Jelastic is the first company in the world that combines disruptive pay-per-use pricing model and simplicity of K8s clusters deployment in one turnkey package.

Jelastic Inc., software company offering Multi-Cloud PaaS for ISVs, service providers and telcos, announced the launch of auto-clustered Kubernetes package available for automatic installation across decentralized network of independent cloud providers. The solution is designed for automated scaling with pay-per-use pricing model to drive down cost of ownership and increase efficiency of Kubernetes hosting.

“Jelastic is the first company in the world that combines disruptive pay-per-use pricing model and simplicity of K8s clusters deployment in one turnkey package. It’s not always necessary to have a dedicated department of system administrators to manage dev and production environments, nor customers should pay for unused resources during idle time,” said Ruslan Synytsky, CEO of Jelastic

Lack of expertise and integration with Kubernetes technology, necessity to build the clusters from scratch and periodically update them create new hard-to-overcome barriers for companies and their cloud hosting providers.

That’s why Jelastic has launched a pre-configured Kubernetes cluster which can be easily installed with full orchestration capabilities on top of own datacenter or any preferred infrastructure.

"Although Kubernetes is a very popular technology, using it on top of regular VMs in the cloud is not cost-efficient due to lack of vertical scaling. Jelastic Kubernetes package allowed us to solve 2 major challenges for our customers: automation of complex clusters installation and configuration, as well as TCO reduction with automatic vertical scaling and pay-as-you-use billing. We predict a great future for Kubernetes, and are grateful to Jelastic for being one of the first to deliver it to our clients," Matthieu ROBIN, CEO at Hidora.

The package goes with a set of already pre-installed components: CNI plugin (powered by Weave) for overlay network support; Traefik ingress control for transferring HTTP/HTTPS requests; HELM package manager to auto-install pre-packed solutions from repositories; CoreDNS for internal names resolution; dynamic provisioner of persistent volumes; Heapster for gathering stats; Jelastic SSL for protecting ingress network; Kubernetes Dashboard, and others.

The number of worker nodes can be changed during installation steps or afterwards. All the newly added nodes are automatically connected to the cluster. In addition, Jelastic automatic vertical scaling with pay-per-use pricing model makes Kubernetes hosting significantly more efficient.

Send the request to get own Kubernetes cluster powered by Jelastic at one of the certified public cloud service providers or in a private cloud. For large scale projects interested in scalable Kubernetes hosting, Jelastic delivers professional services to assist while migration.

This solution also meets the needs of those who are interested in building managed hosting business offering Kubernetes services.
