Scaling Efficiency vs Overallocation

Jelastic provides a unique process of automatic scaling with payment based on the real consumption, but not on the server size. Compare what you lose at cloud vendors with a different scaling and pricing model.


How Jelastic Pricing Works

Every container hosted with Jelastic PaaS is divided to granular units – cloudlets (128MiB of RAM and 400MHz of CPU). The system makes hourly measures how many cloudlets inside each container are consumed and requests the payment only for these used resources.

You can set up a maximum Scaling Limit for each container, so the resources will be always available in case of load spikes or other consumption changes.No matter how high the limit – the payment will be only based on real usage. The rest of allocated resources will be just waiting in the pool for the application to request them, and it is totally free of charge.

In addition to RAM and CPU, the application can consume the following paid resources

Additional Resources and Services

What Is the Actual Price

Jelastic PaaS is available across a wide choice of cloud hosting providers worldwide. Every provider offers its infrastructure, technical support and different value added services. So the price per each resource varies based on the chosen vendor.

Within Jelastic Union catalog you can check all the prices and choose the most appropriate option. After registration, you’ll get a free trial and during this period you can track the actual consumption of the application and the total cost (watch a video for more details).
