Zeus and Joyent Create Cloud Computing Partnership

Zeus’ solutions free for application developers

Zeus Technology has announced a partnership that will provide a more flexible and cost-effective cloud computing infrastructure to their customers. Zeus now provides its advanced ZXTM traffic management software within Joyent Accelerators - virtualized servers that deliver a highly scalable and fast on-demand infrastructure for websites and web applications.

Zeus' software solution enables Joyent to not only provide their customers dedicated application delivery services, but also allows customers the opportunity to purchase these services from Joyent on flexible contracts without the need to pay up-front for licenses. Zeus' solutions will be offered for free for application developers. This pay-as-you-go model removes a significant business risk which has been traditionally associated with hardware solutions in cloud computing.

Joyent works with over 20,000 customers across the globe, including LinkedIn and Facebook, powering over 25% of the social networking giant's daily application traffic. Some of the customer benefits from having dedicated application delivery services in the cloud include the ability to have dedicated caching, application filtering and comprehensive traffic reporting.
