Joyent Launches Commercial Cloud Computing Platform in China
Joyent, Inc., a provider of Enterprise-Class Cloud Computing, today announced the expansion of its Cloud Computing business to China. Joyent becomes China’s first Cloud Computing vendor at a time where computing infrastructure is in very high demand. The company’s data center is located in the Qinhuangdao Economic and Technological Development Zone (QETDZ), Hebei Province, China.
“China is the world’s fastest growing economy and Joyent is there with the country’s first local Cloud Computing offering”, said David Young, CEO and Founder of Joyent. “This is definitely a very exciting and positive move for Joyent. We would especially like to thank our partners, QETDZ and Intel for their support in making this expansion possible. We are looking forward to providing the Chinese developer community and China’s enterprises with world-leading Cloud Computing technology.”
“Intel is pleased to announce its strategic technology collaboration with Joyent at the launch of its Cloud Computing platform in China,” said Jason Waxman, Intel’s General Manager for High Density Computing. “Joyent’s innovative infrastructure, based on the Intel Xeon processor 5500 series, will bring both the efficiency and performance that’s needed to meet the growing demand for cloud computing in China.”
In 1984, the State Council approved the QETDZ as one of China’s first state-level economic and technological development zones. It is currently the only development zone in the Hebei Province. During 2008, QETDZ has endeavored to develop the data industry and coined the name of the region as “Data Valley”.
