Joyent collaborates with Riverbed Technology to launch a Content Delivery Cloud

Posted by Paola Cornacchiola   |   Tuesday, September 17th, 2013   |  

On September 16 Joyent announced the availability of Riverbed Stingray & Joyent Content Delivery Cloud (CDC) Solution, result of its collaboration with Riverbed Technology.

The Joyent Riverbed product is a combination of public cloud infrastructure from Joyent and Riverbed Stingray Application Delivery Controller software which is supposed to improve performance and provide content owner flexibility without a content delivery network.

The Riverbed Stingray & Joyent CDC solution uses public or private infrastructure and it is offering a private content delivery network like experience for the delivery of a customer’s content. This collaboration is aiming to reduce the costs and enhance performance capabilities and security.

Among the features of the product:

  • Flexibility and Scalability: A customizable global infrastructure, rapidly turned on in a matter of minutes and adjusted in real time. With delivery services and capacity on demand, costs are reduced due to a decrease in the amount of bandwidth required to deliver applications and reduce host node capacity requirements.
  • Centralized Control: Private, custom-built infrastructure centrally administered by the customer organization. Delivering global reach and performance that is typically required for content delivery while the central control offers an easy insertion point for customers to incorporate business policy and SLAs. Operating in the Joyent cloud reduces the number of tools and touch points required to deploy and support the network end-to-end.
  • Better Security: Retaining visibility and control over the location and security of content, companies know where content is stored and that it will be delivered securely with SSL certificates stored on servers under their control. Content owners also enjoy compliance based security policy protection at the edge through the use of an application-level threat identification and mitigation mechanism such as Stingray Application Firewall available as part of Riverbed image bundles in the Joyent Cloud today.

Henry Wasik, chief executive officer, Joyent, said:

Building on our partnership with Riverbed, the Riverbed Stingray & Joyent CDC is a prime example of helping customers come up with more cost effective cloud solutions through innovation, better performance and lower costs can only come through insight and controls traditional CDN infrastructures can’t deliver.

Jeff Pancottine, senior vice president and general manager of Stingray at Riverbed, declared:

Riverbed and Joyent share a passion of innovation to deliver customers an unparalleled experience, running the Riverbed Stingray software ADC in the Joyent cloud provides the flexibility and control content owners require. Content demands can vary widely, and now for the first time these peaks and valleys can be addressed in a cost effective way.
