By | Jelastic, Traffic Distributor | No Comments

Installing Traffic Distributor in Jelastic is super easy and it enables Blue-green deployment for zero-downtime updates, A/B testing of new releases, high availability and failover protection. You can redirect a portion or all traffic to a new version of an application, perform ongoing A/B testing by routing part of the traffic to a newer version of an application to compare performance and get advanced failover protection and achieve high availability by sharing the load between two fully functional applications.

cyclos clusterPreviously, we shared How to Install Cyclos 4 in One-Click in Less than 10 Minutes. Today, we will show you a more complex setup of a Cyclos cluster with master-slave database replication, scalability and high availability ensuring redundancy.

VPS with Jelastic: CentOS, Ubuntu and Windows

By | CentOS, Jelastic, Virtual Hosting, Virtual Private Server Hosting | No Comments

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.

Due to the fact that Windows OS is a proprietary software and can’t be distributed freely (i.e. requires the license to be applied to the platform), you can be charged for using such containers (regardless of whether it’s running or stopped). Read More
