Nimbella: New Investment in Serverless Computing

We’re excited to share our latest investment in the growing serverless computing space - welcome Nimbella!
'Nimbus' (cloud) and 'Bella' (beautiful) conveying their purpose - to make your cloud beautiful.

Nimbella was founded by an experienced, rock-star team led by Anshu Agarwal, Dr. Perry Cheng, Dr. Rodric Rabbah, and Eric Swildens. You can read more about the Nimbella origin story here!

Serverless computing, while growing at a rapid pace, is still nascent and lacking the abstractions, automation, and integrations that have proven necessary to accelerate the adoption of technology in new markets. Nimbella offers a pure serverless cloud, based on open standards, that fills the technology gaps and unifies the programming experience around serverless computing to deliver a complete and integrated solution that works across clouds. The Nimbella experience is designed with the developer in mind and is architected from the ground up for building applications and workloads with any characteristics, including event-based applications, long running applications, stateful workloads, and more complex use cases that employ artificial intelligence and machine learning.

Also... they are HIRING in Boston, NYC, and Silicon Valley. If you're interested in helping shape the future of computing, check out their career page HERE.
