mirantisThe leaders in cloud computing platform providers, Canonical and Mirantis would jointly offer highly secure, robust and fully supported private cloud platforms to their enterprise customers.

GREATRESPONDER.COM – This was announced by the two market leading open source platform providers in the domain of cloud computing business – Mirantis and Canonical – on June 4, 2014 that they are going to establish a business partnership to help the enterprises to adopt the private cloud solutions based on the product portfolios of the company. It is important to note that Canonical is the commercial sponsor of the Ubuntu open source platform for cloud computing business, and the Mirantis is an OpenStack cloud platform evangelist company.

canonicalIt was further informed through an official statement that both of the companies will invest largely in the development and testing of the highly reliable cloud computing platforms based on the OpenStack and Ubuntu Linux version of the operating system. This investment would be used to provide the most secure, seamless, reliable, fully supported and highly featured cloud based service portfolio that fully matches the requirements of the enterprises for their private cloud solutions.

The statement further anticipated that this collaboration of the two major companies in the domain of open source cloud computing domain of business would help increase the enterprise OpenStack adoption in this domain of information technology.

While providing the details of this collaboration, the VP of Cloud Alliances at Canonical, Mr. John Zannos said, “As the leading provider of scale out and open cloud solutions we are committed to interoperability and freedom from vendor lock-in. We support Ubuntu in the Ubuntu OpenStack distribution and, as part of this strategic relationship with Mirantis, will support Ubuntu in Mirantis OpenStack. This collaboration will further encourage adoption of OpenStack in the enterprise, and working together is a testament to our belief in interoperability and customer choice.”

Meanwhile, the co-founder and CMO at Mirantis, Mr. Boris Renski maintained that, “As OpenStack adoption moves from proof of concept trials and pilots into production, offering support for operating systems becomes critical.

Cloud Hosting Provider Jelastic Launches with Elastx a Free Public Beta in Sweden

Cloud Hosting Provider Jelastic Launches with Elastx a Free Public Beta in Sweden on Feb.09, 2013:  Jelastic Cloud Hosting, the company behind the ultra-scalable and interoperable Java and PHP hosting platform for cloud applications, announced the launch of its free public beta in Sweden through Elastx, a Stockholm-based web hosting provider. Jelastic platform does not require any code changes or lock-in, and is able to run any Java or PHP application.

“We are very excited about the Jelastic launch that will be held at Jfokus, Sweden’s largest Java event,” said Joakim Öhman, CEO of Elastx. “We see a huge interest in Jelastic from the Java community and we believe our high performance Jelastic service will be appreciated. Elastx intends to be the Jelastic performance choice.”

The Jelastic platform is famous for making Java and PHP cloud hosting as easy as possible. The user can get an application up and running in the cloud in a few minutes rather than hours, since the platform is standards-based and does not require any code adaptation to certain constraints. Another competitive advantage of Jelastic is automatic scaling: CPU and RAM are reallocated instantly, so that the app never lacks resources, and the user never overpays. What is more, the entire lifecycle of an application is optimized thanks to the maximum simplicity of environment management.

At Jfokus Jelastic was mentioned by James Gosling, “The Father of Java,” in his presentation “Robots and Oceans with Liquid Robotics” as a really nice Java hosting. Gosling has chosen Jelastic for his project and confessed himself to be its happy user.

Jelastic can be integrated with the most popular build systems (Maven, Ant, Hudson and Jenkins) and two widely used IDEs (Eclipse and IDEA). It supports a wide variety of application servers for Java and PHP (Tomcat, GlassFish, Jetty, Apache, NGINX), databases (MySQL, MariaDB, PostgreSQL, CouchDB, MongoDB), Memcached and more.

Currently, Jelastic is available in the USA with ServInt, in Russia with RusOnyx, in Germany with dogado, in Japan with Tsukaeru, in Finland with Planeetta, in the UK and Ireland with Layershift, in Brazil with Websolute and now in Sweden with Elastx.
