Joyent SmartDataCenter 7 Delivers Production-Ready Private Cloud Software to Fill Growing Market Gap

SmartDataCenter 7 Gives Enterprises an Alternative to Fragmented Do-It-Yourself Offerings and Costly Incumbent On-Premise Infrastructure

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/24/14 -- Joyent, the high-performance cloud infrastructure and data services company, today released SmartDataCenter 7, a complete cloud management platform for private and hybrid cloud deployments. SmartDataCenter is designed around lightweight, container-based virtualization, and is time-tested, having run at scale for years as the backbone of Joyent's Public Cloud.

"Despite all the hype, private cloud hasn't meaningfully made its way into the data center because the options are limited. Operators have to choose between a kit cloud that requires the team to spend months researching every decision before they see a result, or legacy enterprise software that views 'cloud' as a mere re-branding opportunity," said Bryan Cantrill, Chief Technology Officer of Joyent. "SmartDataCenter 7 is a complete product, and was designed from the ground up to provide the scalable, elastic, service-oriented infrastructure that today's developers have come to expect. Its architecture reflects our own experiences running the Joyent public cloud, and our customers find that it is refreshingly easy to install and operate within the enterprise."

SmartDataCenter 7 is designed to deploy in hours and is proven at scale supporting all applications from production web and mobile to internal development environments. The complete cloud management platform also includes critical multi-tenant security components such as SmartLogin secure SSH key management, LDAP directory service, full identity and role based management, and built-in firewall capabilities. With absolute consistency between SmartDataCenter 7 and Joyent Public Cloud, IT organizations can now manage both public and private cloud environments without having to change any software automation, greatly reducing overhead, while enabling developers to move as fast as they need to go. And, Joyent's open ecosystem approach allows other complementary technologies to integrate and be used in both public and private cloud environments.

SmartDataCenter 7 Features

  • Easy to Deploy: Create a complete production implementation in a matter of hours.
  • Easy to Operate: Designed by operators for operators
  • Easy to Scale: Seamlessly add capacity on demand
  • Easy to Upgrade: Upgrade components without disrupting service.

"The static nature of traditional Application Delivery Controller (ADC) architectures hasn't evolved to meet the requirements of today's fast paced Cloud Service Providers, including the rapidly expanding number of applications and the way service providers aim to deliver their services today," said Jeff Pancottine, senior vice president and general manager, SteelApp at Riverbed. "Now with Riverbed SteelApp ADC and Joyent's SmartDataCenter 7 software, enterprises can bring trusted cloud services into their datacenter, reducing operating expenses while delivering huge scale."

Today most companies are adopting or evaluating container technology - Docker in particular - to speed up application deployment, drive down cost, ease management and make application delivery more flexible overall. As with most new architectures, this dream takes significant work to become a reality.

Today traditional IT approaches leverage well-architected compute/networking domains to control what applications can access what data, and how. DevOps includes rapid application development/deployment leveraging concepts like containerization, third-party sourced applications and databases. Such applications need access to production data for its test and iteration cycles. Data Security? That sounds like a roadblock to DevOps vs. protecting the crown jewels to those in IT.
