MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Aug. 1 — Nimbula, the Cloud Operating System Company, today announced that EPAM Systems, a leading global software engineering and IT consulting provider, implemented Nimbula Director, the most advanced cloud computing software for building and managing private, hybrid and public clouds.
Headquartered in the United States, EPAM Systems employs more than 7,300 IT professionals and provides services to clients worldwide using a global delivery model through its client facing and delivery operations in North America and Europe. EPAM's core competencies include complex software product engineering for leading global software and technology vendors, as well as development, testing, maintenance and support of mission critical business applications and vertically oriented IT consulting services for Forbes Global 2000 corporations.
To enhance its delivery model, EPAM selected Nimbula Director to create a geographically distributed community cloud that addresses its need to increase its productivity, quality and cost-effectiveness of delivering services and project and infrastructure management.
"EPAM tested several systems that claimed to be 'EC2-like,'" said Eli Feldman, Vice President of Cloud Solutions and Services at EPAM. "However, Nimbula Director provided a better solution out-of-the-box. Other systems were complex to install and configure, difficult to manage, not as reliable and priced unattractively. We liked the concept of having a product that included all functionality in one SKU at a competitive price. Federation to EC2 was a critical part of the project. For the past year, Nimbula provided exceptional support for their product."
