Joyent Cloud Solutions

Joyent is a leading cloud computing software and services company offering infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) and platform-as-a-service (PaaS) solutions worldwide since 2004. Joyent has achieved deep cloud expertise by developing its own high performance scalable cloud operating system, SmartDataCenter, developed the groundswell node.js server side JavaScript language, and used it to manage its own large-scale public cloud serving 30,000 customers with performance that is 3x to 14x better than comparable public clouds. Leveraging the power of the Intel Xeon architecture, Joyent’s Smart Technologies provide application virtualization, which enables better performance and cost effectiveness due to higher application density and hardware utilization. SmartDataCenter 6.0 cloud OS and orchestration software is now available direct from Joyent or as a turnkey solution from Dell DCS.

Node.js – Asynchronous, non-blocking, event-driven Java-script server side language


  • Code. Deploy. Scale. Built on the powerful Node.js server-side javascript language, Joyent’s No.de platform provides developers with the simplicity and freedom of platform as a service (PaaS) without sacrificing performance. The benefits include freedom from infrastructure, freedom from vendor lock-in (as node.js is open sourced software) and the comfort of knowing that your code is running on the highest performing systems available. Modern web developers can create super-fast and complicated applications using only HTML5, CSS and Node.js.

  • Node.js is a free open-source project written in the language of the web and sponsored by Joyent. It is built on the Google V8 JavaScript engine, which provides a JavaScript development environment and uses an event loop for all execution and asynchronous methods for I/O.

  • Node.js allows programmers to code front-end, client-side and back-end apps in the same language and drastically improve time to market for emerging web and mobile applications.

  • This model is in contrast to today’s more common concurrency programming model, where operating system threads are employed to handle multiple requests at a time and I/O is synchronous. Node.js shows much better memory efficiency under high loads than systems that allocate threads to manage multiple states at once. It is common for systems to allocate 2 MB or more of memory per thread. So, resources are consumed quickly in situations of high load. Node.js eliminates the growth in overhead due to concurrency. Furthermore, users of Node.js are free from worries of dead-locking the process. Almost no function in Node.js directly performs I/O. So, the process never blocks. In the absence of blocking calls, novice programmers are able to develop fast systems.

  • Node.js is currently being used as a core enabling technology in a number of important projects, including HP webOS 2.0 as a foundational element of Leo Apotheker’s recently announced cloud strategies.
