PALO ALTO, Calif., Nov. 14 – Jelastic Inc., the creators of the most innovative Java cloud hosting platform, today announced the integration of the Jelastic platform with Eclipse, the most popular Integrated Development Environment (IDE) for Java development. The Jelastic plug-in for Eclipse significantly facilitates development and deployment of Java EE projects on this platform as developers can manage their deployments and hosting environments without switching between the IDE and the browser.
Jelastic platform is an innovative PaaS that received the Duke´s Choice Award 2012 - the Java community´s most prestigious prize for technology leaders. The key priority of Jelastic´s creators is to make cloud hosting of Java apps as easy as possible: that is why the platform supports integration with the most popular build systems (Maven, Ant, Hudson and Jenkins) and can now be integrated with Eclipse IDE. A special plug-in for Eclipse makes development of Java EE web applications on the Jelastic platform much more convenient, since the developer can now log in to Jelastic and deploy the app in the cloud right from Eclipse.
The Jelastic plug-in for Eclipse provides the developer with the following useful functions:
- Ability to manage (start, stop, and so on) user environments,
- Deploy Eclipse projects to Jelastic,
- Access server log files, and much more.
All these functions are available from the Eclipse interface. Why is this so important? Even though Jelastic platform is designed to be very simple and user-friendly, it still can be very distracting and inconvenient to constantly switch between Eclipse and a browser. For many Java developers, Eclipse is at the core of their activities, so they will appreciate the opportunity to deploy an app in the cloud right from a familiar IDE.
The plug-in can be downloaded from http://marketplace.eclipse.org/node/513997 or installed automatically from Eclipse. You can learn more about Jelastic Eclipse plugin in Jelastic documentation: http://jelastic.com/docs/eclipse-plugin-user-manual
In the future, plug-ins for integration with other widely used IDEs will also be available.
Jelastic, Inc., a startup company based in Palo Alto, Calif., makes the Java server hosting platform for developers and hosting service providers. Jelastic is the only PaaS offering designed specifically for hosting service providers to deploy and make available to their customers. Jelastic automatically scales Java applications and allocates server resources required by applications, thus delivering the true next generation Java cloud computing.
Frank Ding, engineering analysis & technical computing manager at Simpson Strong-Tie, discussed the advantages of utilizing the cloud for occasional scientific computing, identified the obstacles to doing so, and proposed workarounds to some of those obstacles.
The private industry least likely to adopt public cloud services for data storage are financial institutions. Holding the most sensitive and heavily-regulated of data types, personal financial information, banks and similar institutions are mostly moving towards private cloud services – and doing so at great cost.
In this week's hand-picked assortment, researchers explore the path to more energy-efficient cloud datacenters, investigate new frameworks and runtime environments that are compatible with Windows Azure, and design a uniﬁed programming model for diverse data-intensive cloud computing paradigms.

When it comes to cloud, long distances mean unacceptably high latencies. Researchers from the University of Bonn in Germany examined those latency issues of doing CFD modeling in the cloud by utilizing a common CFD and its utilization in HPC instance types including both CPU and GPU cores of Amazon EC2.
