Joyent, Telx, Cirracore and Canvas Systems Join Forces to Provide All-in-One Private Cloud Solution

Complete Cloud Solution That Includes Joyent's SmartDataCenter Makes Private Cloud Evaluation Simple and Affordable

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - Nov 8, 2011) - Joyent, the global provider of cloud computing software and services, together with Telx, Cirracore, and Canvas Systems, today announced availability of a private cloud solution that gives enterprise customers the technology they need to easily evaluate private cloud deployment options.

The partners have created a powerful reference architecture of a complete turnkey solution for organizations of all types and sizes to evaluate the leading Joyent cloud infrastructure technology, SmartDataCenter (SDC). A limited number of demo instances of this solution are available from Telx's Atlanta facility.

"Companies considering a private cloud solution have been overwhelmed by the clutter in the cloud market. Joyent and our partners are cutting through the clutter by making available a complete cloud solution that includes Joyent's SmartDataCenter, the alternative to the status quo in the cloud," said Dr. Jason Hoffman, founder and CTO of Joyent.

"This package also eliminates the unwieldy and complicated formal evaluation process and lets companies experience the technology quickly, with little upfront investment," said Darryl Brown, GM, Cloud and Digital Media from Telx.

The complete cloud solution consists the following elements:

  • Joyent's SmartDataCenter, the only field proven, carrier-grade cloud infrastructure software
  • Cirracore's systems integration, professional services, and delivery of the solution
  • Canvas Systems' system integration utilizing the CloudPod™ virtualization platform
  • Telx's strategic data center locations and industry-leading interconnection services.

SDC is a complete cloud software stack optimized at every level for private or service provider clouds, so enterprises can be assured they'll get the very best in performance, scale, resource management, and service assurance. SmartDataCenter gives service providers an alternative approach to status quo cloud computing infrastructure. While it supports Linux and Windows applications that run on KVM, it offers additional benefits such as full visibility up and down the stack with Joyent Cloud Analytics. It also delivers unique efficiencies from its operating system, SmartOS, including higher performance due to lower overhead and local storage that ensures data resiliency.
