The benefit that Jelastic provides to the users is, that it is fully compatible with all major Java software stacks, including Tomcat, GlassFish, and Jetty application servers — as well as with SQL (MariaDB, PostgreSQL, MySQL) and NoSQL (MongoDB, CouchDB) databases. Other great features that Jelastic PaaS provides are automated vertical scaling, building in the cloud, managing application lifecycle, public IPs, custom SSL certificates, session replication.
Jelastic also released plug-ins for Eclipse IDE and IntelliJ IDE, two of the most popular IDE’s used for Java App Development to make it possible for the developers manage their deployments and hosting environments from their IDE itself.
Awards such as Duke's Choice 2012 and Start-up of the Year 2012 Award as a Global Startup are an indicator of the fact that Jelastic's solution has a huge potential. Jelastic, founded in 2011 has been able to capture a user base of 30,000 world over, which is sure to increase with the rapid pace of partnerships with hosting providers.
