Multi-Tenancy

Flow App Engine, powered by Jelastic, is a 100% multi-tenant Cloud Platform. Each customer server instance is a dedicated and securely isolated container.

Monitoring

You get real-time information on your Application load, Memory, CPU, and traffic consumption. In addition to this, historical data is always available for your analysis.

Version Control

An error accidentally crept into your latest code? No worries! Flow App Engine keeps track of your deployment history. Just roll back to the last error-free version.

VDS

Virtual dedicated Servers powered by CentOS, is an optional built-in feature. You get full root access with a public IP and you can use it for almost anything else.

Fair Billing

With Flow App Engine you only pay for what your environment consumes (Usage-based billing). You can also set your maximal Balance limit, so there are no surprises on your bill.

Pricing

With Flow App Engine you pay only for your actual computing-resource consumption, not the server size. It automatically scales your servers up and down to meet load demands.

Smart pricing

Choose your pricing model.

You have a choice between a dynamic, cost-efficient model (usage-based) and a traditional model with fix pricing (fixed). Chargeable resources are RAM & CPU. They are measured hourly in a computing-resource unit called a Cloudlet.

Usage-based

Type: dynamic + efficient

With this model, the price is variable as you pay only for what you really use. For instance, during the day there is high load of your application (you pay more) and at night there is low load (you pay less).

Fixed

Type: traditional (VPS like)

With this model, you pay a fix price. You always pay for the configured (reserved) number of Cloudlets, even if you use fewer resources. For instance, you pay 0.14 CHF/hour what is equal to 99 CHF/month.
