Nebula One: An Operating System and Interoperability Cloud Ecosystem In Onenebula

There are nebulous clouds and then there is Nebula One. The latter is a cloud startup with two bases in Seattle, Washington and Mountain View, California. The company began operations in 2011, thus giving it a few years down the line as a preferential provider of OpenStack-based cloud infrastructure services. By going for OpenStack, as opposed to CloudStack or Rackspace, among other open-source models, this startup has ganged up with the preferential provider of National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s (NASA) private cloud. Indeed, when it comes to a definition, Nebula One just does that: providing private infrastructure at a stem of the cost, due to its interoperability across countless computers that can count as one if a client connects them.

With this in mind, here are the two major characteristics of this service:

1. Operating System Cosmos.
2. Interoperability on the Cloud Ecosystem.

Operating System Cosmos

In every node of a typical Nebula One’s infrastructure, there are three ingredients. The first one is the hardware and soft applications in place, which combine to provide a private cloud environment.  If there are several machines, then there will be a Cloud Controller, the nucleus of the system that makes multiple machines, irrespective of previous incompatibility, to function as one. The third merit is an orchestrating network, by the name of Nebula Cosmos, which is the solar system where the planets in the Controller revolve. In other words, all applications and machines form a novel operating system (OS).

Choices for this innovative OS include the following platforms:

  • OpenStack: this is one of the leading open source cloud platforms whose crème de la crème of clients includes NASA.
  • Amazon Web Services. One of the preferential customer and marketing cloud infrastructures.

This means that it is possible to evolve a cloud-based Operating System featuring both e-Commerce and technology features.

Interoperability on the Cloud Ecosystem

Another method, which doubles as a merit, of the services of the Nebula One offering is its Cloud System. One of the leading merits of this company is the fact that it brings home interoperability to the base. Not only can the client provision new systems and applications at wish, but can scale the server space at any time. The fact that the company uses high-performance standard servers means that it can handle multiple applications from diverse users. One secret to this degree of synchronization is, obviously, the open source rendering of OpenStack technology inside which Nebula One acts as a configured ‘appliance.’

Interoperability can also lie in the sense of provisioning the application at the consumer base. Indeed, the client can add any app, on demand, that can serve the needs of the clientele.

Is the System Merely For Admin?

One of the possible questions that an analyst can pose concerning Nebula One is whether it is a tool for system administrators, alone. This is because, being an Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) offering, this rendering uses technical systems to bring about its Cloud Ecosystem. Here are also Application Programming Interfaces to tap into for the technical staff of a company that wants to go the extra mile. The IT department can also configure the instinctive graphical interface to improve its Internet-based and cloud-based portfolios. However, all these technical details are not necessary at the end-user level, because the startup brings fully-loaded systems, just like in a normal IaaS platform. Thus, an administrator only configures what he or she deems necessary.

In summary, Nebula One has improved the way both large and small organizations can invest on cheap machines, in their offices, which act as appliances for the more powerful open-source systems of this provider. The pricing is on per-use basis, which reduces the expenditure of a hardware-reliant office. Thirdly, a number of machines can co-opt into a single Operating System during an office interchange. These, among others, rest the case for Nebula One, whose management has earned the support of various funding ventures including a trio consisting of Google’s three initial investors. It is surely one of the few companies that deserve true mention as one of the top North America cloud startups.
