Joyent Launches Hadoop Cloud Service

January 25th, 2013

Cloud infrastructure provider Joyent jumped into the big data game this week, rolling out an Apache Hadoop service to let enterprises process high-performance data applications. The Hadoop offering will use Hortonworks Data Platform running on Joyent's high-performance cloud infrastructure, Jason Hoffman, Joyent CTO and founder, said Friday in an interview with CRN. "Our feeling about the cloud is that its advancement is being driven very much by big data services where people want to do real-time analytics and large-scale analysis of business data," Hoffman said.
