Nimbula, a Menlo Park, CA-based company that delivers a cloud infrastructure and services system, has secured $15m in its second round of venture capital funding.
The round was led by Accel Partners, with participation from existing investor Sequoia Capital, which led Nimbula’s first round of financing.
In conjunction with the funding, Ping Li of Accel Partners has joined the company’s board of directors.
The new capital will enable the company to continue to invest in innovation around hybrid cloud computing technologies and expand market adoption of its product offering for the management of on- and off-premises infrastructure.
Founded in June 2010 by former Amazon executives Chris Pinkham (CEO) and Willem van Biljon, who had led the development of the Amazon EC2 public cloud service, Nimbula delivers a comprehensive cloud operating system that allows customers to repurpose their existing infrastructure and build a computing cloud in the environment of their own data center.
The company has a development team in South Africa.
