Emerson, Joyent to provide industrialized cloud services

by CXOtoday News Desk    Sep 25, 2012

Industrialized cloudEmerson Network Power has partnered with Joyent to address the need for industrialized cloud services. The resultant solution will combine Joyent’s software-defined data center suite SmartDatacenter with Emerson’s Trellis platform for DCIM.

Built partially with Joyent’s Node.js runtime, the Trellis platform runs on the Joyent cloud today. By integrating the Trellis platform into its cloud management stack, Joyent will be able to improve ease of use, industrialization, efficiency and sustainability for customers of its cloud services. The Trellis platform will become a tightly integrated component of the Joyent Smartdatacenter. The commercialization of this fully integrated, standardized solution is planned for the first half of 2013.

“Our partnership will enable us to offer a unique, tightly integrated, modular, highly efficient solution that optimizes the entire infrastructure based on the energy consumption of application workloads,” said Jason Hoffman, founder and CTO of Joyent.

Combining Emerson Network Power’s critical infrastructure insight through the Trellis platform with Joyent’s orchestration layer, the two companies will be able to track the energy consumption of virtual workloads and the impact each virtual workload has on the physical infrastructure.
