With Jelastic, you can choose to build your C4 plugin on Servint, Dogado, Rusonyx or some other hosted service provider, and deploy the c4 plugin on its website directly without entering any command lines.

For the C4 plugins, you need to use the "snova-c4-heroku-server-xxx.zip" file on Heroku, and use the "snova-c4-server-xxx.zip" file on the other 3 PaaS platforms.

By the way, besides to use Snova on GAE, Cloud Foundry, Heroku, OpenShift or Jelastic separately, you can also use on one, more or even all of them together, as well as to use multiple apps on each of them.
