Another Round of Funding for Ex-Amazon EC2 Team’s Nimbula

Nimbula, the cloud operating system vendor founded by the developers of Amazon’s EC2, announced today that it has secured $15 million in its second round of venture capital funding. This round was led by Accel Partners, with participation from Sequoia Capital, which led Nimbula’s first VC round. The new funding brings the total raised for the company to over $20 million and will be used to expanding marketing and development of the company’s hybrid cloud computing technologies.

Nimbula emerged from stealth in June and aims to tackle some of the key challenges associated with enterprise cloud adoption: questions of security, interoperability, and private versus public clouds. Nimbula’s cloud operating system allows customers to repurpose their existing data center into a scalable, automated, EC2-like infrastructure that can access both on- and off-premise cloud services via an API.

While there are numerous players offering solutions for moving the enterprise data center to the cloud, investors from both Accel and Sequoia touted not just the company’s technology, but the experience and expertise of the founders Chris Pinkham and Willem van Biljon in making today’s announcement.

Preparing for a formal launch later this fall, Nimbula remains in private beta with half a dozen large international customers in the financial services, technology and healthcare industries.
