Joyent Cloud Partners With enStratus to Deliver Comprehensive Cloud Management Capabilities for Security, Governance, and Resource Control

Alliance Enables Enterprise Customers to Use enStratus' Cloud Automation and Orchestration Tools to Manage Joyent Cloud Architectures or as Part of Multi-Cloud Automation and Management Solutions (February 22, 2012)

SAN FRANCISCO, CA and MINNEAPOLIS, MN -- (Marketwire) -- 02/22/12 -- Joyent Cloud, the public compute cloud designed for real-time applications, and enStratus, the leading provider of cloud infrastructure automation and management solutions, announced today the full integration of Joyent's Cloud API and management infrastructure into the enStratus cloud management platform. As a result, any enterprise deployed on enStratus can within minutes launch complex cloud deployments on the Joyent Cloud. Similarly, enStratus technology allows existing Joyent Cloud customers to closely monitor and enforce governance policies over resource utilization and costs in their cloud infrastructure. Further, with enStratus, cloud operations teams can seamlessly integrate Joyent Cloud compute resources into multi-cloud deployments.

The Joyent Cloud currently powers hundreds of billions of monthly processes for leading Internet brands such as Voxer, LinkedIn, ModCloth, TaskRabbit and Kabam. The partnership between enStratus and Joyent Cloud enables operations teams to easily view and optimize cloud management plans and to automate key elements of the cloud provisioning process. The enStratus API allows them to scale up detailed Joyent Cloud deployments with the most widely used configuration management tools. These management capabilities allow companies building applications that require low latency and lightning-fast end-user experiences to quickly scale up their compute infrastructure while maintaining tight control over costs, resource management, and security.

"As enterprises embrace the cloud, the tools to streamline management of these dynamic environments are critical to business operations," stated David Bagley, CEO of enStratus. "Joyent Cloud delivers performance, transparency and reliability to enterprises in fast-growing verticals like online games and mobile communications, so we are excited to partner with them to help their customers better manage their cloud deployments with enStratus."

New capabilities the enStratus offering brings to the Joyent Cloud include:

  • Key Management and Encryption -- The enStratus patent-pending security architecture holds all cloud credentials outside the cloud provider with automated encryption.
  • Access Controls -- Granular, fully customizable role-based security provides the right level of control for development, QA, business or partner teams.
  • Automation -- Automate the scaling of cloud infrastructure to meet demand and match service level requirements, using standard configuration management tools, such as Chef and Puppet.
  • Financial Controls -- Track and manage costs by customer or project by assigning billing codes with hard and soft spending caps.
  • API -- The enStratus API allows operations teams to extend, integrate or customize enStratus for specific requirements.

"Joyent Cloud has always offered extremely low-latency and superior reliability and performance," says Joyent Cloud General Manager Steve Tuck. "Thanks to this integration with enStratus, Joyent Cloud now incorporates best-in-class cloud management tools that enable enterprises not only to enjoy real-time performance but also to easily manage and meter resources and improve operational accountability."
