Posted: June 25, 2013 in Uncategorized

Joyent, the high-performance cloud infrastructure and big data analytics company, today announced the availability ofJoyent Manta Storage Service, a next-generation cloud object store and data services platform that brings compute and analysis capabilities directly to customers’ data in the cloud. By removing the need to manage infrastructure and move data, Joyent Manta Storage Service enables enterprises to process big data faster, more easily, more securely and at a lower cost than ever before.

The new cloud storage service allows for the execution of compute tasks such as log analysis, search index generation, financial analysis and any other data-intensive tasks without any data movement or any setup of compute clusters or processing software. Code is brought in parallel to physical servers in secure containers while data is automatically merged using the industry-standard Map/Reduce pattern. “Copying data across a network from storage onto a compute cluster can take hours. Joyent Manta Storage Service strips the need to invest any time moving the data around, making ad-hoc querying and analysis near-instantaneous, seamless and cost-effective,” said Konstantin Gredeskoul, CTO, Wanelo. “We are now able to perform complex cohort analysis and retention reports across hundreds of gigabytes of data in a couple of minutes. When compared to traditional methods such as data warehousing, this is game changing.”

“Fifty percent of the world’s smartphone traffic goes through Ericsson and we are continuously evaluating new technologies to increase the ability of the network to manage growing data volumes in the most responsive, secure, cost effective ways possible,” said Vish Nandlall, Ph.D., CTO & Head of Strategy and Marketing for Ericsson North America. “Joyent’s new compute-on-storage innovation is a fundamental paradigm shift that changes the economics and utility of object storage and high-performance big data analysis.”

“Joyent and Dell have a solid history of collaboration. Most recently they became an initial member of the Dell Cloud Partner Program to help provide more choice and flexibility in cloud solutions to Dell customers,” said Kevin Jones, vice president, Dell Services. “With this new cloud storage service, Joyent provides an example of what today’s cloud customers are asking for — a durable, accessible and secure storage solution.” In addition, to ensure enterprise customers are able to easily and securely migrate data from existing NAS, backup and archive storage solutions to Manta, Joyent has partnered with data storage management company Panzura to enable enterprises to quickly and easily move large volumes of unstructured data into the Joyent Manta Storage Service with confidence from both cloud and on-premise storage systems.
