Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers


Nimbula has released Nimbula Director, which is claims brings an "Amazon EC2-like experience" to the enterprise cloud.

At this still-early stage of the cloud IT era, a software vendor coming up with a bulletproof operating system for running public, private or hybrid clouds could find itself in a golden position in the future.

Usual-suspect candidates at this point include hypervisor developers VMware, Citrix and Microsoft, as well as systems providers Hewlett-Packard, IBM, Dell, Oracle, Cisco Systems and EMC—which all want to be all things to everybody.

Then there are the smaller but quicker-moving—and often more progressive—players. Nimbula is one of those.

The Mountain View, Calif.-based software developer, which pulls no punches in calling itself the Cloud Operating System Company, came out April 6 with Nimbula Director, which it says brings a familiar "Amazon EC2-like experience" to enterprises and service providers.

Director, which is licensed free of charge for small systems (up to 40 cores), is a purpose-built OS that aggregates difficult-to-deal-with silos of on-premises and off-premises resources into a single dashboard, so that information across a diverse system can be shared, stored and analyzed, if need be.
