Dow Jones VentureWire Names Nimbula a 'Company to Watch'

Newest Accolade Comes as Nimbula Showcases Nimbula Director at VMworld 2010 Europe

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwire - October 13, 2010) -  Nimbula, the Cloud Operating System Company, today announced that Dow Jones VentureWire named it one of 50 companies to watch in The Wall Street Journal at This news comes as Nimbula is demonstrating Nimbula Director in Booth #109 at VMworld 2010 Europe this week.

Nimbula, which emerged from stealth mode in June 2010, was founded by former Amazon executives Chris Pinkham and Willem van Biljon, who led the development of the Amazon EC2 public cloud service. Nimbula's business and technology focus is on blending EC2-like scale, agility and efficiency with private infrastructure customization and control. Nimbula recently closed a Series B round of financing -- bringing the total to more than $20 million in funding from VCs Accel Partners and Sequoia Capital.

"Enterprises want the same benefits of agility, automation and scale demonstrated by public cloud services such as Amazon EC2 behind their firewall. Although the number of private and hybrid cloud solutions is increasing rapidly, discerning which solution is best suited to your organization can be difficult," said Reza Malekzadeh, VP of Marketing at Nimbula. "This recognition from Dow Jones VentureWire validates the market opportunity and the strength of our team, vision and architecture."

The Dow Jones VentureWire listing is the latest in a series of accolades for Nimbula. Nimbula was recently named one of the most exciting cloud computing startups to keep an eye on, was a GigaOM Structure 2010 LaunchPad! Finalist and was dubbed one of three cloud properties ready to burst by Fortune.
