Nimbula® Launches New Training Course to Help Customers Build and Use Private and Hybrid Clouds

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwire - Jan 18, 2012) - Nimbula, the Cloud Operating System Company, today announced the launch of its first hands-on Cloud Computing training course, "Building and Using a Cloud with Nimbula Director". This course will teach students how to build and administer private and hybrid cloud solutions.

Nimbula Director is powerful cloud software that works out of the box and can be used to implement a number of business enabling cloud use cases, such as deploying a private cloud in minutes instead of weeks or months.

To help customers achieve immediate benefits such as reducing the time and cost to build new application or infrastructure services without sacrificing security and control, Nimbula has built an industry-first Cloud Computing training course that educates and empowers organizations to implement real world cloud computing use cases such as: how to build a scalable platform to support web or SaaS applications, how to build a zero-touch data center, how to blend Amazon EC2-like scale, agility and efficiency with customization and control, and how to give traditional IT the same capabilities as public clouds.

"After completing our training course, our customers can rely on their key IT personnel to gain implementation perspective on their cloud use case and leave with the operational skills to build and administer a private or hybrid cloud solution," said Nishan Sathyanarayan, Director of Professional Services at Nimbula. "In addition to supporting our end customers, we also see our channel partners leveraging this course to build the foundational skills and competencies to help launch their own cloud practices and solutions."
