    dtrace.conf(16) wrap-up by Bryan Cantrill

    Something that got a little lost in the excitement of Samsung’s recent acquisition of Joyent was dtrace.conf(16), our quadrennial (!) unconference on DTrace. The videos are up, and in the spirit of Adam Leventhal‘s excellent wrap-ups from dtrace.conf(08) and dtrace.conf(12), I wanted to provide a survey of the one-day conference and its content.

    Joyent and Samsung: Thoughts after the close by Bryan Cantrill, CTO

    You may have seen that Samsung is acquiring Joyent.

    Samsung acquires Joyent by Scott Hammond, CEO

    Since its inception, just over ten years ago, Joyent has lived on the leading edge of technical innovation. The Joyent team pioneered public cloud computing (and hybrid cloud), nurtured and grew Node.js into a de facto standard for web, mobile and IoT architectures, and was among the first to embrace and industrialize containers, compute-centric object storage, and what is now coming to be known as serverless computing.

    More than just a Drop(box) in the bucket? by Bill Fine

    At Joyent, we build open source software to automate data centers. Like Amazon, we operate our own public cloud. Unlike Amazon, we also offer the software that powers our public cloud to enterprises who want to run their own data centers. Simply put, we make it easy for companies to switch from the public cloud to a private data center, or to use both in a hybrid model. And, as I look across our customer base and sales pipeline, I see a clear trend toward a hybrid cloud model emerging among what I call “cloud mature” companies.
