Joyent Launches Essential Infrastructure Solutions for Ecommerce Companies

New Joyent Solutions Deliver High-Performance, Flexible and Low-Cost Cloud Infrastructure for Online Businesses of All Sizes

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 12/11/13 -- Joyent, Inc., the high-performance cloud infrastructure and big data analytics company, today introduced the Joyent® Ecommerce Solutions set -- a combination of compute, networking, storage and analytics reference architectures designed to support and advance the rapidly evolving needs of all Ecommerce companies. Today's retail companies must not only continue delivering on the fundamentals, like page load times and transaction speeds, but also harness the power of personalized data for every customer. The new Joyent Ecommerce solutions and reference architectures are designed to meet the needs of companies on the forefront of this next wave of Ecommerce.

"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," said Steve Tuck, SVP, Joyent. "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's Ecommerce solutions focus on the essential business and technical challenges in Ecommerce architecture:

  • Customer behavior analytics: The Joyent Manta Storage Service, a first-of-its-kind object store that brings real-time Map/Reduce and analytics directly to data, serves as the central repository for logs and contains a built-in compute facility to process them in near real-time, eliminating the need to move data back and forth across a network.
  • Image and video post-processing: The Joyent Manta Storage Service is a store of record for images and video and allows in-place post-processing like resize, crop, thumbnail and more.
  • Web and mobile application availability and performance: The Joyent Cloud is built on advanced OS Virtualization Container technology with CPU bursting, bare metal I/O performance, multiple OS support, in-memory application caching and unique performance tooling for application level debugging on Node.js and Ruby on Rails. These capabilities enable industry-leading 99.999% cloud uptime and high-performance for all Ecommerce web and mobile apps.
  • Rising content delivery costs: Joyent provides a low-cost content delivery architecture that delivers better performance, control and 4-5x cost-savings than traditional content delivery networks.
  • 24/7 Support: An expanded set of support options including business and mission critical -- particularly important during the holiday retail season.

By bringing these capabilities, tools, and services together into one purpose-built offering, Joyent enhances business intelligence, operational transparency, overall Ecommerce site performance and availability, allowing you to dedicate your time and energy to those key strategic activities that let you gain more success in your core business.

"Wanelo brings stores, products and people into a single social platform, and the community has experienced massive growth over the last year, particularly over the holidays. Our users spend an average of 50 minutes per day on Wanelo, saving and buying products and generating mission-critical data daily. All that requires an infrastructure provider that can scale as fast we do," said Konstantin Gredeskoul, CTO, Wanelo. "Joyent stays up and running with us, and the Manta big data platform gives us the ability to perform complex data analysis across hundreds of gigabytes of data in minutes vs. hours and days."

"Joyent understands the advanced infrastructure requirements of Ecommerce customers," said Bill Lapcevic, Vice President of Business Development, New Relic. "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."

Cloud Expo Breaking News
Cloud backup and recovery services are critical to safeguarding an organization’s data and ensuring business continuity when technical failures and outages occur. With so many choices, how do you find the right provider for your specific needs? In his session at 14th Cloud Expo, Daniel Jacobson, Technology Manager at BUMI, will outline the key factors including backup configurations, proactive monitoring, data restoration, disaster recovery drills, security, compliance and data center resources. Aside from the technical considerations, the secret sauce in identifying the best vendor is the level of focus, expertise and specialization of their engineering team and support group, and how they monitor your day-to-day backups, provide recommendations, and guide you through restores when necessary.

