MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., April 2 – Nebula, the cloud systems company, today announced the general availability of Nebula One, the world's first enterprise cloud computer. Nebula One was built from the ground up to power the next generation of big data, web, and mobile applications – while addressing enterprise security and management requirements and avoiding vendor lock-in.
Nebula One is a turnkey private cloud system that provides compute, network and storage services through a simple self-service interface and popular APIs, using industry-standard servers from vendors such as HP, IBM, and Dell.
"The Nebula One delivers on Nebula's mission to democratize cloud computing by bringing the simplicity, agility, and operational efficiency of the world's largest Internet companies to all enterprises at a fraction of the cost of public cloud services," said Chris C. Kemp, co-founder and CEO of Nebula. Previous cloud solutions often required users to put in hours of work to provision and maintain their computing environment. The Nebula One private cloud system frees the organization to focus on applications instead of infrastructure.
Market-leading enterprises have been testing early versions of Nebula's product for the past year. In many industries, advances in infrastructure are driving the need for a new generation of computing technology that is an order of magnitude more efficient than what's available today. With the Nebula One, the ability to deploy pre-certified servers from vendors that customers already trust replaces the need for expensive, specialized computing infrastructure.
PARC has selected Nebula to power their private cloud infrastructure. "PARC researchers can now use and reuse the readily-available compute resources they need from the Nebula One cloud, provisioning in minutes what once took days to manually provision or months to procure," said Walt Johnson, Vice President, Intelligent Systems Lab, PARC.
At the core of the Nebula One cloud system is the Nebula Cloud Controller, a hardware appliance that turns racks of certified industry-standard servers into a scalable on-premise infrastructure-as-a-service cloud system. Nebula One runs Cosmos, Nebula's distributed enterprise cloud operating system, which builds on OpenStack to provide a rich self-service user experience and compatibility with Amazon Web Services and OpenStack APIs. While a single-rack deployment is enough for many medium-sized businesses, the Nebula One system can scale to multi-rack deployments to meet the needs of large enterprises. The Nebula One is available for purchase today. For more information, and to learn more about purchasing a Nebula One system, visit www.nebula.com.
Nebula is dedicated to enabling all enterprises to easily, securely and inexpensively deploy private cloud computing infrastructures. Nebula makes the Nebula One, the world's first cloud computer, enabling any business to easily build a scale-out private computing cloud from racks of industry-standard servers. Nebula is privately held and venture-funded by Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, Comcast Ventures, and Highland Capital Partners. Other investors include Innovation Endeavors, and Google's first investors, Andy Bechtolsheim, David Cheriton and Ram Shriram. For more information, visit Nebula at www.nebula.com.
