node.js and Joyent: Past, present and future

  1. 1. node.js and Joyent: Past, present and future CTO bryan@joyent.com Bryan Cantrill @bcantrill
  2. 2. Joyent: Before node.js • Founded in 2004 as a platform to host web applications, Joyent quickly grew to the broader scope of next-generation computing: elastic, multi-tenant, and service-oriented • Joyent’s belief: novel computing demands novel abstractions! • At the core was OS-based virtualization: Joyent was an early production user of FreeBSD jails — and then OpenSolaris zones • In 2009, Joyent went up-stack with server-side JavaScript and Smart Platform, a Perl + SpiderMonkey frankenstein platform
  3. 3. node.js • In November 2009, a nearly-broke Ryan Dahl begged JSConf EU to give him a speaking slot — and node.js was born:
  4. 4. Joyent and node.js: The beginning • node.js complemented our stack and vision: pure asynchrony + Unix abstractions + JavaScript on a fast, modern VM (V8) • While several companies offered Ryan employment after his JSConf EU talk, only Joyent offered him the prospects of working on node.js full-time — and entirely in the open • Ryan started at Joyent in early 2010; in November 2010, Joyent formally became the steward of node.js
  5. 5. Joyent and node.js: Into production • Among the earliest production users of node.js (0.2 FTW!), our emphasis has always been on real, deployed systems: • In situ production instrumentation via DTrace support • Postmortem debuggability via MDB support • We developed modules that we ourselves use and deploy, e.g.: • Bunyan: logging framework for node.js (+ DTrace support!) • Restify: framework for pure HTTP-based services • vasync: framework for asynchrony (+ debugging support!)
  6. 6. Joyent and node.js: A new foundation • We have been users of node.js first and foremost; node.js is at the core of our own production (open source!) microservice-based distributed systems: SmartDataCenter and Manta • Our use case is but one among many; to assure broader stewardship, we assembled a node.js Advisory Board in 2014 • It became clear that node.js was best served by a neutral foundation; in early 2015, we transitioned node.js to the (new) Node.js Foundation
  7. 7. Joyent and node.js: The present • node.js is in our bloodstream — but containers are our marrow • We have always believed that node.js and containers are a natural fit for one another! • Containers were popularized in 2015 with the rise of Docker, a system for container image management and deployment • In 2015, we announced Triton, our SmartDataCenter-based system for deploying Docker containers directly on the metal • With Triton, one manages only containers; there are no VMs!
  8. 8. Joyent and node.js: Towards the future! • We will remain involved with Node.js Foundation, and continue to support the community • e.g. our Node.js Innovator Program gives up to $25K Triton hosting credits + custom onboarding and training, viz. BitHound • We are very actively involved in the Cloud Native Computing Foundation and will continue to serve as an advocate and a representative for node.js in the industry! • We believe that Triton remains the best place to run node.js — and we look forward to many more years with node.js!
