Joyent CEO Speaking Next Week at SYS-CON's Cloud Computing Expo November 19-21 in Silicon Valley
David Young consolidates development in a single place, Seattle, and makes the New York Times

David Young's Joyeur Blog

Recently, so much ink has been spilt on our VC-backed brethren racing for the cash-conserving hills. Why they weren’t shooting for revenue and profitability from day one is beyond us. Joyent believes when a company is built to be profitable from day one, market context is much less meaningful than the ability to expend effort and succeed. As companies move from CapEx to OpEx, a flight to quality in operations and product, companies such as Joyent are sure to benefit.

GigaOM and the NYT picked up today on our success in a down market. Congrats to my fellow Joyeurs!

We recently opened a Seattle office as a move to consolidate Joyent’s distributed development efforts with something concentrated in a specific place. You can read more about it here. Ben Black, recently of Microsoft, joins Joyent as VP, Research to help lead the efforts. Jason is moving up to Seattle as well.

Much more could be said about our decision to consolidate development in a single place. The tax imposed by a distributed team is heavy. We aren’t moving all our developers to Seattle, but we are committing to establishing a core.


David Young is part of a star-studded lineup of speakers at SYS-CON's 1st International Cloud Computing Conference & Expo. Between them, they'll be covering every aspect of the hottest IT topic for years, with not just Amazon but also IBM, Microsoft, Google, Yahoo, Intel, HP and a host of others all offering, using or developing high-end computing services typically described as “cloud computing” - through which massively scalable IT-related capabilities are provided as a service using Internet technologies.

Forrester Research analyst James Staten calls cloud computing "classic disruptive innovation - where the mainstream dismisses the product and small companies have time to create a real differentiated value." But there are so many offerings just now that what infrastructure architects are looking for above all is a set of organizing principles they can use to guide them in choosing between them all.

Such principles. and a host of associated topics, will be addressed in San Jose by a Top Speaker Faculty that includes:

  • Dr Werner Vogels - VP & CTO, Amazon.com (Keynote)
  • Mike Feinberg - Senior Vice President, Cloud Infrastructure Group, EMC
  • Steve Herrod - CTO, VMware
