Report: Jelastic Rides Wave of IaaS-PaaS Convergence

New report by 451 Research pinpoints key enterprise cloud trends

Jelastic has been profiled in a new 451 Research report "Jelastic eyes opportunity in converged IaaS and PaaS." The report describes a key cloud trend, the convergence of the current technologies of Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) and describes Jelastic's strategy and product portfolio.

The 451 Research report also provides some key insights into enterprise strategies as they undertake the migration to cloud including:

  • Enterprise IT departments are intent on functioning like hosting service providers
  • Enterprises have a growing appetite for PaaS
  • Whereas PaaS adoption was previously being driven by the polyglot programming trend, a new important driver is IaaS-PaaS integration

451 Research profiles Jelastic in the report, noting:

  • Jelastic's integration of IaaS and PaaS matches trends and customer needs in both the service-provider and enterprise markets.
  • Jelastic is now applying its service-provider know-how and selling directly to enterprise customers and channels.
  • We like that Jelastic is riding the wave of IaaS-PaaS convergence, rather than struggling against it

"451 Research has monitored the current trend of IaaS and PaaS convergence for some time," said Jay Lyman, Senior Analyst, 451 Research. "As enterprise IT departments accelerate their cloud strategy, simplification and speed of deployment are key. Platform and Infrastructure convergence can enable faster and less complex cloud implementation."

"We are happy to be profiled in this important 451 Research report," said John Derrick, Jelastic CEO. "Jelastic anticipated the merger of PaaS and IaaS and has implemented our integrated solution, Platform-as-Infrastructure, at hosting service providers and enterprises worldwide. When platform and infrastructure become one our customers see faster implementation, easier management and realize new efficiencies that drive greater business agility and rapid ROI."

Jelastic's Platform-as-Infrastructure is a turnkey cloud solution that can be deployed as a private, public or hybrid cloud by enterprises or hosting service providers. Platform-as-Infrastructure combines the traditional paradigms of Platform-as-a-Service and Infrastructure-as-a-Service to provide a comprehensive Java, Ruby and PHP hosting platform.  Jelastic achieves significant deployment, management and operational savings by delivering a turnkey cloud platform for a fraction of the cost of existing virtualization solutions. For developers, Jelastic provides one-click deployment and automatic scalability of Java, Ruby and PHP applications without the need to code to proprietary APIs.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
