Nimbula, led by former Amazon's Elastic Compute Cloud developer Chris Pinkham is now offering a free beta download of its software, which creates Amazon-like clouds behind the enterprise firewall that acts much like Amazon EC2, integrating with multiple hypervisors and operating systems to give developers and other users access to virtualized instances of servers and storage.
The software also controls access to public cloud resources, letting customers pursue a hybrid approach to cloud computing.
"Allowing customers to efficiently manage both on- and off-premises resources, Nimbula Director quickly and cost effectively transforms inflexible, inefficient and under-utilized private data centers into muscular, easily configurable compute capacity while supporting controlled access to off-premise clouds.
Nimbula Director provides powerful utility-grade cloud features like policy based authorization, enabling secure multi-tenancy, topology-independent distributed network security and monitoring and metering.
Nimbula Director also uniquely provides highly automated deployment and cloud management to scale and facilitates easy migration of existing apps into cloud by supporting multi-platform environments and flexible networking and storage."
