  2. 2. 1SecurityinJoyentCloudSecurity in Joyent CloudMajority of business IT professionals are familiar with the benefits of cloud computing. However owing tosecurity vulnerabilities in cloud computing infrastructures, many are yet to explore the prospective of usingpublic or private cloud computing in their businesses. Joyent Smart Technology solutions improve cloudsecurity as compared to traditional techniques.Let’s take a look at some of the unique features of Joyent Smart Technology.Joyent Security Approach: Secure ServicesJoyent completely supports industry standards and the best practices in cloud and network infrastructuresecurity. It has developed and deployed an architecture that offers security to its public and private cloudcustomers. Joyent’s Smart Technologies architecture offers greater flexibility and scalability to itscustomers while its unique security framework provides broader and deeper protections to customer dataand applications.Joyent SmartOS: Hardened KernelJoyent SmartOS is a solid, hardened foundation for applications and is an integral part of Joyent SmartTechnologies architecture. It has a tightly secured layer between applications and the underlying hardwareand OS. Joyent SmartOS integrates with its Smart DataCenter management and SmartPlatformdevelopment environment.SmartMachine SecurityJoyent SmartOS offers and allocates CPU, memory, disk and network I/O for customers to run theirapplications with SmartMachines like other virtual operating systems. What makes Joyent different andbetter is that Joyent SmartMachines offer virtual computing resources within individual containers. Thusthe virtual memory and disk are completely separated resulting in better customization, scaling virtualresources for customer, greater control and security.

It controls the costs of CPU memoryand server storage space and provides customers with idle CPU that would otherwise go unused, withoutany financial burden.Smart Security for Traditional Virtual MachinesJoyent SmartOS has similar smart security characteristics as traditional virtual machines like VMware andXEN when they run on Joyent cloud. Joyent supports systems tightly coupled to legacy operating systemslike Windows or Linux and enables the best practices for security and performance. Clients with packagedapplications that are not tightly coupled with Windows or Linux can also run those applications on top ofJoyent SmartMachines for greater security, performance and scalability.Smart DataCenter SecurityJoyent Smart DataCenter supports dynamic VLANs and enables Joyent cloud administrators to segmentmulti-tenant customers from one another at any time. For greater security flexibility, customers canrequest multiple layers of security within their own secure LAN segment. The management of Joyent cloudresources is through centralized operating system so control and security is streamlined and simplified.SmartOS does not allow ring 0 or kernel access from management facilities or persistent resources withSmartMachines thus reducing the risk of multiple threats to kernel.Joyent Cloud Adds Complete Control
