No1 Platform as a Service (PaaS) Hosting Solution

Deploy and run instanly any app on our dev friendly platform with built-in scalability and high availability and enjoy the peace of mind to focus on your development work and creativity.

Pricing is based on true resources usage per hour and starts at:

– Single App environment: $0.003372 per hour (or $2.46 per month)

– Load Balancer + App Environment + DB: $0.010122 per hour (or $7.39 per month)


Automated Provisioning via UI and API

The production and dev environments are created in minutes within user-friendly topology wizard, or via API, SSH, CLI. Run Java, PHP, Python, Node.js, Ruby, .NET, Go, Docker Swarm or Kubernetes based applications using a rich variety of SQL and NoSQL databases, app servers, balancers and storage containers with no manual configurations required for installation.

Zero Code Change Deploy

Deploy and run legacy monolithic applications and cloud-native microservices with no code changes and zero lock-in. The deployment can be easily performed using GIT or SVN with automatic updates, archives (zip, war, jar, ear) right from the dev panel or via integrated plugins like Maven, Eclipse, NetBeans, IntelliJ IDEA.

Cloud-Native and Traditional Applications Support

Application and system containers support, as well as zero code change approach provide the ability to run both cloud-native microservices and legacy monolithic applications. Our PaaS supports all the Open Source technology stacks making easy to deploy cloud native applications.

Automatic Vertical and Horizontal Scaling

Elastic automatic scaling enables granular resource allocation based on the load level. This ensures high performance, application availability and uptime, at the same time, cost efficiency by paying only for really consumed resources.

Managed Clustered Solutions within Marketplace

Already prepackaged templates of clustered WordPress, Magento, MySQL, PostgreSQL, NGINX, Tomcat, GlassFish, WildFly, Docker Swarm, Kubernetes and other solutions are available in the PaaS Marketplace. These highly-available clusters are automatically deployed, scaled and replicated, so minimum effort is required for support or management.

Pay-per-Use Pricing Model

There is no need to reserve resources, as the platform allocates them automatically based on the current load and using a small scaling step (128 MiB of RAM and 400 MHz of CPU). As a result, the consumed resources are billed only but not the VM limits. There is also a free trial to get started with the cloud platform.

Benefits of PaaS

Innovate faster while saving money

  • Simplify, automate, and avoid the costly steps of setting up the foundation for your application
  • Build, deploy, iterate, adapt and manage your application more rapidly over time
  • Reduce the cost of server storage and overhead, network bandwidth, maintenance, and support personnel for end-users

Simplify operations and management

  • Minimise the operational complexity by leveraging cloud-based platforms to automate and consolidate processes with easy integration using APIs
  • Provide a more uniform and predictable OS/middleware environment by having service providers automate and control it
  • Streamline application management, while maintaining complete application control and eliminating underlying infrastructure duties

Boost technology and offerings

  • Get the latest technology with faster page loads and better uptime, combined with an enhanced user interface and experience
  • Offer a wide range of applications and build unique solutions by tapping into the many niche market options offered by PaaS service providers
  • Simplify and enhance the end-user experience by allowing them to seamlessly share data between solutions

Scale apps, not costs

  • Keep costs low and easily optimize resources and costs as you scale apps. By running App Platform on MassiveGRID’s infrastructure, we make it simpler for you to control costs.
  • Scale horizontally or vertically to handle planned or unplanned traffic spikes.
  • Maximize availability with zero downtime deployments. Your apps remain available not only when you scale up or out, but also when you roll out new changes.

MassiveGRID Platform as a Service provides a unique process of automatic scaling with payments based on real consumption instead of server size.

Pay-per-Use Pricing for Ultimate Platform as a Service Flexibility

RAM and CPU consumption is monitored for each container. You are charged only for the resources utilized, not the limits.
You can set up a maximum Scaling Limit for each container, so the resources will be always available in case of load spikes or other consumption changes.

No matter how high the limit – the payment will be only based on real usage. The rest of the allocated resources will be just waiting in the pool for the application to request them, and it is totally free of charge. This is why Platform as a Service is the next generation of Cloud Hosting.
