Joyent, Inc. Key Developments

Joyent, Inc. Launches Triton Elastic Container Infrastructure

Joyent, Inc. announced Triton Elastic Container Infrastructure, a platform designed to radically simplify container deployments in production at scale while delivering enterprise-grade security, software-defined networking and bare metal performance. Triton is now available for on-premises deployments, transforming an entire physical data center into a single, elastic Docker host, or through the Joyent Public Cloud. Developers love Docker for the portability, productivity and cost efficiency it offers to distributed applications. On the operations side, Triton provides an enhanced Docker run-time environment that brings the simplicity and efficiency of the developer experience to operators. Triton delivers secure infrastructure containers plus software defined networking for containers, while eliminating host management complexities and providing bare metal performance. Triton enhances Docker deployments with: Simplified Host Management: Triton transforms an entire data center into a single, elastic Docker host, enabling developers to deploy and scale an application from laptop to production with the push of a button; Security: Triton delivers production-grade security to containers, enabling worry-free, multi-tenant deployments and cloud-scale economics; Networking: Treating containers as a first class citizen on the network, Triton delivers high performance, software-defined networking that is easy to manage; Bare Metal Performance: Fully leveraging OS virtualization, Triton eliminates the need for virtual machine hosts and delivers bare-metal performance to containers.

Joyent, Inc. Announces Linux Branded Zones and Extension of Docker Engine

Joyent, Inc. announced two open source initiatives and the general availability of a first-class container service in the Joyent Public Cloud to accelerate the adoption of application containers in the enterprise. Docker application containers are perhaps the most transformative data center innovation of the decade. However, there remain limitations in the areas of security, virtual networking and persistence that present challenges for enterprises looking to deploy Docker in support of production applications. The open source initiatives announced, Linux Branded Zones (LXz) and the extension of Docker Engine to SmartDataCenter, will deliver proven, multi-tenant security and bare metal performance to Linux applications running in Docker application containers. A New Platform for Container Deployments in Linux Branded Zones (LXz): Security concerns related to the default Linux infrastructure containers leveraged by Docker have led all major public and private cloud providers to advocate running Docker containers on top of legacy hardware hypervisors. With LXz, user can run Linux applications, including those running in Docker Containers, natively on secure OS virtualization without an intervening hardware hypervisor layer. Leveraging LXz, each infrastructure container is given its own virtualized network stack, consistent with the network topologies deployed in most enterprises on December 3, 2014. LXz also delivers containers a persistence layer based upon the ZFS file system, making the management of multi-container application environments secure, robust and simple. LXz is being developed in the open, is available for beta usage today, and will become broadly available in the first quarter of 2015. Extending Docker Engine to SmartDataCenter: Docker Engine, the open source runtime from Docker, Inc. that builds, runs and orchestrates Docker containers, is now being integrated into SmartDataCenter, Joyent's open source cloud orchestration software that serves as the backbone of Joyent Public Cloud. Working together, LXz and Docker Engine for SmartDataCenter will provide a secure, production-grade environment for Linux applications running in Docker containers. Users will be able to choose whether to leverage the Joyent Public Cloud, SmartDataCenter or the open source code for their deployments. Like LXz, the Docker Engine for SmartDataCenter is being developed in the open, is available for beta usage today, and will become broadly available in the first quarter of 2015. Joyent Container Service: Joyent Public Cloud users can now leverage the Joyent Container Service to provision and manage Docker hosts and containers in the Joyent Public Cloud. Features of the Joyent Container Service include a security gateway, private registries and integrated logging and monitoring of Docker containers and hosts.
