ServInt announces availability of new version of its Jelastic cloud service

/ Reston, Va.

ServInt, a pioneering provider of managed cloud hosting for businesses worldwide, today announced the availability of version 1.9.2 of its auto-scaling Jelastic cloud service. Jelastic is the only zero-code-change cloud hosting platform for Java and PHP applications. The new version 1.9.2 includes many new features, advancements and visible changes.

“Jelastic has been a core component of the ServInt product catalog since 2011 because it is one of the most powerful, innovative and easy-to-use PaaS products on the market,” said ServInt CTO Matt Loschert. “Now, with 1.9.2, it’s even better. The list of new features that users will be getting is simply extraordinary.”

Jelastic’s fundamentally new approach to Java and PHP hosting means there is no need to learn custom systems or recode applications in order to deploy. Jelastic is the only PaaS that can run any Java or PHP app with no limitations or code changes. Jelastic 1.9.2’s new features and improvements include:

— GIT & SVN Auto-deploy: Jelastic users can set immediate or periodical automatic deployment of their projects based on the changes they have committed via GIT/SVN repository and greatly increase their productivity.

— PHP 5.5: In addition to versions 5.3 and 5.4, PHP enthusiasts now can enjoy working with the newest version of PHP and benefit from all of its robust features. Users can change the version of the stack they are using with a simple selection from the drop-down list.

— FTP and FTPS access to database servers: Jelastic has been providing FTP/FTPS access to application servers for a long time. Now this feature has been expanded to all database servers. Users get an easy and reliable way of file sharing and data transfer to and from their database servers in their Jelastic environments, including local backup files.

— Scheduling MongoDB Database Backups: Jelastic users now can schedule not only MySQL and MariaDB backups, but also MongoDB backups with just a few clicks.

— Ability to change GC, -Xmx, -Xms. This update gives a user the ability to configure memory settings and set custom parameters for their Java container.

— Ability to deploy PHP projects from GIT repository with submodules/dependencies added. Select the project you need and get everything else retrieved and deployed automatically.

— Ability to assign an internal IP to VDS components. Jelastic VDS is a full-root-access virtual private server that customers can use for any extra components that their applications might need, such as backend servers, console applications, email servers and backup servers. Users now have the ability to assign such servers not only publicly but also with private IP addresses.

— Search box: Users can use this search box right from the dashboard to get answers to the questions they are most interested in.

Jelastic COO Dmitry Sotnikov said, “Every day we listen to the feedback of our web hosting partners and also the members of our ever-growing community. In this release, we have implemented many of the requested features and changes. Some highlights include GIT & SVN Auto-deploy, FTP and FTPS access to database servers, scheduling MongoDB backups, a handy search box and loads more. We are really excited to see how much more productive users can be on our cloud platform.”
