The Jelastic PaaS for Enterprise

Flexibility of IaaS, with the ease of use of PaaS

Jelastic is more than just PaaS. Combining the best of IaaS and PaaS, your organisation can benefit from rapid deployments and zero code changes, with the added flexibility of selective IaaS capabilities to ensure there are truly no limits.

Lowering your TCO

A complete turnkey solution

We provide everything you need to get up and running out of the box - monitoring, user dashboard, ops admin panel, server infrastructure, network connectivity, service desk support and more!

Developers deploy in seconds

Give your developers a self-service portal to access a full suite of technology stacks, all preconfigured with repeatable best-practice configurations; saving your ops team precious time and resources in the process.

Layershift support and maintenace

Layershift's experienced cloud hosting veterans provide expert server management and platform maintenance teams for you 24x7 to keep everything running smoothly.

No code refactoring

Migrate applications to the cloud without costly rewrites. No refactoring to suit an obscure vendor-specific cloud model. Deliver cloud hosting benefits to your organisation faster, cheaper, and at lowest risk without vendor lock-in.

High efficiency virtualisation

Jelastic is built on an industry-leading, mature container virtualisation solution - giving higher server density and efficiency than legacy hypervisor based virtualisation. Do more with less hardware = minimum cost & maximum ROI.

Hybrid cloud

Enjoy maximum flexibility with the freedom to scale and migrate your apps between Layershift's public Jelastic PaaS and your private Jelastic PaaS.

All the technologies your developers love







No need to retrain your development team in new tools, processes, or technologies. Jelastic supports every major stack and delivers the freedom of the cloud without the burden of exotic configurations or architectures.

Each stack is fully configurable using the self-service developer portal, with ops retaining clear oversight of each user, full audit logs, and an advanced quota & permissions system.

Fair Pricing

Simple flat fee per server

No complex per core, RAM, or virtual server charges. We charge a simple flat monthly fee per physical server in your cluster, and that covers all maintenance, support, OEM software licensing, the hardware itself, network, and all other associated datacentre costs (power, cooling, security etc.).

Starting from an all-inclusive "on the road" price of just £1,000/month for a fully functional private Jelastic cluster.

Winner: Best in Western Europe - Nicereply Customer Happiness Awards

I've been running my web design business now for over 10 years, and it's only this year I've moved away from Fasthosts. The difference is incredible.

When I came to set up an SSL cert for one of my sites - something I've always found painful and fiddly in the past - Cristina made everything so easy.

I was guided to the most appropriate solution for my needs, with all costs clearly explained and approved before orders were raised, and then everything was...

I would just like to express my gratitude and say a big thank you for all your efforts on the transfer of our domains from UKFast. The transfer was very smooth and all issues were resolved during the process. The users have reported no errors and no loss of service so it is a success.

Since discovering Layershift through hosting forum recommendations I've been massively impressed with their always prompt, professional & pro-active customer support. I've hosted with Layershift since 2007. Prior to this date I'd used various hosts and ended up migrating my client sites each time at considerable time and expense mainly due to platform instability & poor customer support. During the honeymoon period with previous hosts things were typically fine and then...

Director - Hex Collective Ltd

Layershift was recommended to us a few years ago when we were looking for fast, reliable servers and infrastructure and top rate support, and they have more than lived up to that reputation. Their engineers are knowledgeable, efficient and very helpful, and often go way beyond the call of duty to help us.

It's hugely reassuring to be able to leave our server management in such expert hands, and Layershift's consistently exceptional service means we can rely on...

Layershift allow us to concentrate on our core business and act (almost) like a 24×7 in-house IT department, but at a fraction of the cost – and we don’t have to make them coffee!

All our queries, however ‘dumb’, are answered promptly and in language that even ordinary people could understand by the friendly cloud hosting sales team.

Whenever there are technical issues beyond us, Layershift expert engineers are quick to respond to our support...

Ever since I started working with Layershift, the support provided has been second-to-none! The other hosting providers I've worked with have been a nightmare! There's no way I would ever want to move away from Layershift, your excellent service is all one could wish for.

Director - Airship Design & New Media

I have been a Layershift customer for over 6 years. During this time they've never let me down and I have come to learn that their fine staff are pretty darn smart. It's refreshing to communicate with a tech support staff that really understands computers.

Computers will always have issues, but in those rare instances their response has been quick and more importantly complete.

Andrew Kaplan
Owner - Walden Pond Design

I've used many different hosting companies, but none compare to Layershift. Great product, great price and as a managed service it takes all the hassle out of hosting.

The technical support guys have been amazing, I've never experienced service like this and I rely on these guys to make my business run smoothly. First class all round, and I look forward to many years of doing business with them.

Lenny Warren
Owner - Warren Media

You know when you are dealing with a well run company, and these people are as good as it gets. Well priced, helpful, highly skilled and really available 24/7/365.

We chose their fully managed service which turned out to be a wise decision. We have made extensive use of their tech support team who have helped us on many occasions where others had drawn a blank.

Julian Deghy
Director - Photographer London

I have used Layershift for our business hosting since 2008. I find their service reliable, their prices competitive and their support excellent.

I use a number of hosting services for various projects but have found none compare to the quality I receive from Layershift which is the reason I continue to use them day after day for my core business operations.
