How to I create environment for different regions

Providing significant flexibility, Cloudjiffy PaaS gives hosting service providers the possibility to group various types of hardware within the confines of a single platform, which allows them to build versatile and complex cloud solutions. Being named environment regions, each of such hardware sets may have a different capacity, pricing, and location, but is still orchestrated via a single infrastructure.

Despite the pretty simple concept, such an approach can bring a variety of advantages, allowing me to choose the most suitable hardware for my app’s hosting, based on:

  • geographical location - for getting a better response time and broader services' distribution
  • quality & capacity - for adjusting the hosting conditions up to the current needs, e.g. cheaper hardware - for development and testing, a more superior one - for production
  • cost - for choosing the most affordable pricing policy based on the budget available

Herewith, alongside selecting the desired hardware set during a new environment creation, the already running project can be subsequently moved to another location. 

In such a way, I can receive impressive flexibility for the organization of my application’s lifecycle and its dissemination policy.

So, read the complete guidance on managing environment regions for my applications below and get the maximum efficiency of this significant feature - find out how to:

  • Select an environment region
  • View details about regions

Select the Environment Region

In case my service hosting provider offers multiple environment regions, I can see the appropriate drop-down list on all of the frames, which are intended to initiate the creation of a new environment:

  • Topology wizard

  • Cloudjiffy Marketplace

  • Environment import

The only exception is the operation of cloning - in this case, a new environment is created in the same hardware region automatically. However, it can be easily moved to the desired location manually, with the help of the migration option.


  • the amount/names/descriptions/parameters of provided regions are defined by each particular hosting provider individually; thus they can vary at different Cloudjiffy installations
  • upon selecting particular hardware, the environment domain (shown next to the field with its name) may also be changed, depending on the region’s settings

Choose any of the provided regions (it is recommended to find out the details on each of them beforehand) to place my environment there automatically. After creation, I’ll see my new environment appeared at the dashboard being supplied with a special tiny icon assigned for the region:

Upon hovering over it, the appropriate region name is displayed. In such a way, my environments can be quickly differentiated by the region/location.

View Details about Regions

We recommend to getting acquainted with the specifics of each available region in advance to make a choice according to my needs. This information can be viewed in the following ways:

  • every region is supplied with a short description right within the list

  • clicking on the More details point of the list above redirects me to the Regions tab inside the Quotas & Pricing information window.

Here, the detailed info on the provided regions can be found, e.g. a general description with the list of supplied parameters and included features. However, depending on my hosting provider’s settings, this link can lead to a separate site or document page.

  • Pricing section of the same frame, the details on the charged resources (RAM/CPUDisk SpaceTraffic and Options tabs) and licensing costs (the Software tab) for every region can be viewed - use the drop-down list at the top to switch between them

If more information on a particular region is required, please contact my hosting provider to get the appropriate assistance. Also, in case I’ve discovered some other location suits my application more, I can easily migrate it and benefit from the new conditions.
