Today we released an update to our Platform-as-Infrastructure (PaI) solution. The new version (1.9.3) adds scalability, security and performance features for both enterprises and hosting service providers. We were also profiled by leading IT analyst firm IDC, in a new report “Jelastic’s Private Cloud PaaS Gains Momentum with Hosters,” which finds Jelastic to be well positioned for the future as the current technologies of Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) converge.
Below is an excerpt from the press release:
