The partnership announcement follows Joyent appointing Henry Wasik the company’s CEO.
Joyent designs and drives innovation into its public cloud using unique OS-based virtualization called SmartOS, which is optimized to support high-scalability applications for cloud computing.
Cloudant’s move to the Joyent public cloud builds on its partnership with Joyent last April when it began offering Cloudant’s NoSQL DBaaS on Joyent.
The two companies are also launching a new multi-tenant Cloudant cluster running in the Joyent East Coast data center, with dedicated Cloudant clusters to be offered in every Joyent data center later this month.
“Collaborating with Joyent to run Cloudant on Joyent’s SmartOS is just another example of how we efficiently improve service,” said Alan Hoffman, co-founder and chief product officer at Cloudant. “Making sure operational data scales flawlessly with application code is challenging, which is why when we see technology that helps our customers, we start integrating it. Now, with Joyent, we’re able to quickly provision Cloudant accounts across the global network of Joyent data centers.”
Cloudant can now deploy the dynamic tracing framework and real-time troubleshooting features of DTrace in the Joyent public cloud.
As a result, Cloudant will be able to provide deep insight into global system performance and allows both companies to deliver increased application performance to customers.
