In today's world, page load times can often mean the difference between viral user growth and rapid decline.
Ecommerce companies are beginning to take advantage of the untapped potential of caching content in the load balancing layer they already have running in the public cloud, augmenting traditional CDN usage. Joyent and Riverbed have partnered to expand upon the edge-caching capabilities that cloud load balancers contain and launched the Content Delivery Cloud, an on demand service that in minutes can start serving content to your site faster and at 1/5th the cost of a traditional CDN.

When the Joyent engineering team set out to build a next generation object storage service they looked to the Ecommerce industry and common challenges that existed.
For example, a traditional image processing workflow in the Ecommerce world requires a storage repo for the images and a separate compute service to process the images, using a tremendous amount of time, money, and data transfer. With Joyent Manta, we uniquely marry the two functions in a single converged Map/Reduce and analytics service. This single store of record for all media includes an embedded compute facility for in-place image and video post-processing. Now a "reformat", "crop" or "resize" is only an API call away. And, with Manta’s built in Map/Reduce function, logs can be processed in near real-time, providing key insight into customer experience metrics for a fraction of the normal cost. Learn More.
