Jelastic Enables Java Applications to be Built and Deployed in the Cloud

Fastest, most efficient way to create Java apps

Now, using the next-generation platform-as-a-service (PaaS) offering Jelastic, it is possible to build and run any Java application in the cloud instead of from a personal computer -- speeding development time and maximizing computing resources.

Jelastic allows developers to make code changes and rebuild applications in the cloud, removing the lag time caused whenever files are updated and uploaded from a personal computer. Jelastic can take application source code directly from version control repositories, via either the Git or SVN protocol.

Using Jelastic, developers can easily swap test and production environments with simple point-and-click. The same is true for cloning an exact copy to test or prepare an application for production deployment. Jelastic is fully compatible with existing Java applications and libraries.

Java developers have access to support for any JVM-based application including pure Java 6 or 7, JRuby, Scala and Groovy. In addition, Jelastic provides support for SQL databases that include MariaDB, MySQL, and PostgreSQL. Non-SQL database support is provided for MongoDB and CouchDB. Supported application servers include Tomcat 6 and 7, GlassFish and Jetty. Load balancing and caching is done though integrated NGINX, and developer tools integration via Maven and Ant plug-ins.

"With our Java hosting platform, application developers have the easiest, fastest, most efficient way to build and deploy any Java application," said Ruslan Synytsky, CEO, Jelastic. "We provide all the most popular options for any Java developer on the world's first cloud platform to host and auto-scale any Java application."

Java is the programming language of choice used by nine million Java developers worldwide. Jelastic runs any Java application in the cloud without code changes and without writing for specific APIs (application programming interfaces). Application developers can choose which stack components they want and need, and their application will run and can scale easily on the Jelastic platform.

At CloudEXPO Silicon Valley, June 24-26, 2019, Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with expanded DevOpsSUMMIT and FinTechEXPO programs within the DXWorldEXPO agenda. Successful transformation requires a laser focus on being data-driven and on using all the tools available that enable transformation if they plan to survive over the long term. A total of 88% of Fortune 500 companies from a generation ago are now out of business. Only 12% still survive. Similar percentages are found throughout enterprises of all sizes.
When you're operating multiple services in production, building out forensics tools such as monitoring and observability becomes essential. Unfortunately, it is a real challenge balancing priorities between building new features and tools to help pinpoint root causes. Linkerd provides many of the tools you need to tame the chaos of operating microservices in a cloud native world. Because Linkerd is a transparent proxy that runs alongside your application, there are no code changes required. It even comes with Prometheus to store the metrics for you and pre-built Grafana dashboards to show exactly what is important for your services - success rate, latency, and throughput.

Modern software design has fundamentally changed how we manage applications, causing many to turn to containers as the new virtual machine for resource management. As container adoption grows beyond stateless applications to stateful workloads, the need for persistent storage is foundational - something customers routinely cite as a top pain point. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Bill Borsari, Head of Systems Engineering at Datera, explored how organizations can reap the benefits of the cloud without losing performance as containers become the new paradigm.
