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.”

  • Is Hyperconvergence a Viable Alternative to the Public Cloud?

    Thu, 31 Mar 2016 15:00:00

    Enterprise IT leaders are right to be skeptical of such bold claims. After all, is it really possible to deliver an on-premises infrastructure that delivers the same agility, elasticity, and cost-effectiveness of public cloud providers like Amazon Web Services? If you’re following the traditional IT model, with its many siloes and best-of-breed point solutions, the answer is, most likely, no. To truly deliver a viable alternative to public cloud, you need to look beyond traditional IT. Join Evaluator Group and SimpliVity to learn more about how hyperconverged infrastructure can deliver the efficiency, elasticity, and agility of public cloud."
