If you haven’t heard by now, Joyent has recently open sourced SmartDataCenter and the Manta object storage platform. Most people probably don’t realize it yet but this is a really big deal. Mad props to everyone at Joyent involved in this massive effort!
I have worked happily in the EDU sector for over 14 years building infrastructure and services to support faculty research, but decided recently that a change of pace would be healthy. I am therefore excited, humbled, and privileged to now be working with the terrific and insanely smart folks at Joyent.
