Nimbula and UShareSoft Simplify App Delivery to the Cloud

By Jessica Binns, Contributing Editor — June 12, 2012

Nimbula, a cloud operating system company, and UShareSoft, provider of a cloud software factory and app store platform, are partnering to simplify enterprise application delivery to private and hybrid clouds. The companies are achieving this goal by integrating UShareSoft's UForge with Nimbula Director. The partnership helps joint customers improve business agility by providing automation and self-service capabilities across not only compute, network and storage resources, but also software and applications.

UForge enables enterprises to automate the creation and maintenance of custom application stacks as cloud server templates ready for provisioning to a Nimbula Director-based cloud. Customers can build and maintain a single code base for their server templates, then simply generate the required format at the push of a button to deploy to their cloud. This helps enterprises manage consistency of their application stacks across hybrid clouds, easily extending to public clouds if required.

Additionally, UForge allows enterprise customers to build a managed IT app store for their Nimbula Director private or hybrid cloud, offering users self-service, on-demand access to certified, "ready-to-run" application stacks and ensuring software governance for their cloud.
