Nimbula Releases Nimbula Director 1.5

Expands Cloud Partner Ecosystem

Nimbula on Monday announced the immediate availability of Nimbula Director 1.5, an Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) for managing compute and storage resources. The software helps enterprises and service providers build powerful private, public and hybrid cloud infrastructure and is available for download at: http://nimbula.com.

Nimbula Director 1.5 supports a geographically distributed cloud, an industry first. The software can manage this multi-site cloud from a single view. This improves the cloud experience for end users because they now have a single login from which they can access any resource worldwide and deploy their workloads to any site in a self-service manner.

In addition to executing on the core vision of a global cloud, Nimbula has delivered critical functionality for taking Nimbula Director clouds into production while ensuring simple and efficient operations with these features:

  • Policy based automation for compute and storage that delivers an extremely simple mechanism for requesting resources.
  • Persistent block store that offers the self-service interfaces of cloud storage with enterprise-class service level selection across a wide range of vendors.
  • Simplicity with flexibility provides a customizable installer for packaging a choice of operating system, drivers and management software.

Cloud Partner Ecosystem
Nimbula continues to grow its best-of-breed partner ecosystem to expand support of Nimbula Director from Platform as a Service (PaaS) and DevOps application lifecycle management to persistent storage solutions.

Nimbula announced partnerships with Atalanta Systems, Electric Cloud and Standing Cloud in order to provide the optimal platform for developers to build and deploy applications.

Nimbula also announced partnerships with Gluster and Scality to expand Nimbula Director's support for persistent storage solutions with world-class storage leaders.

Nimbula now supports Scality's RING Organic Storage by providing access for virtual machines to Scality's object storage located either in a local or remote cluster. With Scality, Nimbula provides a complete end-to-end compute and storage cloud solution.
