Announcing Our New Compute Product Line and Reserved Pricing

May 23, 2013 - by rachelbalik

Flexibility, Control and Cooperation: things we all crave but often find elusive - when comes to business or deciding who’s going to do the dishes.

While we can’t help you resolve those little domestic disputes, we’re excited to announce that as of today, we can offer our new end-to-end elastic compute service, which provides flexibility and control to optimize your price to performance value as well as interoperability with other cloud providers. This service meets the demands of customers of all sizes, from mobile startups to Fortune 100 enterprises.

It’s part of our commitment to make the Joyent cloud more accessible and affordable, so that any business can grow and scale with our high-performance cloud. We’ve dramatically expanded our compute portfolio to meet the full breadth of customers’ needs - as well as anticipate their future needs as the cloud computing industry continues to grow at an exponential rate.

Our new service not only delivers significantly better value on price per performance, but also delivers an easy migration path from and interoperability with other Cloud IaaS providers. We’ve also launched several new instance types, which customers can obtain and boot in minutes, allowing fast up and down scaling as computing requirements change.

Wait, there’s more!

For companies that need Cloud IaaS for whom cost is a big concern (we’re looking at you, small businesses, startups and nonprofits), we’ve introduced one- and three-year reserved capacity pricing options. With reserved capacity, customers can purchase the high-performance Joyent compute service with an upfront, one-time fee and receive a significant discount on the hourly charge for that instance over the contract term.
