eApps Hosting, a cloud hosting provider headquartered in Norcross, Georgia, has launched its new eApps Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) solution powered by Jelastic. eApps’ new cloud hosting service is designed for developers and uses advanced automation to ensure trouble free operation of websites and applications.
This new cloud hosting service features integrated popular development tools (Ant, Maven), repositories (git, svn), and IDEs (Eclipse, IDEA, NetBeans), which would make it easy to deploy and manage web applications. The PaaS solution provides a full suite of popular applications and has advanced support for Docker containers. Developers can use Java, PHP, Ruby, Python, and Node.JS with eApps Hosting’s PaaS solution.
Automatic scaling would ensure smooth operation of the website during changes in usage. In the Jelastic Dashboard, developers can set a minimum reserved, and a maximum dynamic allocation of resources. Dynamic resources are scaled up and down to meet changes in demand, “with no downtime.”
The ‘pay for what you use’ billing model charges customers only for the CPU and RAM needed to meet demand. With auto-scaling, customers do not have to buy a server large enough to handle peak demand. Disk storage billing is also based on actual usage rather than a predetermined expected maximum required disk size.
The eApps PaaS runs on a “high performance” infrastructure, using 100% SSD storage, in Softlayer’s Dallas data center. Other Points-of-Presence (PoPs) are planned in Europe, South America, Asia, and Oceania, to best serve eApps Hosting’s worldwide customer base. The company also expects to support Windows applications in the near future.
eApps provides documentation and free support, including ‘on-ramp’ assistance for those customers that need it. Customers have full visibility of their usage and billing details for the service via real-time reporting in their Jelastic Dashboard.
