Challenger: Joyent

Small service provider Joyent focuses on cloud services and offers fixed-size, paid-by-the-VM public and private cloud IaaS.

Strengths: The company emphasizes application performance and includes network-based acceleration. It deploys portal-based performance analytics, using the DTrace framework for application instrumentation, Gartner said.

Caution: Joyent's portfolio of services focuses solely on the hosting use case. Gartner calls it a "best-effort cloud" and said it is very developer-centric. Joyent highlights APIs and the use of third-party tools, rather than its own portal capabilities.
