Nimboxx: New Hyper-Converged Appliance Maker
CEO: Rocky Bullock
Hyper-converged infrastructure developer Nimboxx in June exited stealth mode with $12 million in new funding and the release of its first appliance combining storage, server, networking and virtualization technology.
The Nimboxx AU-110 hyper-converged infrastructure appliance features mesh-based scale-out, dynamic resource orchestration and self-balancing workloads. The solution also provides dynamic adaptation to cache and storage changes based on multidimensional workload analyses.
Deployments can start with a single node and scale to hundreds. The Nimboxx Mesh Operating System (MeshOS) installs on bare metal and allows for direct control over all hardware resources. MeshOS also offers a RESTful API for integration with third-party applications.
