So yeah, Joyent, you know

As the former corporate steward of Node.js, co-founder of the Node.js Foundation, and one of its largest-scale production users, Joyent is uniquely equipped to deliver the highest level of support for powerful application frameworks and APIs.

Upcoming Changes to Our Cloud Business

Beyond the public cloud though, we had also developed a single-tenant cloud offering for cloud-mature, hyperscale users like Samsung, who demand vastly improved cloud costs and a way to have more control over their cloud experience. As that single-tenant cloud business has expanded, the resources required to support it have grown as well, which has led us to a difficult decision: Starting in November, we will be scaling back the availability of the Joyent Public Cloud to customers of our single-tenant cloud offering.

This means our current Joyent Public Cloud customers will need to find a new home and we are committed to working closely with your team over the coming five months to transition your applications and infrastructure as seamlessly as possible. We have a heartfelt sense of responsibility to you, and are immensely grateful for having the privilege to work with so many great companies and individuals over the years.

EOL of Joyent Public Cloud

Joyent Public Cloud EOL
The Joyent Public Cloud (Triton Cloud) will reach End-of-Life (EOL) on November 9, 2019. The Joyent Public Cloud / Triton Cloud, including the my.joyent.com user login and customer-facing APIs, will no longer accept new customers as of June 6, 2019, and will discontinue serving existing customers upon EOL on November 9th.


Just to illustrate how EOL works outside of Flash and Adobe, here the days between those two dates are 157 days, so yeah if you are using the Joyent public cloud you have that much (about 5 months) to migrate somewhere else.

Another thing, your product (eg. Node.js) can be all the rage, your cloud solution (Joyent public cloud) can be all the rage, and yet an EOL can still happen, why? because your big clients are taking over all your resources.

Live and learn.
