Last month we ran our first sweeps contest and received over 30,000 entries in just 4 weeks!
Below is a screenshot of the Facebook entries:
After announcing the winner, Bruce Burke, I decided to get in touch and find out more about him and how he is using Jelastic for his projects.
Hi Bruce, thanks for taking the time to chat. What’s your background, where are you from?
I am from Scranton, Pennsylvania located in what we refer to as NEPA (Northeastern Pennsylvania). Most people know the city either from being in the media for its financial problems or the television series, The Office. NEPA in itself is ranked in the top 10 in the nation in logistics so you will see a lot of distribution centers, warehouses and industrial parks in the area....
As we've already told you in our previous post about MySQL master-slave replication the database replication offers various benefits depending on its type and the options you choose, but the common benefit of replication is the availability of data when and where it is needed. As a result, your customers will experience improved availability of replicated data. If data from one database server is unavailable, clients can still access the replicated copy of the data.
Now let's examine a simple example on how to configure master-slave replication on MongoDB....
Like millions of developers out there we really love NetBeans IDE, which lets you quickly and easily develop Java desktop, mobile, and web applications, while also providing great tools for PHP developers. That's why we have created a Jelastic plugin for this platform. With the new Jelastic plugin for NetBeans IDE, you can work with your development, test and production deployments without leaving your favorite IDE. This special plugin makes development of web applications on the Jelastic platform much more convenient, since the developer can now log into Jelastic and deploy the app in the cloud right from NetBeans IDE. The Jelastic plugin is a set of software development tools that simplifies the process of application management and development in NetBeans IDE in the form of projects at the Jelastic platform....
Today we announced the launch of a major new version of Jelastic. The new version, 1.9.1, features a CRON scheduler, the ability to schedule database backups, new notifications about running out of resources and the latest versions of software stacks (including PostgreSQL 9.2.4).
The newly launched Jelastic 1...
Switzerland is well know for chocolate, their army knives and creating fabulous watches. Thanks to innofield, the Swiss will forever be known as the providers of the first Swiss based PaaS solution with their Flow App Engine (powered by Jelastic).
This week, innofield came out of beta and launched commercially with Jelastic 1.9.1.
"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 environment in minutes. Based on our long-term brand policy, we name our new PaaS service 'Flow App Engine' powered by Jelastic."...
Today’s guest post comes to you from our friend and user, Dane Marcelo, JArchitect product manager. He points out some interesting differences between the Play 1 and the Play 2 frameworks. So, let’s dive into this great post!
Play is an open source web application framework, written in Scala and Java, which follows the model–view–controller (MVC) architectural pattern. It aims to optimize developer productivity by using convention over configuration, hot code reloading and display of errors in the browser.
Play is heavily inspired by Ruby on Rails and Django and is similar to this family of frameworks. Play uses Java to build web applications in an environment that may be less Java Enterprise Edition-centric. Play uses no Java EE constraints. This can make Play simpler to develop compared to other Java-centric platforms.
It's that time where we can share with you the updated statistics on databases, Java and PHP application servers as well as Java and PHP version popularity. Last month was hot here at Jelastic: we launched Jelastic in the Netherlands with the most technically advanced hoster in the country - info.nl and in Switzerland with our very innovative partner - innofield. We also have one more great partner in Russia - Reg.ru. So let's see how the stats have changed comparing with the previous month.
Note: We didn't include Switzerland in our charts, because our platform was launched on April 9, as a result, we do not have a full month of statistics. Stay tuned to our blog to see this data next month!...
Every year the Hosting & Service Providers Award, honors the most innovative and successful hosting and service offerings of the year.
The award is presented in the following categories:
- Infrastructure Services
- Application Services
- Domain Services
- This is much faster and takes less traffic.
- Packages can be huge and need to be re-uploaded every time you put some corrections into your code.
- Jelastic can take only your code changes from version control repository and rebuild the application in the cloud.
- In such a way you get the efficiency of the cloud and can use your computer without any extra load.
We received more than 30,000 entries!!! Pretty impressive for our FIRST ever contest. So thank you, to all of our friends for entering and continuing to support the BEST Java and PHP Platform known to man
So who won?
Do you really want to know?
Is it you?
