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.

Customer testimonials

Winner: Best in Western Europe - Nicereply Customer Happiness Awards

Following a recommendation, we starting using Layershift's Cloud VPS hosting 4 years ago and have always found the service excellent. The platform is very reliable and has never let us down. This is crucial for our e-commerce website which has a high level of traffic and transactions. The level of support is exceptional. The team have very good technical knowledge and the speed of response is faster than we experience from other technology providers. I would not...

Marketing Manager - WISE Worksafe Ltd

In a world where web hosting companies seem to be solely focussed on attracting as many clients as possible and offering pretty basic (at best) customer service, Layershift excel in being able to provide truly personable and fast customer service.

When your business is your web site, like it is for us, knowing there are true experts on hand 24/7 to help when things go wrong is priceless. I have recommended Layershift so many times and will continue to do so.

Founder & CEO - Shiply

The service Layershift offer is outstanding. I always receive quick and courteous replies and the solutions provided actually work. They can count on me as a guaranteed long-term customer. I've already started moving all the websites I host somewhere else to Layershift - I couldn't find any other hosting provider that could do things better.

They have taken server management to a higher level, I am very impressed!

James Millingon
Director -, Inc.

Layershift's service is second to none in my opinion, and I'm sure their other customers must feel the same way. Their prices are very good but it's the suberb service level rather than pricing that's kept us with Layershift for such a long time.

Service quality was a big part of our purchasing decision when looking for a new host, and I actually wasted a lot of time on forums and review sites trying to find problems with these guys - obviously there were...

Ravi Karia
Director - Universal Textiles UK Ltd

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...

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.

Rees Kenyon
Director - Airship Design & New Media

Quite brilliant - thank you so much for simplifying a process that looked complex and in fact was very easy. Thank you for pointing me in the right direction - not sure what I would do without your support.

Your support and service is the tops!

Yee Liu Williams
Founder - in-syte

Apart from the usual teething problems, it's all gone really well and we would like to say a big thank you to you and the tech support guys who are brilliant.

The servers seem to be much faster and it's very re-assuring to know you're on hand to help.

Alison Fraser - Your Name Here Ltd

Victor and the rest of the team always provide the best service whenever I put in a support request. Fast, efficient, and done properly.

Layershift offer by far the best support of any hosts I have used, which is why I always recommend them to clients. Thanks guys.

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.
