Great partnerships don't stay stagnant, they move forward. So naturally, we’re quite happy to announce that we’re going to the next level with Cloudant, provider of a globally distributed database-as-a-service (DBaaS). As of today, Cloudant’s service is available on our high-performance cloud platform to deliver a finely tuned database technology stack. Joyent designs and drives innovation into its public cloud using unique OS-based virtualization, which is optimized to support high-scalability apps for cloud computing.
We first partnered with Cloudant last April when Cloudant's NoSQL DBaaS initially become available on Joyent. Today, we’re also launching a new multi-tenant Cloudant cluster running in the Joyent East Coast data center. Dedicated Cloudant clusters will be available in every Joyent data center later this month.
“Making sure operational data scales flawlessly with application code is challenging, which is why when we see technology that helps our customers, we start integrating it,” said Alan Hoffman, Cloudant’s chief product officer and co-founder. “Now, with Joyent, we’re able to quickly provision Cloudant accounts across the global network of Joyent data centers.”
Cloudant can now take advantage of the dynamic tracing framework and real-time troubleshooting features in our public cloud, which provides deep insight into global system performance. Now, we’re both able to deliver increased application performance to customers.
Our partnership with Cloudant reflects our focus on scalability and performance. It also supports our commitment to give our customers what they want the most: low cost, real-time systems that are easy to use.