The world of cloud and application development is not just for the hardened developer these days. In their session at 14th Cloud Expo, Phil Jackson, Development Community Advocate for SoftLayer, and Harold Hannon, Sr. Software Architect at SoftLayer, will pull back the curtain of the architecture of a fun demo application purpose-built for the cloud. They will focus on demonstrating how they leveraged compute, storage, messaging, and other cloud elements hosted at SoftLayer to lower the effort and difficulty of putting together a useful application. This will be an active demonstration and review of simple command-line tools and resources, so don’t be afraid if you are not a seasoned developer.
You use an agile process; your goal is to make your organization more agile. What about your data infrastructure? The truth is, today’s databases are anything but agile – they are effectively static repositories that are cumbersome to work with, difficult to change, and cannot keep pace with application demands. Performance suffers as a result, and it takes far longer than it should to deliver on new features and capabilities needed to make your organization competitive. As your application and business needs change, data repositories and structures get outmoded rapidly, resulting in increased work for application developers and slow performance for end users. Further, as data sizes grow into the Big Data realm, this problem is exacerbated and becomes even more difficult to address. A seemingly simple schema change can take hours (or more) to perform, and as requirements evolve the disconnect between existing data structures and actual needs diverge.
Cloud scalability and performance should be at the heart of every successful Internet venture. The infrastructure needs to be resilient, flexible, and fast – it’s best not to get caught thinking about architecture until the middle of an emergency, when it's too late. In his interactive, no-holds-barred session at 14th Cloud Expo, Phil Jackson, Development Community Advocate for SoftLayer, will dive into how to design and build-out the right cloud infrastructure.

Chief Security Officers (CSO), CIOs and IT Directors are all concerned with providing a secure environment from which their business can innovate and customers can safely consume without the fear of Distributed Denial of Service attacks. To be successful in today's hyper-connected world, the enterprise needs to leverage the capabilities of the web and be ready to innovate without fear of DDoS attacks, concerns about application security and other threats. Organizations face great risk from increasingly frequent and sophisticated attempts to render web properties unavailable, and steal intellectual property or personally identifiable information. Layered security best practices extend security beyond the data center, delivering DDoS protection and maintaining site performance in the face of fast-changing threats.

Performance is the intersection of power, agility, control, and choice. If you value performance, and more specifically consistent performance, you need to look beyond simple virtualized compute. Many factors need to be considered to create a truly performant environment. In his General Session at 14th Cloud Expo, Marc Jones, Vice President of Product Innovation for SoftLayer, will explain how to take advantage of a multitude of compute options and platform features to make cloud the cornerstone of your online presence.
Are you interested in accelerating innovation, simplifying deployments, reducing complexity, and lowering development costs? The cloud is changing the face of application development and deployment, with enterprise-grade infrastructure and platform services making it possible for you to build and rapidly scale enterprise applications. In his session at 14th Cloud Expo, Gene Eun, Sr. Director, Oracle Cloud at Oracle, will discuss the latest solutions and strategies for application developers and enterprise IT organizations to leverage Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS) to build and deploy modern business applications in the cloud.
Hybrid cloud refers to the federation of a public and private cloud environment for the purpose of extending the elastic and flexibility of compute, storage and network capabilities, in an on-demand, pay-as-you go basis. The hybrid approach allows a business to take advantage of the scalability and cost-effectiveness that a public cloud computing environment offers without exposing mission-critical applications and data to third-party vulnerabilities. Hybrid cloud environments involve complex management challenges. First, organizations struggle to maintain control over the resources that lie outside of their managed IT scope. They also need greater infrastructure visibility to help reduce maintenance costs and ensure that their company data and resources are properly handled and secured.
As more applications and services move "to the cloud" (public or on-premise), cloud environments are increasingly adopting and building out traditional enterprise features. This in turn is enabling and encouraging cloud adoption from enterprise users. In many ways the definition is blurring as features like continuous operation, geo-distribution or on-demand capacity become the norm. At NuoDB we're involved in both building enterprise software and using enterprise cloud capabilities. In his session at 14th Cloud Expo, Seth Proctor, CTO of NuoDB, Inc., will cover experiences from building, deploying and using enterprise services and suggest some ways to approach moving enterprise applications into a cloud model.
Understanding the future of Big Data is crucial in the early stages of decision making around Big Data architectures. In the enterprise, what stands out is the need to integrate Hadoop smoothly into your existing data warehouse architecture, while taking advantage of existing skills and investments. In his General Session at 14th Cloud Expo, Marty Gubar, Director of Product Management at Oracle, will present a strategy for enabling integrated data management using both Hadoop and relational technologies. In particular, he'll look at how SQL, long the standard for the data warehouse, is increasingly being used on Hadoop. The real prize, though, is Smart SQL processing, seamlessly integrating the data warehouse and Hadoop into a single, Big Data Management System.
The time has come for humanity’s first interstellar trek to Terranuvem, the cloud planet, and Chief Engineer Cyrus Agarwal has been chosen to ready a ship for the voyage.
