Layershift were the first provider to introduce this revolutionary platform to the UK. Now we’re first to go multi-region with the addition of our USA Southwest region in Phoenix, Arizona.
Answering your demand
Customers throughout Europe are enjoying the exceptionally high standard of service and support we deliver together with our Jelastic PaaS. More and more businesses are saving time and money by only paying for usage, rather than instance size, combined with the renewed focus our highly versatile hosting platform grants by removing sysadmin setup time and headaches.
But our friends across the pond in America were sad. They looked across with envy and pleaded:
“Why do we have to put up with poor service and unreliability from the huge IaaS corps?”
Of course this illustrative of the problem facing most of our PaaS competitors: almost all are built on top of third party infrastructure such as AWS, Digital Ocean, or Azure, so they really have no control over the important infrastructure details; nor can they provide robust SLAs as standard like Layershift.
The US is also an important market for many of our European customers. Together these factors created a very high demand to combine Layershift’s extra special service quality, scalable hosting platform, and a well connected US server location.
We took this opportunity to expand our overall footprint – already in Manchester, Amsterdam, Chicago, and Singapore – launching our Jelastic PaaS in Phoenix is a really proud moment for us.

There’s one thing central to everything we do at Layershift: keeping our customers happy. Nothing is more important than delivering the very best customer service in our power.
That mantra has seen Layershift grow from strength to strength over the years, and we’re extremely proud and grateful for all the customer referrals we receive from our happy customers.
One of the most fundamental pillars to that success is customer feedback. In fact it’s the very fuel that keeps our business going and growing so strongly.
As a managed hosting provider we work exceptionally closely with our customers, so we like to think that we have a good handle on their needs, wants, desires, and challenges. But how do we know if we’re really doing a good job with that? Are we really solving problems in the most effective way? Was our assistance at the right level of detail and clarity to help the customer meet their goals?
On the 11th and 12th of March, cloud experts and enthusiasts gathered from all over the world in London, UK for the biggest and best attended cloud event in the world – Cloud Expo Europe.

We couldn’t miss this amazing opportunity to showcase our exciting range of services, so 4 of our brightest and best gleefully headed off to London for 2 eventful days of exhibiting.
Visitors to our stand learnt about our SSD-powered fully managed Cloud VPS with the Parallels Plesk 12 control panel, our new Traffic Guard service – an Inline Content Delivery Network, Web Application Firewall, & DDoS mitigation solution – and our award-winning auto-scaling PaaS, Jelastic, which is now also available as a Managed Private Cloud option.
Layershift on Size
Our stand proved to be massively popular, as we explained to visitors why ‘size doesn’t matter’! Which we found is always a great conversation starter…

The final countdown to Christmas has begun and we know that all of you can’t wait to spend some quality time with your family, friends, and loved ones. OK, maybe not all of you, we suspect there’ll be at least a few programmers donning their Halloween masks by mistake:
Q: Why do programmers always mix up Halloween and Christmas?
A: Because Oct 31 == Dec 25!
If you don’t understand, don’t worry (and Google it!), but most of all don’t be scared if you see a few confused ghouls roaming the streets over the next few days – these are the good folks that make the Internet world tick so give them a hearty handshake (and maybe a bucket load of sweets: let’s face it you’re going to eat enough sugar these next few days anyway!) on our behalf!
