Zeus Partners With Joyent Helping to Make Cloud Computing a Reality
|Pressemitteilung von: Zeus Technology|
(openPR) - Zeus Technology, the only software-based application delivery company, and Joyent, one of the premier cloud computing vendors, today announced a partnership that will provide a more flexible and cost-effective cloud computing infrastructure to their customers. Zeus now provides its advanced ZXTM traffic management software within Joyent Accelerators - virtualized servers that deliver a highly scalable and fast on-demand infrastructure for websites and web applications. |
Zeus’ software solution enables Joyent to not only provide their customers dedicated application delivery services, but also allows customers the opportunity to purchase these services from Joyent on flexible contracts without the need to pay up-front for licenses. Zeus’ solutions will be offered for free for application developers. This pay-as-you-go model removes a significant business risk which has been traditionally associated with hardware solutions in cloud computing.
Joyent works with over 20,000 customers across the globe including LinkedIn and Facebook, powering over 25% of the social networking giant’s daily application traffic. Some of the customer benefits from having dedicated application delivery services in the cloud include the ability to have dedicated caching, application filtering and comprehensive traffic reporting. This removes a barrier that prevented many businesses from putting their trust, and their business future in the cloud.
Paul Brennan, CEO of Zeus, said: “With our partnership cloud computing becomes a reliable and affordable reality for organizations of all sizes that are economically strapped, but require all the power of an enterprise data center. Proprietary hardware simply cannot meet the dynamic needs of cloud vendors in a cost-effective manner. By working with Joyent, we now offer all customers powerful application traffic management services – something that will accelerate adoption of cloud computing in the very near future.”
According to David Young, CEO of Joyent, “By adding Zeus to our cloud infrastructure we are making a deliberate step forward in the evolution of enterprise cloud computing. Zeus’ powerful products allow us to provide enhanced flexibility, better control and superior visibility to our customers while reducing their overall cost of managing their applications, further enhancing the value the cloud delivers.”
Founded in 1995, Zeus Technology provides application delivery software to ensure applications are faster, highly available and easy to manage. Zeus’ ZXTM solution lowers costs for data center space and power, cuts the cost of bandwidth and offers the highest scalability of any application delivery controller or load balancer in the industry.
As the only software application delivery solution available, the Zeus products are flexible whatever your deployment environment; a purpose-built Zeus appliance, standard servers, blades, or virtualized environments. Zeus holds strategic partnerships with world-class companies such as AMD, Dell, Egenera, HP, IBM, Intel, Sun Microsystems, Qualcomm and VMware. Zeus powers over 1 million sites across the world and provides web infrastructure solutions to over 800 customers including: BT, ITV, China Telecom, NASA, PLAY.COM, The Institute of Financial Services, Hotel.de and STA Travel.
