Joyent Compute Service provides the essential features to develop, launch and scale web and mobile applications.
Joyent always uses the latest and greatest Intel processors and 15k RPM HDs in our data centers. 10 Gbit/s and 40 Gbit/s standard network fabric everywhere means the fastest movement of critical data.
Dynamic, real-time instance scaling available. For the most fluid of applications, instances can be scaled up or down on-demand without service interruption (some restrictions apply).
Joyent's big data servers for Hadoop offer bare-metal performance allowing you to run nearly 3x faster or at 1/3 the cost of other Hadoop offerings in the cloud.
Copy-on-write file system architected on ZFS. Resiliency for the entire application stack, on-the-fly data integrity checks (for Linux, Windows and SmartOS).
Optimized instances for CouchDB, Hadoop, MongoDB, MySQL, Oracle, PostgrSQL and Riak. Integration with leading database-as-a-service offerings from MongoLab and Cloudant.
Cloud analytics provides visualization of the entire system landscape. Fine-grained root cause analysis. Server and application analytics and system visualization tools can be integrated.
Zones uniquely provide two layers of security to prevent other tenants from accessing or impacting your instance. Support for VLAN, dynamic and dedicated IP addresses, local storage and SSL certificates. Data centers are SSAE16 certified, with multi-layer physical security, redundant power and early warning fire suppression.
True REST APIs, includes SSH insertion for M2M or secure management and “live key” rotation for easier management across multiple instances.
Complete library of images, tools and application add-ons available.
Be up and running in 15 seconds or less. Add new capacity at a click of a button. You can permanently resize production applications on SmartOS instances with no reboot or downtime.
All Tier-1 ISPs, 10gbs/40gbs fully-meshed network. SLAs have exceeded 99.999% targets for compute, network and connectivity uptime for entire history of the services.
