OS Centos 7


Jelastic PaaS Lite Edition is a dedicated Platform-as-a-Service automatically installed on top of DigitalOcean to speed up applications deployment, simplify infrastructure management and reduce hosting costs.

The common use case for the lightweight PaaS is creating a dedicated Platform-as-a-Service for small and medium businesses: self-employments, new entrepreneurships, startups, small e-commerce, media and gaming projects, etc.

Features Supported by Detailed Documentation

Jelastic PaaS Lite Edition is provided with a single point of management for cluster admins, including possibilities to set up quotas and access rules, adjust templates and add new packages to the marketplace, monitor and extend infrastructure by demand.

The platform helps to eliminate complexity of infrastructure management, accelerate time to market, and ensure cloud cost efficiency.

Jelastic PaaS Droplet/VM Size Requirements

The minimum recommended size for Jelastic PaaS LE installation is 100 GB disk space, 8 GB RAM, and 4 CPU cores. However, based on your needs, you can select droplet of various capacities:

  • 8 GB RAM - for initial setup and small projects.
  • 16GB+ RAM - for production environments with medium load.
  • 32GB+ RAM - for large size development and production environments.

Jelastic PaaS Lite Edition Licensing

After registration, you get a free trial license for running Jelastic PaaS LE on up to 10 nodes (Max 64 GB RAM each) for 30 days. As a result, you are paying only for DigitalOcean Droplets but not for the Jelastic license. Afterward, the license will cost 50% of the chosen server's price. For example, if you have the 8 GB droplet (minimum requirement) for $40, Jelastic license cost is 0.5 * 40 = $20. The total cost of the installation 40 + 20 = $60.

Upgrade to Business or Enterprise Jelastic Editions

In order to get an extended list of features and 24/7 support, you can upgrade the platform to Business or Enterprise Editions. Compare the functionality available within each option and request the upgrade based on your project needs.
Also, you can purchase additional Premium Support plans for your Jelastic Lite Edition installation on the DigitalOcean.

  curl -X POST -H 'Content-Type: application/json' \
       -H 'Authorization: Bearer '$TOKEN'' -d \
      '{"name":"choose_a_name","region":"sfo2","size":"s-2vcpu-4gb","image":"jelastic-jelasticpaas-7"}' \
