Message Bus Puts Joyent Cloud to Work for Application Services

Message Bus recently announced a major partnership with Joyent that meant a big boost of power to Message Bus' already impressive array of systems. The combination of a pioneering firm in cloud-based infrastructure for e-mail and mobile messaging and a company that deals in cloud infrastructure for mobile applications and real-time Web functions adds up to a bright new day coming for cloud users.

More specifically, the partnership between Message Bus and Joyent helps to ensure that the Message Bus Global Delivery Network can continue to operate at the high levels of speed and efficiency that its users have come to expect by bringing in the kind of capability that Joyent has been offering with its own service. That means reductions in latency and improvements in flexibility and scalability for cloud users.

Not surprisingly, businesses generate a lot of messages. Joyent's founder and CTO, Jason Hoffman, has a good idea of just how many messages it generates, calling it a number in the "billions of messages per month." Thus, it doesn't come as much of a surprise that the successful transmission and receipt of said messages is a vital function for businesses that needs to be done and done well. But for most businesses, the successful delivery of messages from point A to point B isn't regarded as a core competency. That in turn allows companies like Message Bus, which have perfected message delivery down to an art, to step in and offer a means to get those messages reliably where they need to go.

Hoffman further elaborated on the importance of the partnership between Joyent and Message Bus, saying, "Enterprise messaging represents a huge market that demands fast, reliable and high-capacity solutions. Our cloud infrastructure is built from the ground up to meet these requirements, which include dynamic bursting, the ability to infinitely scale and an elastic environment. Using these tools, Message Bus has created a messaging infrastructure that drastically improves inbox deliverability."

The combination of Message Bus and Joyent doesn't just mean improvements in message delivery, however, as it also means a greater improvement in messages themselves. Hardware limitations that prevented some messages from even being a viable part of the messaging ecosystem are overcome, allowing for greater potential from the messaging infrastructure overall.

There's no denying that better efficiency is welcome in the workplace, and when improvements to both flexibility and overall capability also get figured into the system, it makes the overall package a far superior one in general. The combination of Joyent and Message Bus is likely to be a formidable one, and one that will make appearances in many offices looking to get a critical edge on the competition by improving collaboration across widespread areas of geography, as well as in buildings individually.
