EPAM Systems, a software engineering and IT consultancy, said it has implemented Nimbula Director cloud operating system to deliver its cloud-based services to worldwide customers.

EPAM Systems, with more than 7,300 IT professionals, said it selected Nimbula Director to create a geographically distributed community cloud to help it deliver services and project and infrastructure management.

EPAM said it tapped Nimbula Director as its cloud provider because it was easier to deploy, less costly and easier to manage.

The company said it will be able to take advantage of Nimbula features such as secure and scalable computing and storage capacity; high-performance and resiliency; elasticity and on-demand availability; federation with other clouds; and integration with EPAM's management suite.
