Meeting Intense Performance Demands in Cloud Environments
Joyent, Inc. drives up cloud network performance with a unique virtualization approach and Intel® Ethernet 10 Gigabit Server Adapters
Organizations increasingly place demanding performance requirements on cloud networks. Many find that using an external cloud service provider lets them take advantage of established expertise to meet emerging technical requirements. Other customers building their own cloud environments likewise stand to gain from the innovation of a vendor experienced in building cloud software, running cloud data centers, and servicing private cloud infrastructures.
Joyent, based in San Francisco and with locations all over the world, provides cloud computing products and services for web-based segments such as social network gaming and real-time mobile applications. The company is unique in its combination of having developed a cloud software stack, running a large public cloud based on it, and offering its software to outside companies that want to build their own cloud environments. Joyent solutions are highly optimized for Intel® architecture throughout the stack, from the processor out to the Intel® Ethernet 10 Gigabit Server Adapters.
Deliver high performance from cloud infrastructure while keeping equipment costs and TCO as low as possible. Support a growing customer base that presents the demands of real-time, data-intensive applications.
Joyent developed a novel OS-level virtualization approach that currently supports as many as 2,000 application tenants across five physical hosts, and the team thinks it likely that the system is capable of even more. The company meets the intensive I/O requirements for this environment with Intel Ethernet 10 Gigabit Server Adapters.
