With this acquisition, Joyent will be able to offer expanded cloud infrastructure services to customers by adding new virtualization technology for Windows and Linux operating systems.
Joyent customers will be the only cloud computing users that can deploy both the cloud-optimized Joyent SmartOS and legacy Windows and Linux platforms in their application architectures.
The company has been actively making acquisitions in the past few years, with Layerboom being its third such major deal.
The acquisitions have enabled Joyent in providing some of the most comprehensive infrastructure as a service and platform as a service offerings on the market.
“Joyent already offers customers the widest range of integrated Smart Technologies to support high-performance and reliable cloud computing,” says Joyent CEO David Young. “With Layerboom’s capabilities on our team, we are able to offer a broader technology portfolio and continue to drive the development of increasingly sophisticated cloud-based application architectures.”
Layerboom’s open-source virtual server cloud management solutions provide a multi-tenant administration system that give users the flexibility and agility to manage virtual private server cloud build out and maintenance.
