Cloud solution for continuous applications delivery with automatic vertical and horizontal scalability, orchestration and management of containers, on top of bare metal hardware
Today, Jelastic announced integration with Docker using Parallels Cloud Server! This feature has been requested by many Jelastic users and also by our hosting partners – And we listened
Below is an excerpt from the press release
Docker, Jelastic and Parallels Cloud Server are complementary to each other. Docker addresses application assembly, delivery and portability; Jelastic provides orchestration and management for hosting applications in the cloud and Parallels Cloud Server offers container and storage infrastructure performance and availability.
“Docker is the best application format delivery ever! The Docker team has shifted the containers conversation in the marketplace to help bring a renewed focus on containers virtualization technology and how it can be utilized with a new application delivery format. By leveraging containers technology from the beginning, we’re confident our long-term strategy in the PaaS layer is solid,” said Ruslan Synytsky, CEO of Jelastic.
“We believe the evolution of Docker is not finished yet and requires more attention on the virtualization layer to finally deliver the promised high density, together with an advanced level of security and live migration of containers on top of bare metal hardware. It’s obvious that hosting of Docker templates inside a VM is not efficient enough and can be improved to deliver the original promise of containers virtualization. Moreover, this point becomes dramatically important if you think about economy, TCO, performance, licensing and management complexity of private cloud and cloud-in-a-box solutions designed for DevOps. So we are very pleased to announce the first industry solution that contains an extremely useful application delivery approach from Docker and the most mature containers, virtualization technology from Parallels,” concluded Synytsky.
Docker standard in Jelastic allows the companies to reach a wider market of public and private cloud customers who require more automation, security, optimization of resources consumption and flexibility, while setting and managing their applications, clusters and services.
“Containers have been a well known technology to hosting service providers since 2001. They are used by thousands of hosting service providers around the world for hosting millions of end users’ applications in a very cost-effective way. Jelastic is pioneering a cloud platform which uses Parallels Virtuozzo Containers to deliver services. The combination of the Docker deployment and highly secure containers virtualization from Parallels allows Jelastic to provide the most cost effective platform for hosting both public and private clouds.,” said James Bottomley, chief technology officer, Virtualization, Parallels. “Our work with Jelastic means that Docker users can now run their containers securely and at high density within Parallels Cloud Server.”
