Cloud computing provider Joyent is determined to catch up to industry leader Amazon Web Services (AWS). With that goal in mind, the company has introduced thirteen new server instance types that closely resemble those available from AWS. In addition, it has lowered prices so that they mirror Amazon’s as closely as possible.
“As people move off of Amazon [Web Services], we want them to be able to slide over to the equivalent instance,” said Joyent CEO Henry Wasik.
Earlier this week, Dell announced that it would no longer develop its own cloud computing services but would instead resell Joyent’s offerings, as well as those of other partners.
