    Back in September we brought you news on Jumpstarter, a hosting platform that promises to reduce the amount of time it takes developers to create new software. Back then, the Swedish startup was in private beta, but as of today this is officially a public product.

    In an nutshell, Jumpstarter sells itself as a “next-generation hosting platform”. It’s all about speed, scalability and ease-of-use. Indeed, Jumpstarter sets up a ready-to-use cloud server for you in a micro-second, which means websites and applications can be good to go in no time. It covers popular frameworks such as WordPress and Drupal.

    Additionally, Jumpstarter also lets you quickly clone projects, covering databases, files and source code. Throw into the mix coding collaboration tools and an elastic cloud server that automatically allocates more girth during traffic spikes, and what we have here is a pretty robust toolkit. The core raison d’être of Jumpstarter is to remove the hassle and help coders do what they do best – code.

    “We’ve put a lot of effort into making our advanced technology easy accessible through a simple GUI,” explains co-founder Daniel Marklund. “Our overall goal is to combine simplicity, speed and power – all to make life easier for developers.”

    The switch was flicked into public beta last week, with more than 2,000 developers signing up in the first five days.
