automated backups to a second data centre. What are you waiting for?
