Joyent is a global cloud computing software and services company offering cloud computing solutions worldwide since 2004.
Joyent licenses its cloud software, SmartDataCenter, to service providers, like Dell and ChinaCache, who deliver cloud services to their own customers. In addition, Joyent runs an instance of SmartDataCenter for some of the most innovative companies in the world, such as LinkedIn, Gilt Groupe and Kabam.
Joyent is the only cloud computing company that has developed a complete software stack, runs a major public cloud on that stack, and offers its cloud data center software to any company that wants to build a cloud. Because Joyent’s approach to cloud software is completely different from that of all other major cloud vendors, Joyent is able to deliver unprecedented economies of scale and competitive advantages to service providers in the form of higher hardware utilization and margins.
Based in San Francisco with offices around the world, Joyent is privately held and backed by Greycroft Partners and Intel Capital.
