Singapore (PRWEB) September 30, 2011
Nubefy, a Cloud Services Management company, today announced that it has joined three of the main cloud computing and virtualization alliances: Open Virtualization Alliance (OVA), OpenStack™ and Cloud Standards Customer Council.
“As we develop the Nubefy platform to provide full ownership, portability and automation of business critical applications across multiple and diverse cloud providers, it is crucial for us to be integral members of the key alliances that will help define the cloud computing standards of tomorrow,” says Eric Meyer, CEO of Nubefy. Speaking of the company’s involvement in these organizations, Eric further adds “As our offering spans across the cloud computing industry, we hope that our work in collaboration with other members of these alliances, will allow us to provide guidance to introducing management standards to address the complexity of managing multi-vendor virtualized environments.”
Alliances are strategic in nature and Nubefy has joined OVA, OpenStack and CSCC with specific reasons in mind. Oversimplified at first, the reality is cloud computing brings new levels of complexity for companies to consider: data sovereignty, control, reliability, portability, availability, scalability and many more. Each of these alliances are working to help address the different needs of a fast and evolving industry. Nubefy aims to contribute and influence the standards and specifications each are developing. Incorporating these standards in the Nubefy cloud services management platform will further make them available to companies adopting cloud computing.
Partnering with the OVA highlights the commitment of Nubefy to supporting Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM). KVM offers companies a real open virtualization alternative to proprietary solutions with its high performance, security and scalability.
“We are very pleased to welcome Nubefy into the Open Virtualization Alliance (OVA),” said Scott Crenshaw, vice president and general manager, Cloud Business Unit at Red Hat and a founding member of the Open Virtualization Alliance. “The support for the Open Virtualization Alliance from industry leaders and innovators shows the widespread interest in KVM as an open virtualization alternative. KVM delivers leading performance, scalability and security, making it a compelling alternative to proprietary virtualization technologies.”
Including the OpenStack APIs in the Nubefy platform will aim to deliver solutions for all types of clouds by being simple to implement, highly scalable, and feature rich. The technology consists of a series of interrelated APIs delivering various components for a cloud operating system.
Participation in the Cloud Standards Customer Council, an end user advocacy group, will allow Nubefy to ensure that the development of its cloud computing platform is done with a core set of client-driven requirements. This will help ensure Nubefy cloud users have the same freedom of choice, flexibility, and openness they have with traditional IT environments.
The cloud services management platform Nubefy is developing will allow companies to fully manage multiple cloud services. The active participation of the company in these alliances will result in standards and specifications advancements to be included in its platform. Christopher Bousigues, VP of Product and Marketing concludes “Joining these alliances has been a very thought out and deliberate process. Our collaboration with OVA, OpenStack and CSCC will help Nubefy build a ubiquitous platform to help lower the barriers for widespread adoption of cloud computing and in turn create much needed standards for the ecosystem.”
Open Virtualization Alliance is a consortium committed to fostering the adoption of open virtualization technologies including Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM). HP, IBM, Intel and Red Hat are governing members of the new consortium.
