Jelastic PaaS 1.8.2 Release Notes

In this document you can find all the new features, enhancements and visible changes included in the Jelastic 1.8.2 release:

For detailed information on using any of Jelastic's features, please refer to the users' documentation (Features).

New Features

  1. Elastic VDS with root access

  2. This feature lets the user have his own dedicated virtual server where the user can install his own software and perform mostly any system configurations and modifications which are needed. After creating VDS node user receives email with SSH credentials to log in remote secured shell. VDS template doesn't have any huge applications preinstalled, only packet manager configured to use most of the popular repositories. Any software installation on VDS should be done by user. Also VDS has light build-in Ajax SSH server running. This lets the user connect secured shell directly using web-browser.

  3. Memcached node

  4. Memcached is a general-purpose distributed memory caching system. It is often used to speed up dynamic database-driven websites by caching data and objects in RAM to reduce the number of times an external data source (such as a database or API) must be read.

  5. Ability to create environment without compute node

  6. This feature gives an opportunity to create environments without application logic nodes. For example one container with SQL or NoSQL database, or one VDS node etc.

  7. Baloon system

  8. The prompts system, which allows users quickly to figure out with the dashboard interface.


  1. Topology UX modification (Simple/Expert modes)

  2. This feature provides the users with more flexible and simple way to create environments. New wizard now has two modes : Basic and Expert. In Basic mode you don't need to think about complex environment topology, you can just select database and application server. That will be quite enough for the first-time user experience. In Expert mode you can select and cofigure balancing, application logic, storage (cache, SQL and NoSQL nodes) and addons (build node, VDS and SSL).

    More info.

  3. Redesigned Hello World application

  4. HelloWorld.war is a demo application that user can deploy into Jelastic environment and see that everything works fine. Now it is not so boring like "Hello World!" text. It tells user what to do next and has social buttons to spread the World about Jelastic.

  5. Sing-up block on blog

  6. Ability for users to register in the blogs pages.
