Nebula is dedicated to enabling all businesses to easily, securely and inexpensively deploy large private cloud computing infrastructures.
The proliferation of data in today’s world is fueling an “information revolution” across all industries. Nebula’s goal is to ignite a new era of global innovation by democratizing web scale computing, and making it accessible to every business in the world.
Built on Openstack, the Nebula Enterprise Cloud Appliance enables any business to build and manage the massive computing horsepower normally reserved for the corporate elite from hundreds or thousands of inexpensive servers.
Nebula was founded in April 2011 by Chris C. Kemp, Steve O’Hara and Devin Carlen, and named after a project that Kemp started at NASA Ames Research Center.
The company is privately held and venture-funded by Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers and Highland Capital Partners. Other investors include Google’s first investors, Andy Bechtolsheim, David Cheriton and Ram Shriram.
