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.

I was looking for a managed VPS to host my personal websites. Choosing Layershift, I found much more. A partner who really seeks the well-being of its customers.

Whenever I need to contact support, I always get extremely fast and efficient answers. They go beyond merely managing my VPS, by diagnosing possible code problems. Layershift monitoring is always vigilant and has even been able to detect security flaws in one of my systems.

Today I have 5 VPS at...

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

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.

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

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.

Dominic Goode
Director - Bludelta

I chose Layershift because I offer 24x7 service and need total support 24x7, in the knowledge that I am only as good as the support that I receive. I just wanted to thank you for the support that I have received to date, and I want to acknowledge the professional support and assistance that I have received recently.

A brilliant experience and confirmation of why I have chosen your good selves to host my services.

Nigel Billam - Webjoy

I'm so happy that I've decided to move to Layershift! I've been with 1and1 for 10 years but their service doesn't even come to compare with the amazing support you guys offer. I was impressed with how smoothly the migration went and how painless the whole process was. You guys are setting a great example for all the other hosting providers out there!
