Everleap from the Tech Support Manager’s Point of View

Martin OrtegaI’m the Technical Support Manager here at Everleap, and I’d like to offer up my point of view today and get straight to the point of what Everleap is all about.

Everleap has two hosting plans: the Single site plan or Multi-site plan. You can compare the two plans on our website. When you sign up, just choose whichever plan fits your needs. Remember that you can always upgrade from the Single site plan to the Multi-site plan at a later time if you need to. So if you’re not sure what you need now, go with the Single site plan to start.

Using WebJobs Job Scheduling

Joseph JunJob scheduling is a key feature in computing that we’ve grown to rely on for handling the execution of unattended background tasks. When we originally launched Everleap the technology at the time prevented us from allowing batch processing. The recent Windows Azure Pack update added a feature called WebJobs which allows a script or executable to run as a background task in your web application as part of your site.
