Find out how to save money hosting your applications in the cloud with automated scaling, granular resources allocation and true usage-based pricing model.
Every container hosted with Jelastic PaaS is divided into granular units – cloudlets (128MiB of RAM and 400MHz of CPU). The system makes hourly measures how many cloudlets inside each container are consumed and requests the payment only for these used resources.
You can set up a maximum Scaling Limit for each container, so the resources will be always available in case of load spikes or other consumption changes.
No matter how high the Scaling Limit – the payment will be only based on real usage. The rest of allocated resources will be just waiting in the pool for the application to request them, and it is totally free of charge.
This solves the right-sizing problem available with VM-based cloud installations, as with Jelastic container-based infrastructure you don’t need to guess how much resources to allocate for a high performance during an average load and in case of load spikes.
