jelastic phpJelastic, Inc., the sole provider of ultra scalable and interoperable cloud hosting platform for Java without any code adaptation, launched its highly anticipated PHP hosting service in beginning of the week. Jelastic’s PHP PaaS which was in beta till now has been made commercially available now. 

Not only that, Jelastic's PHP services which were supported by a few hosting providers previously, is currently being supported by all Jelastic's partners which support Java Hosting services - ServInt in US, Rusonyx in Russia, dogado in Germany, Layershift in UK,  Websolute in Brazil, Tsukaeru in Japan and Planeetta in Finland.

Ruslan Synytsky, CEO of Jelastic said "We are very excited to announce Jelastic for PHP, with the features and flexibility to host and scale complex PHP applications. We’ve made it easier than ever to develop and run PHP apps, without vendor lock-in, in the data center of your choice, worldwide. For innovative hosting companies, our channel program offers the next-level cloud services needed to compete with the big guys.”

The irresistible benefits of Jeleastic PaaS offering include High Availability and Horizontal Scalability, Smart Automatic Vertical scaling, High level of Security and Isolation, Simple cloud setup, Application lifecycle management,  full compatibility 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. For PHP, Jelastic allows developers to use or switch between any PHP version, access configuration files and change settings, and choose either Apache or NGINX. Every key PHP extension is available, and developers can download and add additional modules easily.

Jelastic also provides 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.

You can register to test your apps on Jelastic for free for a trial period and if satisfied, which I am sure you would be, owing to the convenience provided by the platform, you can upgrade to full feature version where you pay for your actual resource consumption and not the instance size. You have to pay only for what you use, 128MB of RAM and 200MHz CPU core is equal to 1 cloudlet, a unit of resource consumption which costs roughly around $0.02 per hour depending upon the hosting provider you choose.

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. The popularity of Jelastic PaaS can be gauged by the fact that since its inception in 2011, Jelastic has been able to capture a user base of 30,000 world over, which is sure to increase with the rapid developments happening at Jelastic end.
