LWS – The Highly Available Cloud
LWS Platform-as-Infrastructure manages compute resources as a utility. In a LWS cluster, a group of servers act as a single resource. LWS provides the ability to install, configure and manage the cluster from a single console, the Jelastic Cluster Administrator.
In a Jelastic Cluster, the Cluster Orchestrator runs the Jelastic Infrastructure. At least two servers are dedicated to the Cluster Orchestrator to guarantee maximum uptime.
Applications are run on any number of servers or hard nodes that are monitored and managed by the Cluster Orchestrator. Each of these application environments has built-in high availability features.
Automatic Load Balancing
Applications can be pre-configured to scale across multiple servers via the user interface. When additional server nodes are defined, a load balancer is automatically configured and activated to distribute the application load.
Application instances can be configured for maximum performance and availability using horizontal scaling.
