Joyent Launches Manta Service for Cloud Computing, Storage

June 25th, 2013

Thus, Manta Storage Service will be able to do a single job or a series of jobs, some of them batch, some of them near real-time analytics. Manta, in fact, could fit a Hadoop job into its compute and object storage system, and run a wide variety of other applications as well, depending on what its users want to do. As a service from Joyent, customers will be charged -- by the second -- for the Manta services they use. Read More ›

Joyent Mashes Up Compute And Object Storage

June 25th, 2013

The idea of the Manta Storage Service, is to make use of a type of virtualization that differs from what is typically seen in the marketplace. This is what is known as hardware virtualization, where platforms like VMware, Zen and KVM emulate an entire server - the hardware - so that apps will run on top of the guest operating system, which in turn runs on top of the hypervisor (the "machine" in virtual machine).

The compute tasks include log analysis, search index generation, financial analysis and many other data-intensive tasks that normally require data movement or setup of separate compute clusters and processing software.

Joyent’s Manta – A Solution for Data’s Gravity?

June 25th, 2013

Manta is a pretty intriguing idea and one which, frankly, strikes me as entirely logical. The benefit of processing close to data storage, and the ability to derive insights as quickly as possible from the ever increasing amount of data that is extant is a no-brainer. I’d expect other infrastructure vendors to follow Joyent’s lead and begin to offer converged storage/compute offerings to customers. Read More ›
