Samsung Acquires Joyent for Container-Native Platform

Samsung Electronics has acquired Joyent, a start-up based in San Francisco that delivers container-native infrastructure, offering public cloud and private cloud software solutions for real-time web and mobile applications. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Since its inception, just over ten years ago, Joyent has developed Node.js, a Javascript runtime, into a de facto standard for web, mobile and IoT architectures. Joyent now offers Triton, a containers as a service solution, and Manta, a scalable object storage solution.

As a result of this acquisition, Samsung will become an anchor tenant for Joyent’s Triton and Manta solutions. Joyent said Samsung will bring it scale, financial muscle, and a strong partner for innovation. Joyent will continue as an independent subsidiary of Samsung.

“Samsung evaluated a wide range of potential companies in the public and private cloud infrastructure space with a focus on leading-edge scalable technology and talent. In Joyent, we saw an experienced management team with deep domain expertise and a robust cloud technology validated by some of the largest Fortune 500 customers,” said Injong Rhee, CTO of the Mobile Communications business at Samsung Electronics
