Compute, storage, and network multi-tenant cloud environments through a single development platform
Joyent, a provider of cloud computing offerings and technologies, has launched new SmartDataCenter 6, a cloud operating system that is designed for service providers and enterprises to launch and operate public, private and hybrid clouds.
The new SmartDataCenter 6 is the cloud operating system that can compute, facilitate storage and network of multi-tenant cloud environments through a single development platform that enables the data centre to work like a single unified computer allowing for optimal data centre management.
The new offering provides complete automation of the data centre, with virtualisation that supports complex, multi-device architectures, virtual LANS, load balancing, routing, virtual private networks (VPNs).
In addition, the offering’s customer management includes a Web-based portal to manage the entire collection of cloud services; proven scalability that delivers unlimited scalability in a multi-tenant cloud environment across numerous physical data centres;
The company said that the new offering comes with an extensible resource-oriented architecture that allows adding, removing, or introducing new capabilities and resources without disrupting a production installation of SmartDataCenter.
Joyent CEO David Young said service providers who want to capture part of the growing cloud market need the supplier with an efficient and built-out cloud operating system, services and standard operating procedures available.
"Joyent has run a public cloud for six years and makes its software available to companies that want to benefit from our knowledge and experience when they set up their own clouds," Young said.
