Cloud computing company Joyent announced today that it has landed $15 million in a third round of funding led by Intel Capital.

Joyent provides cloud computing services to companies – allowing them to take advantage of Joyent’s platform instead of investing in actual hardware. It’s customers includes the professional social networking site LinkedIn and luxury sample-sale site Gilt Groupe.

Joyent says that the funding will be used to extend its Smart Technologies — which includes SmartMachines, its cloud-based virtual machines, and SmartPlatform, its server-side Javascript platform which “makes the entire data center work like a single computer.”

The company has recently expanded its operations in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa, and now has data centers in China; Andover, Mass.; Emeryville and San Diego, Calif. and Dallas, Texas.

The funding is part of Intel Capital’s recently announced $30 million investment in several companies, and was assisted by Greycroft Partners and new investor Liberty Global. We reported that Joyent landed $7 million last month in funding, but the company tells us that’s actually part of this current round.
