Finland has one of the most vital development and start-up scenes in Europe and we are extremely pleased with the results of the Jelastic beta that Planeetta has been offering in the country. Now Jelastic is fully available for commercial use in the Finnish market. Planeetta is one of the most advanced hosting companies in the country, and we are proud to have them offer Jelastic in Finland.
“Jelastic brings us game-changing advantage for new customer acquisition,” said Planeetta Internet CEO Lauri Kasti, “As nearly every hosting company is offering IaaS in one way or another, it is vital for a hosting company like Planeetta to be able to differentiate itself from the rest of the market. And with Jelastic’s unique business model, we are also starting to get customers from abroad, which multiplies our opportunities.”
Thanks to this convenience and ease of use, Jelastic has gotten an enthusiastic reception from Planeetta customers. “In my over 10 years’ experience in the hosting market, it has been never been so easy to get meetings with software and technical executives,” said Planeetta’s Kasti. “For the first 100 companies I have toured in these last two months, each of them seem to really love Jelastic. During the beta period, customers opened hundreds of environments built with thousands of hosted virtual servers. The biggest issue raised by beta users was: “When will you go commercial? I am very happy that we are now there.”
The Jelastic platform provides Finnish developers with all major Java software stacks, including Tomcat, GlassFish, and Jetty application servers, as well as with SQL (MariaDB, PostgreSQL, MySQL) and NoSQL (MongoDB, CouchDB) databases. For PHP developers it also allows to switch between PHP versions, access their configuration files and change their settings. And it lets developers choose either Apache or NGINX as their application server. All key PHP extensions are available, and additional modules can be easily added.
Already, over 35,000 users around the globe are using Jelastic. Become a part of our big family today!
