NEW YORK and PALO ALTO, Calif., March 21 — Continuuity, the industry's first Big Data application fabric, today announced a partnership with Joyent, Inc., the high-performance cloud infrastructure company. Continuuity products and related services will be available on the Joyent public cloud, a preferred cloud infrastructure provider for deployment of the Continuuity AppFabric.
The Continuuity AppFabric is an application runtime and data platform that sits on top of open source Hadoop components and is delivered as a Platform as a Service (PaaS). It is the first scale-out application server for Hadoop and HBase. Continuuity's PaaS enables developers to quickly and easily deploy their Big Data apps to a single tenant, hosted virtual private cloud (VPC). Development teams have access to a self-serve platform with DevOps tools and insights to allow managing and scaling of applications. They can use the Continuuity Developer Suite to create and deploy applications locally and then push them to a cloud environment on Joyent infrastructure with one click. With no changes to application code, applications are elastically scalable and ready for use in production.
"This partnership with Continuuity is a continuation of our commitment to bringing our expertise to the development and deployment of Big Data applications. Working together, we're helping to deliver the next generation cloud computing infrastructure that will enable big data workloads and applications," said Henry Wasik, president and CEO, Joyent. "Combining Continuuity with the scale and power of the Joyent Cloud will enable developers everywhere to keep ahead of the next generation of application development."
"Continuuity's partnership with Joyent is an important milestone in our mission to democratize Big Data application development, and we're excited to be working with them as a preferred cloud provider. By combining Joyent's high-performance cloud infrastructure with the Continuuity AppFabric, we are giving developers a complete set of capabilities to create Big Data apps," said Todd Papaioannou, co-founder and CEO at Continuuity. "Partnering with leading cloud Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) providers allows us to make it fast and easy to build, deploy, scale and manage Big Data apps."
