Nimbula Announces Auto-­Scaling and Auto-­Discovery of Resources Capabilities for VMware Cloud Foundry That It will Demo Live at VMworld
Today Nimbula, the Cloud Operating System Company, made two announcements around VMware technology and products that further position Nimbula Director as a leading Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) layer for enterprises and service providers.

1) VMware Cloud Foundry, the industry’s first open Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), will be integrated with Nimbula Director using Nimbula’s Virtual Services framework. Nimbula will demonstrate the integration at VMworld 2011 Europe this week both onstage at the VMworld Demo Theatre on October 18 at 2:20pm and in its booth #70 during the event.

2) Nimbula Director will add support for VMware vSphere. The addition of support for VMware vSphere will enable customers to leverage Nimbula’s unique orchestration features on top of the VMware vSphere cloud infrastructure platform. This support will be made available in an upcoming version of Nimbula Director.

Integration of VMware Cloud Foundry

Nimbula Director Virtual Services is a framework that facilitates the provisioning of application, network and core services on top of Nimbula Director. Services run inside a virtual machine providing isolation, high-­‐availability and elasticity.

"Cloud Foundry is the industry's first open PaaS implementation, giving developers a choice of clouds to which to deploy their applications," said Jerry Chen, vice president, cloud application platform product management, VMware. "We're delighted Nimbula's Cloud Foundry integration is giving developers yet another option in a multi-cloud world."

“Cloud Foundry is a good example of how PaaS can help IT accelerate application delivery and therefore innovation,” said Willem van Biljon, Co-Founder and VP of Products at Nimbula. "We are committed to delivering great infrastructure support for it and helping further the transition to a developer friendly world.”

With this integration, Nimbula Director delivers:

  • Auto-scaling Cloud Foundry:
    Nimbula Director’s Virtual Services will detect when the pool of available Droplet Execution Agents (DEAs) are fully occupied, and automatically start new virtual machines to expand the pool of DEAs. Auto-scaling is also enabled for other Cloud Foundry related services like MongoDB and Redis.
  • Auto discovery of services:
    Cloud Foundry on Nimbula Director can provide fully dynamic service discovery, paving the way for auto-­‐scaling Cloud Foundry. This capability creates a simplified model for dynamic service discovery, even across multi-node configurations.
  • Strong identity and security for multi-tenancy:
    Running Cloud Foundry on Nimbula's unique IaaS platform, PaaS deployments from multiple tenants can be run in a shared cloud with complete isolation from each other. The PaaS applications and end users for one tenant will be completely isolated from each other in terms of identity, network access, and resource contention.
