LunchBadger Teams with Joyent to Tap Growth in Serverless Multi-Cloud Market

With a Projected 74 Percent Savings from Multi-Cloud, Companies Partner to Empower the Enterprise with Serverless Application Support

SAN FRANCISCO – December 19, 2017 - LunchBadger, a serverless microservices platform, and Joyent, the open cloud company, have partnered to support multi-cloud serverless applications. With this announcement, the companies enter a fast-growing market to offer a flexible and fixed-cost alternative to managing serverless applications across multiple providers. The news comes as serverless solutions reach new levels of sophistication for enterprise users hungry for increased efficiencies and reduced TCO.

“Analysis from the Cloud Price Index has found serverless is poised to drive TCO savings for enterprises as a result of improved labor efficiency and scalability,” said Owen Rogers, Research Director of the Digital Economics Unit for 451 Research. “A multi-cloud approach to serverless, such as this partnership between Joyent and Lunchbadger, has the potential to further drive cost-savings, while avoiding lock-in to any single cloud provider. The Cloud Price Index previously found a multi-cloud approach to delivering applications could save 74% on direct costs as opposed to sticking to a single cloud provider.”

An early pioneer of cloud computing and open source, Joyent has evolved to become the open cloud company. Joyent’s Triton Private Regions provide the foundation of an open cloud by delivering centralized, low cost storage with low latency access across multiple clouds. Joyent’s Triton Kubernetes provides multi-cloud compute using Kubernetes as the delivery vehicle. Customers can provision and manage Kubernetes clusters on any region on any cloud — both public and private — from a global control plane. It helps them simplify Kubernetes operations globally, distribute workloads across clouds, and optimize compute costs. Joyent’s open cloud approach enables cloud agnostic, serverless applications. The partnership provides an agnostic alternative to AWS Lambda, Google Functions, Azure Functions and IBM Openwhisk.

“Our partnership with LunchBadger is a key element of our open cloud strategy,” said Shubhra Kar, Vice President of Product, Joyent. “Their LunchBadger Serverless Platform has been designed to be cloud agnostic and Kubernetes native. They are the ideal partner for us to work with to provide our customers the ability to break free from the lock-in of proprietary ‘as a service’ offerings of cloud providers.”

"We view this as perfect timing for the industry," said Al Tsang, Founder and CEO, LunchBadger. "Joyent has freed enterprise users from the cloud's storage and computing constraints. We are excited to partner with them to help solve the challenge of microservices and serverless. The time is now for a more agnostic approach to cloud, especially with the latest technology driving code on demand, free of the need to provision underlying infrastructure. Multi-cloud unlocks enormous potential to increase productivity and operational efficiency through an automated modern application stack.”

LunchBadger’s modern application stack unifies the best of breed open source components into a complete microservices platform. Key components include Express Gateway, an API gateway built entirely on Express.js, microservices composition and integration tooling, developer portal and IDE to write functions, all fused to a Kubernetes Runtime. This optimized stack primes the enterprise and its users to achieve industry use cases and solutions with an accelerated time to market. LunchBadger offers subscription and managed services to its serverless microservices platform.
