JPC has the same flexible infrastructure as Jelastic’s public Cloud, but is targeted for the B2B market. The potential users for private Clouds are companies with their own datacenters and infrastructure that have need of a in–house PaaS. The JPC will be designed to simplify and reduce the operational costs of Enterprise-level applications written in Java, PHP and .NET. With the JPC, companies will be able to easily manage their IT resources in real-time: being able to monitor and control application loads, high-performance computing resources, secure infrastructure applications, integration with public Clouds and services, as well as having a powerful and flexible IT management platform.
The development of the private Cloud is being done under a Russian subsidiary of Jelastic. “For years companies have had to manage large amounts of computing resources and software. The maintenance of that infrastructure is not only very expensive, but time consuming—requiring more and more human resources to manage that infrastructure every year. Companies have been looking for ways to reduce IT costs, but public Clouds are not suitable yet for a number of reasons, particularly with respect to security. The solution is private and hybrid Clouds, for which the demand is growing quite rapidly. Thanks to the Skolkovo Fund, we will be able to supply that demand with a superior solution to any that is currently available,” said Alexey Skutin, Co-Founder of Jelastic.
Currently, Jelastic has public Clouds available in Europe, North America, Russia, the UK and Japan with its partners, dogado and HostEurope, ServInt, Rusonyx, Layershift and Tsukaeru, respectively. Anyone can go and try out Jelastic’s public PaaS for free at Jelastic.com.
