Cloudant Data Layer as a Service Adds Support for Joyent Cloud

Cloudant and Joyent Partnership Provides Scalable Platform for Big Data Application Developers

SAN FRANCISCO, CA and BOSTON, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 04/11/12 -- Joyent Cloud, the public cloud designed for real-time, high-performance applications, and Cloudant, provider of a scalable Data Layer as a Service for data-driven web and mobile applications, today announced a partnership to provide developers with the ability to store, analyze and distribute application data across a global network of secure, high-performance data centers. Joyent Cloud provides public and private cloud computing software and services to popular Web applications including LinkedIn, Voxer, Gilt Groupe and TaskRabbit. Aside from Cloudant, Joyent Cloud also powers a growing number of cloud platform and software services providers including Nodejitsu, StackMob, and GameSalad.

By using Cloudant, Joyent customers can scale their application data layer up or down on demand through a simple management interface. "Making the Cloudant data layer available on Joyent Cloud helps ensure that our customers' applications run flawlessly at any scale," said Cloudant CEO Derek Schoettle. "This is particularly important for the data-intensive, real-time applications that many Cloudant and Joyent Cloud customers run."

The Cloudant Data Layer is a collection of multi-tenant and single-tenant (private) database clusters that are hosted and scaled across multiple top-tier data centers around the globe. Built on the Apache CouchDB document database, a RESTful JSON API, and built-in full-text search and incremental MapReduce, Cloudant delivers low-latency, highly-available data layer performance and pushes dynamic data closer to the edge. "Running on Joyent Cloud enables Cloudant to take advantage of specific caching and data backup features in the ZFS file system and delivers outstanding data layer performance and reliability," says Cloudant CTO Adam Kocoloski.

"This partnership creates a superior customer offering that leverages our high-performance cloud infrastructure and Cloudant's innovative data layer service to deliver a truly scalable big data store in the cloud to end customers," said Steve Tuck, General Manager of Joyent Cloud. "Having Cloudant offer their service on Joyent Cloud further validates our premise -- that for companies seeking to deliver high-performance cloud services, building on a better, differentiated cloud infrastructure matters more than ever."
