Here, you can find:

  • Dev Panel - developers dashboard to manage hosted applications
  • Admin Panel - Jelastic Cluster Admin (JCA) panel to configure and orchestrate your private cloud platform
  • Admin user name and Admin user password - your admin account credentials (can be used to enter both of the above-mentioned panels)
Note: Docker Hub applies a limitation on the download rate so that only 100 pulls per six hours are allowed for anonymous users. You can provide your Docker Hub account for the platform to increase the limit to 200 pulls (free) or remove the restriction altogether (any billing plan). Refer to the JCA > Templates > Docker Registries guide to set a default Docker Hub account.

That’s it! Now, you can access your Dev and Admin panels and start managing your Jelastic PaaS installation.

Getting Started with Jelastic Cloud Platform
