Jelastic PaaS Light Edition is available for automatic installation on top of DigitalOcean infrastructure without any specific technical knowledge or skills. The deployment of a private platform can be performed from DigitalOcean Marketplace.The recommended hardware requirements are 100 GB disk space, 8 GB RAM, and 4 CPU cores. However, based on your needs, you can select droplet of various capacities:
- 4 GB RAM (minimum requirement) - suitable for initial testing with no guaranteed stability
- 8 GB RAM - appropriate for the small or testing projects
more than 8 GB RAM - recommended option for the large and active production applications
The size can be chosen during the installation steps using a convenient DigitalOcean wizard. And the number of hardware servers can be easily enlarged via intuitive Jelastic admin panel or using simple command lines even when the platform is already up and running.
During the installation, a free beta license for Jelastic PaaS is generated for you. It remains valid for one year and allows hosting of 10 nodes (up to 64 GB RAM each). Consider upgrading to billing for unlimited hosting.
