Joyent, Nexenta enter strategic cloud computing partnership

To provide end-to-end cloud services and storage offering

By CBR Staff Writer

Joyent, a provider of cloud computing offerings, and Nexenta Systems, a provider of open storage offerings, have signed a strategic partnership to provide service providers with an end-to-end cloud services and storage offering.

The new offering is a cloud-based software, which requires lower infrastructure investment to higher hardware utilisation rates, faster performance, and cloud analytics that give visibility into the software stack and stored data.

Under the partnership agreement, Joyent’s SmartDataCenter 6, an integrated suite of software and services, and Nexenta’s NexentaStor, an open storage offering that provides enterprise grade features, come together to deliver a turnkey offering to service providers.

In addition, the SmartDataCenter 6 uses lightweight operating system virtualisation, delivering higher utilisation rates and higher performance.

SmartDataCenter 6 includes cloud analytics that give real-time visibility throughout the software stack and stored data into latency or other problems that can be addressed before downtime or outages occur, said the company.

Joyent CEO David Young said service providers around the world have an opportunity to profitably compete against Amazon Web Services with the combination of cloud software and storage that is inherently cost-effective, scalable and performant than any other cloud offering in the market.

"Any Service Provider who tries to compete with Amazon using the same legacy cloud technology Amazon uses is setting up for failure. Differentiation with a proven, robust offering is the only way to win," Young said.
