Jelastic vs Shelly Cloud: What are the differences?
What is Jelastic? Java and PHP Cloud Hosting. Jelastic is the next generation of Java hosting platforms which can run and scale ANY Java application with no code changes required.
What is Shelly Cloud? Platform for hosting your Ruby and Rails apps (hosted in Europe). Shelly Cloud is significantly cheaper than other PaaS hosting providers. You save money by getting all services needed to run your application from one provider. We run our own servers, so there is no "Amazon tax" included in our prices. You pay only for what you use with per-hour metered billing.
Jelastic and Shelly Cloud can be primarily classified as "Platform as a Service" tools.
Some of the features offered by Jelastic are:
- Set up environment in seconds
- No installation or configuration
- No APIs to code to
On the other hand, Shelly Cloud provides the following key features:
- Designed for Ruby and Rails
- Git-based workflow
- Easy scaling
"Managed hosting" is the primary reason why developers consider Jelastic over the competitors, whereas "Simple scaling" was stated as the key factor in picking Shelly Cloud.
