  • Why not just list prices in USD or EUR instead Indian Rupee? More easy to understand.

    Also KVM will be much better than OVZ.

    People always hate those who tell them the truth, and love those who lie to them.

    Currently this is available only in India so the entire setup is made with Indian users in mind. We are adding Europe, USA and other parts of Asia soon, so we will add USD / EUR as well.

    KVM cannot resize real-time like OVZ. CloudJiffy resizes CPU, RAM, Disk as per traffic, processes and historical usage. Also, using the Micro-services architecture, each service is is built on a separate container. Containers being lighter than full VMs, this makes the entire environment use lower resources. The USP of CloudJiffy is Automatic Vertical Scaling.

    Never mind.

  • Just tried it out. Looks cool. But frankly speaking is relatively hard to get started with. Was a bit confused about what to chose for a custom application. Just left it midway and deployed a WP template from the marketplace section. Provisioning took a few minutes. It was longer than expected. Since this was supposed to use containers I was expecting to it spin up in seconds. But soon provisioned WP was up and running. Uploaded a couple of images and published a post. After fiddling for a few minutes and reading the deployment guide managed to deploy the hello world example application. But couldn't figure out how to connect to MySQL. Again had to check the docs to understand that the password was emailed to me. (Don't remember the GUI telling this to me.) Then was able to browse the DB using PHPMyAdmin.

    Overall, looks decent. Any PaaS needs some time to learn. I remember getting started with Heroku also required reading a fair bit of stuff.

    Pricing at the current moment looks super complicated! You guys need to make it easy to understand. Here are some calculations:

    For 1GB of RAM and 3.2GHZ of CPU = 8 cloudlets = Rs. 600 (~ USD 9)
    40 GB Disk Space = Rs. 80 (~ USD 1.15)
    100GB of bandwidth = Rs. 400 (~USD 6)

    So around USD 16-17. Is this calculations correct? Considering this is fully managed PaaS that's very cheap!! Heroku and App Engine are much more expensive than this. Beanstalk with AWS IaaS pricing is quite near to this. But it is even harder to use.

    Does the doc mention any fair use policy? Can I use those 8 cloudlets at 80-90% utilization 24 x 7? Some info on this front will be greatly appreciated.

    Overall looks decent. But frankly, I wouldn't be putting anything critical on there until this platform proves itself for at least 2 years! You need to remove that yellow band about free tier warning! Heroku succeeded becuase of the free tier!

    Still, everyone needs to start somewhere!

    I hope you are not disappointed by the mixed feedback. Didn't mean to discourage you. Congratulations on launching!

    Also I think if you can launch in the US, with similar pricing, you might see more adoption. Developer time is much more expensive there. :-)

    Thank you for your detailed feedback. Let me try to elaborate on this. CloudJiffy is a mixture of IaaS and PaaS , giving you the flexibility of IaaS and the ease of use of PaaS. Compared to Heroku, App Engine etc, we offer a lot more options so you can create the environment as per your requirements. We know the added options can make it confusing, so we offer a free 30-60 minute demo with a solution architect here - https://calendly.com/cloudjiffy-demo

    The GUI does show up some information and pointers once the environment has been setup. We will ensure that it is a bit more detailed.

    The deployment templates fetch Wordpress latest or any CMS from their official website and deploy it. Also, we create OpenVZ 7 containers for Nginx and MySQL. So it does take 2-3 minutes for deployment.

    Pricing at the current moment looks super complicated! You guys need to make it easy to understand. Here are some calculations:

    For 1GB of RAM and 3.2GHZ of CPU = 8 cloudlets = Rs. 600 (~ USD 9)
    40 GB Disk Space = Rs. 80 (~ USD 1.15)
    100GB of bandwidth = Rs. 400 (~USD 6)

    So around USD 16-17. Is this calculations correct? Considering this is fully managed PaaS that's very cheap!! Heroku and App Engine are much more expensive than this. Beanstalk with AWS IaaS pricing is quite near to this. But it is even harder to use.

    This is where we are a lot different. We are charging for actual average consumption. So if you say 1GB of RAM , it could be 512MB RAM idle for 12 hours and 1.5GB usage for remaining 12 hours of a day for the entire month. If you idle at 128MB, we charge for 128MB only.

    Reserving cloudlets in advance reduces costs by upto 25%. Per cloudlet cost will go down to Rs 45 per cloudlet per month if you reserve them.

    1GB per hour (730GB per month) bandwidth is included, so you are only charged if you use more than that. You can remove it from your above calculations.

    We find this billing easier than most other PaaS , as we do not charge different fees for different platforms, nor do we charge for web requests, io requests etc.

    Does the doc mention any fair use policy? Can I use those 8 cloudlets at 80-90% utilization 24 x 7? Some info on this front will be greatly appreciated.

    See above, you are billed 100% only if you have 100% 24x7 utilization of the 8 cloudlets . If you use less, you will be charged less for those hours.

    Overall looks decent. But frankly, I wouldn't be putting anything critical on there until this platform proves itself for at least 2 years! You need to remove that yellow band about free tier warning! Heroku succeeded becuase of the free tier!

    CloudJiffy is based on Jelastic, which has been developing this for last 7+ years. It is used worldwide by over 50 datacenters. However, we are the most affordable of all of them.

    We are already hosting 900+ customers, some of them having websites with traffic in Alexa top 1000.

    The yellow band was kept in place to ensure people do not put up phishing websites for free. We did run into this problem earlier.

    Also I think if you can launch in the US, with similar pricing, you might see more adoption. Developer time is much more expensive there. :-)

    US is next in the pipeline. We should go live in Nov 2018.

    Not new, but the answer is simple, I thought you were showing off the fact that you're indian.
    Idk how you came to the conclusion that I'm new because I pointed out "india" tho, it just means I didn't read XD
