Elastic Virtual Private Server with Full Root Access

Note: This document is based on Jelastic version 4.9.5

Virtual Private Server (VPS) is an individual virtual machine, which, although running on the software of the same physical hardware node as other servers, in many aspects is a functional equivalent of a separate physical computer. Being fully isolated and dedicated to your particular needs, it ensures enough privacy and can be configured to run server software.

Elastic VPS provides you with a secure and fully configurable environment for your services and applications hosting, with the following points as the main features:
  • insulation - each given VPS represents a completely independent instance, that can’t be influenced by any other account on the hardware
  • full control - the provided root permissions allow to manage your virtual machine in any preferred way
  • funds saving - VPS hosting is a relatively cheap web hosting service (e.g. comparing to the cost of purchase and maintenance of a real dedicated physical server)

In such a way, you get an instance which is advanced enough to handle big apps with high load and simultaneously ensures their simple administration. That’s why VPS hosting becomes the preferred choice of both inexperienced users and competent users, being able to suit anybody's needs.
