Nimbula and Electric Cloud Release Free Plug-In That Provisions Cloud Environments for Developers

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA and SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - Oct 6, 2011) - Today at the Electric Cloud Summit, Nimbula, the Cloud Operating System Company, announced an integrated solution with Electric Cloud so that development teams using ElectricCommander can now automatically manage and execute application build-test-deploy processes on Nimbula Director cloud resources. With this integration, developers can focus on the applications development process without worrying about the management of the underlying infrastructure resources.

Nimbula Director is 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.

"Nimbula recognizes that developers are highly focused on application lifecycle development often through a DevOps methodology. They have infrastructure requirements but don't necessarily wish to manage them," said Reza Malekzadeh, VP of Marketing at Nimbula. "Nimbula Director is the underlying flexible, automated cloud foundation that provides resources when needed and reclaims them when they're no longer needed."

"Cloud infrastructure is widely used among engineering teams in the enterprise to support software development, testing and deployment. Nimbula Director is designed to service that market," said Anders Wallgren, CTO of Electric Cloud. "With today's announcement from Nimbula and Electric Cloud, teams can automatically manage the lifecycle of cloud resources in the context of the development process to achieve greater development agility, create higher quality software and speed time-to-market."
