Jelastic, Inc., provider of an ultra-scalable and interoperable Java and PHP cloud hosting platform, today announced the launch of Beta 1.9 service in Switzerland in partnership with innofield GmbH, a local hosting provider. Jelastic is a standards-based platform that can run any Java or PHP application without any lock-in or code adaptation.

“Switzerland is a very special market known for quality of service and security,” said Jelastic COO Dmitry Sotnikov. “This is why we have seen multiple requests for Jelastic hosting out of Switzerland from both Swiss and international customers. We are happy that Jelastic is now available from one of the most innovative and technical hosting companies in the country – innofield. Our vision is quite simple: Make it easy to host Java and PHP applications from the cloud, with no lock-in, and with availability from multiple hosting companies around the world. Jelastic is all about empowering developers and making hosting easy, and now it is available in Switzerland.”

“As Platform-as-a-Service is the next big thing for the cloud market, and we truly believe in it, we have been looking for a long time for a solution like Jelastic,” said innofield cofounder Reto Giezendanner. “Jelastic fits perfectly into our concept. It´s the simplest-to-use PaaS out there, and because it´s so intuitive, our customers are able to set up their cloud environments in minutes. Based on our long-term brand policy, we have named our new PaaS service ´Flow App Engine powered by Jelastic´.”

Jelastic is known for its innovative approach to cloud hosting, which enables it to run virtually any Java or PHP application. Unlike other PaaS offerings, Jelastic does not require any code changes. Moreover, installation and configuration are significantly simplified and automated. Users can set up cloud environments in seconds, choose any of the major software stacks, and enjoy the auto-scaling feature that saves them time and money. Jelastic represents a breakthrough in cloud hosting, and in 2012 the Java community recognized it with its highest prize – the Duke´s Choice Award.

Jelastic supports a wide variety of application servers for Java and PHP (Tomcat, GlassFish, TomEE, Jetty, Apache, NGINX), databases (MySQL, MariaDB, PostgreSQL, CouchDB, MongoDB), Memcached and more.

Currently Jelastic is available in the USA through ServInt, in Germany through dogado, in Russia through Rusonyx, in Japan through Tsukaeru, in Finland through Planeetta, in the UK and Ireland through Layershift, in Brazil through Websolute, in the Netherlands through, in Sweden through Elastx and now in Switzerland through innofield.
