Joyent adds Trellis DCIM to its cloud-infrastructure package

Joyent and Emerson Network Power have added the latter’s data center infrastructure management (DCIM) solution Trellis to the hardware-and-software IT infrastructure package Joyent sells to companies that wish to provide cloud services.

San Francisco-based Joyent has developed its own high-performance infrastructure solution for delivering IT-as-a-Service, both providing such services on its own and (more recently) selling the solution to other providers.

Emerson’s Trellis is one of the leading solutions in the growing DCIM market. Forrester named Emerson and Schneider the dominant DCIM suppliers in the market in a report released in May.

The platform combines IT and facilities infrastructure management, doing both monitoring and control of power and cooling. Combined with Joyent’s orchestration layer, it will be able to track power consumption of virtual workloads and their impact on physical infrastructure, the companies said.

Joyent founder and CTO Jason Hoffman said Trellis would now become part of infrastructure builds his company recommends to its provider clients. While the company uses Trellis to manage its own cloud infrastructure, it does not expose the controls to its IaaS customers.

“We're not currently surfacing this type of interactivity but hope to make if part of the data that we expose,” Hoffman wrote in an email.

Trellis was partially built using Joyent-sponsored open-source software development framework called Node.js. The framework enables JavaScript developers to do server-side programming.

In Trellis, “Node.js is used for data ingress and egress along with some service end points (which is what Node is good at),” Hoffman said. “The remainder of the web application and stack is in Java.”

  • Do Industry Standards Hold Back Data Centre Innovation?

    Thu, 11 Jun 2015 14:00:00

    Upgrading legacy data centres to handle ever-increasing social media, mobile, big data and Cloud workloads requires significant investment. Yet over 70% of managers are being asked to deliver future-ready infrastructure with reduced budgets. But what if you could square the circle: optimise your centre’s design beyond industry standards by incorporating the latest innovations, while achieving a significant increase in efficiency and still maintaining the required availability?

  • The CFD Myth – Why There Are No Real-Time Computational Fluid Dynamics?

    Wed, 20 May 2015 14:00:00

    The rise of processing power and steady development of supercomputers have allowed Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) to grow out of all recognition. But how has this affected the Data Center market – particularly in respect to cooling systems? The ideal DCIM system offers CFD capability as part of its core solution (rather than as an external application), fed by real-time monitoring information to allow for continuous improvements and validation of your cooling strategy and air handling choices. Join DCIM expert Philippe Heim and leading heat transfer authority Remi Duquette for this free webinar, as they discuss: •Benefits of a single data model for asset management •Challenges of real-time monitoring •Some of the issues in CFD simulation, and possible solutions •How CFD can have a direct, positive impact on your bottom line Note: All attendees will have access to a free copy of the latest Siemens White Paper: "Using CFD for Optimal Thermal Management and Cooling Design in Data Centers".
