Cloud Software Company Joyent Raises $5 Million

Joyent, a San Francisco-based cloud computing software and service provider, has secured $5 million in debt funding according to an SEC filing.

The company, which was founded back in 2004, offers an integrated technology suite and related services geared towards service providers, medium-sized and large enterprises, and developers.

Its offerings include cloud software suite SmartDataCenter,, a public cloud service that aims to rival Amazon Web Services, and a Platform-as-a-Service based on Node.js, the open source server-side JavaScript development environment.

Customers include LinkedIn, Gilt Groupe, Kabam, Dell and AKQA.

We’ve contacted the company to learn who the investors are, and what they plan to do with the additional capital.

Joyent has now raised close to $30 million from investors like Intel Capital and Peter Thiel.
