Additionally, the company will be investing significant resources to further develop the Triton DataCentersuite.” Wilkens added.  

In a press release, Joyent stated, “It’s a very exciting and proud moment for theTriton/SmartOS community and customers as we secure a promising future and a new spark of passion, investment and roadmap plans under the leadership of MNX Solutions.
