Nimbula Partners With Supermicro to Provide an Easy Path to Deploy Private and Public Cloud Solutions - June 7, 2011
New York, NY – June 7, 2011 – Today at the Cloud Summit East, Nimbula, the Cloud Operating System Company, announced that it has partnered with Supermicro to enable “Plug and Go” deployments of private or public cloud solutions.
As customers look to implement cloud computing solutions, they struggle to understand the architectural and operational impacts of what it means to build a private or public cloud, especially when it comes to hardware compatibility and requirements. Now customers can purchase Supermicro servers and bundles optimized for the Nimbula Director platform so they can benefit from the same IT trends, architectural assumptions and best practices which underpin the most successful public clouds in the world.
“Awareness of IT cost and infrastructure benefits in private and public cloud computing is reaching the masses,” said Wally Liaw, Vice President, International Sales of Super Micro Computer, Inc. “Supermicro’s cloud-ready server solutions are an ideal computing platform for Nimbula Director. Supermicro’s application optimized systems combined with Nimbula’s expertise in cloud deployment automation, operation, and scalability will provide any size enterprise or service provider with an accelerated, cost-effective path to evolving cloud services.”
Based on Nimbula's Cloud Operating System technology, Nimbula Director delivers Amazon EC2-like services to both enterprises and service providers with high levels of scalability, automation, fine grained identity control and next generation networking. Allowing customers to efficiently manage both on- and off-premises resources, Nimbula Director quickly and cost-effectively transforms hardware into Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS).
“With so many enterprises and managed service providers beginning to deploy public-, private-and hybrid-cloud solutions, it is critical that we minimize the technical and operational hurdles they will face,” said Martin Buhr, Vice President of Sales and Business Development at Nimbula. “Instant installation and automation of key processes translates to greater operational agility and lower costs. We are excited about the ways in which these combined Supermicro – Nimbula offerings will enable ‘plug and go’ scenarios for clouds, both for initial deployments and for subsequent capacity expansions.”
