Jelastic announced the integration of LiteSpeed web server and load balancer in Jelastic’s PaaS is now enhanced with pay-as-you-go license types, as well as implemented advanced automation for issuing the licenses within the cloud platform. The pay-as-you-go approach charges for only containers that are up and running. In this model, users will not be paying for the stopped or unused servers.
Pre-installed License Manager add-on
Jelastic stated that new licenses are issued for every newly created container while environment provisioning or horizontal scaling, and also updated during the changing resource limits for each container. Additionally, while stopping the environment or scaling in, the decommission of licenses is performed. The company also stated that multiple new license plans will be supported with the 5.9.3. release of Jelastic Paas. It is achieved with the License Manager add-on which is pre-installed in the LiteSpeed containers. It allows license configuration based on the following parameters:
- Workers: The number of workers, which indicates how many processes will be spawned to do general server work
- Domains: The domains’ limit, any domain that exceeds the specified limit will result in a 403 error
- LiteMage: Fast, full page caching solution that caches dynamic pages as static files. This option is additionally charged based on the selected type
George Wang, President, LiteSpeed Technologies, said,
“Jelastic is a great channel partner that empowers LiteSpeed technologies with the next-level automation. Our cooperation ensures simplicity and efficiency combined with enterprise-level performance for PHP applications deployed across a wide network of hosting service providers worldwide.”
