Cloud infrastructure provider Joyent announced on Wednesday that it has launched its set of reference architectures designed for the needs of ecommerce companies, called the Joyent Ecommerce Solutions Set.

The set includes compute, networking, storage and analytics reference architectures and services to help ecommerce companies understand customer behavior, image and video post-processing, and web and mobile application performance.

The Joyent Manta Storage Service is an object store that offers real-time Map/Reduce and analytics directly to data. It is also a store of record for images and video, allowing for post-processing in-place.

The Joyent Cloud is built with CPU bursting, bare metal I/O performance, multiple OS support, and in-memory application caching.

“Ecommerce is ubiquitous, but companies are only beginning to scratch the surface of the types of data-fueled customer experiences that will become the norm in the next few years,” Steve Tuck, SVP, Joyent said. “The move towards personalized, location-aware mobile commerce, coupled with the rise of wearable technologies, signal unbelievable and untapped opportunities for retailers. But to succeed, they need to be prepared to store, compute and analyze enormous amounts of data in near real-time and inexpensively. Our purpose-built Ecommerce solution is a reliable, rapid scale cloud infrastructure specifically designed to meet the needs of today’s eRetailers.”

Joyent said the new offering will help its ecommerce customers dedicated their efforts to strategic activities, rather than focusing on business intelligence or site performance and availability.

“Joyent understands the advanced infrastructure requirements of Ecommerce customers,” Bill Lapcevic, VP of Business Development, New Relic said. “For years, Joyent and New Relic have partnered to deliver high-performance infrastructure and applications for thousands of Ecommerce customers. Joyent’s Cloud IaaS and New Relic’s APM solution provides retailers with everything they need to deliver a high quality user experience to their customers.”

Recently, Joyent launched its Content Delivery Cloud with RiverBed Technology.
