Joyent Extends Real-Time Public Cloud Offering to Asia

Joyent will extend its real-time public cloud offering to Asia in the second quarter of 2012.

This move is made to help Joyent customers expand their businesses into the two regions. The extension will also aid its partners like Telefonica (News - Alert) who have to deliver real-time infrastructure that can handle the increasing need for machine-to-machine and real-time mobile communications.

Joyent, a global provider of cloud computing software and services, will begin the extension with a public cloud in Tokyo.

The Japanese initiative will be followed by a Singapore-based operation catering to the greater Southeast Asia region.

Joyent delivers the cloud infrastructure platform that has powered the Joyent Cloud business in the U.S. for seven years.

Known as SmartDataCenter, this platform gives a competitive edge to Joyent as it sets the company apart from other cloud software providers that do not run public clouds.

Joyent has also developed and optimized SmartOS, the operating that includes highly efficient use of hardware through operating system virtualization, native security, and the server-side Javascript language and runtime Node.js.

"Japanese consumers and businesses have high standards when it comes to real-time apps, and we want to ensure that these customers are provided with the best cloud experience across the globe," said Steve Tuck, general manager of Joyent Cloud, Joyent's public cloud line of business. "Similarly, consumers and businesses in Southeast Asia are demanding a better cloud services experience and we will provide that through our unique technology stack."

Joyent aims to roll out a collection of seamlessly connected high performance public clouds throughout this year.

Joyent was in news last month when Joyent Cloud partnered with enStratus to deliver comprehensive cloud management capabilities for security, governance, and resource control.
