The end-users are connected to the Jelastic Cluster indirectly by using applications deployed to the Jelastic environments created by developers or SMBs or enterprise developers. All of the incoming users’ requests are sent to the domain name of an appropriate application and are processed in one of the following ways:
via Global Resolvers
Jelastic uses several synchronized Resolvers for receiving requests simultaneously. As a result, there can be several entry points for environments used at the same time.
via Public IP if it is attached to the entry point of the environment (balancer, app server or database container). This solution provides less risk of being affected by other applications (as in the case with shared Resolvers) and is recommended for production applications. Also Public IP usage makes more features available such as remote debugging, remote backup, JMX, FTP, Custom SSL, websockets and polling etc.
