Jelastic VPSMost people choose VPS (Virtual Private Server) hosting because it doesn’t have the limitations of shared hosting and it allows for reinforced security, flexibility and complete control over your environment.

Today we will review how to set up VPS using Jelastic and 3 pre-configured certified stack templates on top of 3 operating systems – CentOS, Ubuntu and Windows.

Virtual Private Servers

CentOS (Community ENTerprise Operating System) is a free community-driven project, with open source code delivered from RHEL Linux distribution.

CentOS offers enterprise-level stability strengthened by robust performance and represents a reliable, low-maintenance, secure option for running virtual private servers.

Ubuntu is one of the most popular operating systems for running virtual private servers inside the Cloud. Built over the Debian Linux distribution, Ubuntu shares its commitment to principles of open-source software and offers continually developing solutions with agile, secure and versatile performance capabilities.

Windows Server OS (2012 and optionally 2008 R2 versions are provided) allows you to run any Windows-based software on your virtual machine with support of popular tools and technologies: ASP.NET, PHP, SQL, Visual Studio, Active Directory, etc.
