Amsterdam and San Francisco – April 19, 2012 — Joyent, a global provider of cloud computing software and services, today unveiled Joyent Cloud Europe, an extension of the US-based Joyent Cloud that will provide high-performance real-time Infrastructure-as-a-Service in Europe, located in Amsterdam.
This launch is driven by demand from customers in North America who are expanding into Europe and need the same level of real-time performance, reliability and unmatched Cloud Analytics they receive from Joyent in the U.S. Joyent’s Amsterdam facility will also provide Europe-based businesses and developers with access to Joyent Cloud’s superior value.
Joyent Cloud Europe uses Joyent’s SmartDataCenter, the company’s cloud infrastructure platform, to deliver in-depth analytics, reliability, performance and scalability all while ensuring data security.
Joyent’s European launch follows a recent announcement highlighting Joyent’s plans to expand its public cloud services and facilities in Tokyo and Singapore to meet surging customer demand for Joyent Cloud services in Asia.
“Many of our Joyent Cloud customers have experienced significant growth based on the superior user experience and performance we deliver on Joyent Cloud,” said Steve Tuck, Executive Vice President and General Manager of Joyent Cloud, Joyent’s public cloud line of business. “As they expand into Europe they want the same level of real-time computing performance as in the U.S. to ensure that their European user base gets only the best. At the same time, our European public cloud will give European businesses customers the opportunity to deliver a higher-quality experience to their end-users.”
"Joyent service and support is key to Voxer’s highly demanding Push-To-Talk Walkie Talkie service. We are growing rapidly and welcome the opportunity to run our service from Amsterdam as well as the US,” said Matt Ranney, CTO of Voxer. “We look forward to working with Joyent in Europe to continue providing our service to sophisticated customers."
"We look forward to working with Joyent to provide customers in Europe with the same cloud management capabilities that we deliver together in the U.S." said David Bagley, CEO of enStratus, Joyent partner and provider of cloud infrastructure automation and management solutions.
