Operations Guide Introduction

Operations guide is a document for Jelastic PaaS service hosting providers. It is created with the purpose of describing the workflow of the operations process. There are two parties involved in this process:
  • Hosting Provider (you)
  • Jelastic Team

All of the major maintenance activities are listed in the table below and can be applied to the user/infrastructure hardware nodes or containers. Most of the activities can be performed by Hosting Provider independently, while the others require assistance from the Jelastic Operations team (contact via Jelastic Support) for the proper maintenance.

The table legend:

  • Activity - a short description of the operation (click on the particular record to view the appropriate guide)
  • User Hardware Node - hardware node with user containers
  • Infrastructure Hardware Node - hardware node with the Jelastic infrastructure containers and other infrastructure elements
  • Infrastructure Container - a container with a particular component of the Jelastic PaaS infrastructure
  • Hosting Provider - this operation can be performed by yourself (according to the linked instruction)
  • Jelastic Operations - this activity should be performed by the Jelastic Operations team (can be requested via Jelastic Support)
  • N/A - an activity is not available for the appropriate element

Notes:

  • If you plan to perform any maintenance, which is not listed in this table, and you are not sure about the effect it might cause on the product, please contact the Jelastic Support team. Wait for the confirmation of the planned activities safety (some changes might cause application downtime or severe performance degradation).
  • Any custom configuration, which is not described in this guide, should be discussed with the Jelastic Operation team; otherwise, it may be overwritten during the next platform upgrade.
