Appliance Deployment: Joyent Unveils SmartMachine Appliance for MongoDB

By Rajani Baburajan, TMCnet Contributor


Joyent, a provider of cloud computing software and services, has launched a smart appliance deployment solution for MongoDB products in the online gaming, mobile, social network and e-commerce sectors.

The SmartMachine solution is a purpose-built NoSQL cloud appliance designed to run applications with the lowest possible latency and the highest possible availability and reliability, according to company officials.

To develop this solution, Joyent has worked closely with 10gen, the initiator, contributor and continual sponsor of MongoDB. The company provides production support, training, consulting and online management services for this innovative open source database

"We're excited to work with Joyent to improve the experience of running MongoDB in Joyent's Cloud," said Max Schireson, president of 10gen, in a statement. "Joyent's Cloud is enjoying great success, and we are happy to be an important part of that ecosystem."

The new appliance deployment solution for MongoDB runs as a database on top of Joyent's SmartOS cloud operating system. SmartOS is the only carrier-grade, high availability operating system in the cloud that delivers instant capacity bursting of up to 800 percent and on-the-fly MongoDB resizing with no reboot.

With the help of the ZFS file system, the solution provides 100 percent data integrity.  Additionally, Joyent Cloud Analytics with DTrace deliver point-and-click root cause analysis of latencies. Security is provided through the use of Zones, which protect vCPUs from other cloud users.

"We chose to release this product during the week of the MongoSV conference to respond to requests from customers for this solution, and to underscore the strategic importance of our partnership," said Steve Tuck, general manager of the Joyent Cloud. "MongoDB is a data store that is on the cutting edge of web applications technology, and we are very excited to be working with 10gen."
