Oracle Corporation has acquired Nimbula, a cloud operating system startup company founded by former Amazon Web Services engineers Chris Pinkham and Willem van Biljon. Below is a statement that Oracle made about the deal:
On March 13, 2013, Oracle announced it has agreed to acquire Nimbula, a provider of private cloud infrastructure management software. Nimbula?s technology helps companies manage infrastructure resources to deliver service, quality and availability, as well as workloads in private and hybrid cloud environments. Nimbula?s product is complementary to Oracle, and is expected to be integrated with Oracle?s cloud offerings. The transaction is expected to close in the first half of 2013.
Nimbula’s cloud computing software enables enterprises and service providers to build scalable and reliable private or public hybrid clouds. Nimbula was founded by the same team that built EC2.
