“The Nebula One delivers on Nebula’s mission to democratize cloud computing by bringing the simplicity, agility, and operational efficiency of the world’s largest Internet companies to all enterprises at a fraction of the cost of public cloud services,” said Chris C. Kemp, co-founder and CEO of Nebula, as Nebula today announced the general availability of Nebula One, which the company describes as "the world's first enterprise cloud computer."
The Nebula One private cloud system, Kemp said, aims "to free the organization to focus on applications instead of infrastructure." There is a very compelling YouTube video to mark the release, which you can view here.

"Market-leading enterprises have been testing early versions of Nebula’s product for the past year. In many industries, advances in infrastructure are driving the need for a new generation of computing technology that is an order of magnitude more efficient than what's available today. With the Nebula One, the ability to deploy pre-certified servers from vendors that customers already trust replaces the need for expensive, specialized computing infrastructure."
Walt Johnson, Vice President of the Intelligent Systems Lab at PARC, the R&D lab that invented the computer mouse and the graphical user interface and which has selected Nebula to power their private cloud infrastructure, said: "PARC researchers can now use and reuse the readily-available compute resources they need from the Nebula One cloud, provisioning in minutes what once took days to manually provision or months to procure."
At the core of the Nebula One cloud system, the company explains, is the Nebula Cloud Controller," a hardware appliance that turns racks of certified industry-standard servers into a scalable on-premise infrastructure-as-a-service cloud system."
Nebula One runs Cosmos, Nebula’s distributed enterprise cloud operating system, which builds on OpenStack to provide "a rich self-service user experience and compatibility with Amazon Web Services and OpenStack APIs."
The company adds:
"While a single-rack deployment is enough for many medium-sized businesses, the Nebula One system can scale to multi-rack deployments to meet the needs of large enterprises."
The Nebula One, says the company, is available for purchase today.
