How Nebula Is Growing a Turnkey OpenStack Cloud Business
VIDEO: The CEO of Nebula as well as the company's founder discuss how they plan on scaling the business in an increasingly competitive market.Nebula is an OpenStack cloud company that was founded by Chris Kemp, the former CTO of NASA and one of founders of OpenStack itself. In September 2013, Kemp brought Gordon Stitt, the former CEO of Extreme Networks, onboard to become the new CEO of Nebula. In a video interview with eWEEK, the two Nebula leaders discuss their plans for scaling their business in the growing OpenStack cloud market. Stitt said that Nebula's strategy has always been about connecting existing enterprise infrastructure with OpenStack. The core focus for Nebula is on enabling private clouds for enterprise deployments. Under Stitt's leadership, Nebula is targeting specific market verticals, rather than just taking a broad market approach. Government, Higher Education and Financial Services are areas where Nebula is seeing success already.
"The mantra of Nebula from the beginning, and we've now really turned the volume up on it, is that it needs to be turnkey," Stitt said.
