A Resilient Architecture

Everyone's components can fail, but in Joyent's architecture, a failing component only affects the infrastructure that is directly dependent upon that component. For example, if a disk fails, ZFS automatically begins resilvering—with minimal disruption and no downtime to the compute node. If an entire compute node fails, only the virtual machines provisioned on that node fail; other nodes are unaffected. And in the unlikely event of broader failure the affected components stop, but the failure doesn't spread.

  1. Zones isolate each application environment
  2. ZFS manages a storage pool of virtualized physical drives, if a physical drive fails ZFS automatically replicates without disruption to the compute node
  3. Thousands of zones can be created on one kernel
  4. Zones virtualize the hardware resources
