Fifteen years ago, I initiated a time-honored tradition among my colleagues in kernel development at Sun: shortly after the first of every year, we would get together at our favorite local restaurant to form predictions for the coming year.
While Docker has existed since 2013, 2014 was indisputably the year in which it transcended from an interesting project to a transformative technology—a shift which had profound ramifications for us at Joyent.
Given what I’ve seen the Joyent product and engineering team produce over the past several months (and years), I am confident that we are well on our way to truly becoming the best place to run Docker.
You may have seen that we recently open sourced SmartDataCenter and Manta. Because Joyent pioneered the use of infrastructure containers, you would be forgiven for asking the question: does this mean that SDC somehow competes with Docker?
Today we are announcing that we are open sourcing the two systems at the heart of our business: SmartDataCenter and the Manta object storage platform.
We believe that we will be able to connect the dots between the developer enthusiasm for Docker and the need to run containers securely and in production.
Today my role at Joyent is changing: I am transitioning from VP of Engineering to CTO, and Mark Cavage is taking on the role of VP of Engineering.
Invigorated by the impending milestone 0.12 release of Node.js, and inspired by this ever expanding and evolving community, we set out on the ultimate Node.js roadtrip to knowledge share, learn, and connect.
We have partnered with Canonical, the company behind Ubuntu, to ensure that we have a fully Certified Ubuntu set of images available to our customers.
Joyent is sponsoring Node.js on the Road, a roadshow aimed at keeping the community connected with the project and production users of Node.
This post describes the current command set and also includes much more detail about using MDB for Node.js.
An R interface to Manta - complex analytics without setup hassles.
TJ Fontaine has been effectively leading Node.js for some time now, so we’re making it official. TJ is exactly the leader who can help take Node.js to 1.0 and beyond.
Joyent is happy to announce that our two Node.js support offerings are available starting today.
Looking back at the blog posts for 2013, I like the range of topics that we write about.
