Joyent does not care
The management dashboard stopped working and I could not access my account. There have been multiple issues with my ability to server my apps and manage my account.

I turned my instances off months ago. The instances are not active, but I kept the images in the dashboard in case I had a change of heart. Joyent continued to charge me for inactive instances.

I emailed their support and they will not credit me for the instances THAT ARE NOT ACTIVE!!!!

This is crazy and not cool.

Revoked Lifetime Contract
Joyent are scammers. They sold me a lifetime hosting service for $499 and sent me an update saying they are taking it away - but not refunding my money.

Scam alert! Poor customer service!

Stay away from this company. The ran an unauthorized charge to my card for $148 and I have been on the phone for 2 days now trying to get it taken care of. Every time I call I get told something else, they say that my cancellation request is being handled but the next person will tell me that they never received it. They play games which I can't understand why they would risk their reputation and waste their own time. I am disputing the charge through my bank but this has been an absolute nightmare!

Joyent Expands Triton Elastic Container Infrastructure, Adds Support For Container-Native Linux On Bare Metal - Joyent Inc., the container-native infrastructure company, today announced the ability to run container-native Linux images directly on bare metal with Joyent Triton Elastic Container Infrastructure, released into general availability earlier this week.

While Triton is compatible with all major Linux distributions, Joyent and Canonical engineers have collaborated to produce certified, container-native Ubuntu images optimized for Triton.

Joyent could be the worst hosting company on the planet. I own a Facebook application and i pay joyent montly fees to host it. I use 2 servers, one app and one DB server. I have limited knowledge of running servers so i pay joyent $199 per service to fix issues and tune the DB. Now the DB is running very slow. I email them to get help, they send me a bunch of jargain, which i dont understand, that is why i pay them extra.
They have the worst customer support, it takes forever to hear back from them. Still waiting to hear from them after 2 days on how to fix the issues they fixed a month ago.
DO NOT SIGN UP with JOYENT, you will regret it.
