With its new professional services offering, it will help businesses build the hardware and software infrastructure for a private cloud, help with architecting applications to take advantage of the cloud and assist in creating hybrid clouds that run internally and extend to AWS when more compute power is required.
“We’re seeing a lot of demand and traction from customers who were born and grown on public cloud infrastructure but once they pass the initial phase of growth, they see economically the public cloud is no longer the best value for them,” said Reza Malekzadeh, vice president of marketing for Nimbula.
Nimbula is in the hopes that businesses will use its professional services to build their private clouds because it can help them do so more quickly, Malekzadeh said. Nimbula’s software is mature and the company’s engineers are already skilled at deploying it, he said.
Nimbula’s engineers have the skills to build a cloud infrastructure — skills often lacking in businesses. “Building the type of compute cloud Amazon has is not a traditional IT skill,” he said.
