"Joyent is now hosting applications built on Windows and Linux, opening the door to Web application providers who have some components built on those operating systems.

""We've bumped into situations where our specialized OS, which is really good for Java, PHP, and other languages used in traditional Web apps, wasn't as affective for people who had significant investment in Windows and Linux," said Adrian Ludwig, vice president of marketing at Joyent. "They had to rewrite or at least do some porting and in some instances that could be fairly significant."

"Joyent uses its own software, known as SmartOS, to run the virtualization in its data centers. The company says that the software allows it to get much better utilization of servers in its data centers than its competitors. That increase in efficiency translates into lower costs for customers, Ludwig said."
