As many of you know, ServInt is in the midst of a beta test of the Jelastic Java cloud platform. Jelastic is a platform as a service offering that allows web developers to build and implement scalable Java applications in a cloud environment. It’s been a few months since the beta began and we thought we’d give you an update.
The beta test is a time when customers can take this new technology out for a spin to see what it can do. And in so doing, these customers allow the Jelastic team and ServInt to test the platform in real-world conditions. From the start, we’ve been impressed with the performance of Jelastic. The product is continually improving and the Jelastic team have been posting fixes to discovered issues very quickly. The product and the team have exceeded our expectations at every turn.
Since the beta has begun, we’ve had an incredible surge in usage with over 50 new customers per day. And they are really putting Jelastic through its paces.
Through it all, the Jelastic team has been adding features all the time. Just before the holidays, they announced the exciting addition of Apache CouchDB to Jelastic. Apache CouchDB allows for reliable database replication and scaling across multiple server locations, something ServInt is positioned for, with its east coast and west coast data centers.
As we look towards the end of the beta a little later this year, we are excited to be making final preparations to officially add Jelastic to our suite of hosting solutions. Check back soon for more details.
