Nebula and LSI team up for OpenStack cloud storage

The open source cloud platform Nebula and storage and networking company LSI Corporation are teaming up to create an advanced storage solution based on OpenStack.

Their idea is to simplify the deployment of scalable storage with solutions based on OpenStack, in the hope it will bring new advancements to the OpenStack table around inexpensive enterprise data sharing and storing.

The solutions will leverage Nebula’s One solution for cloud know-how and LSI’s experience in data protection and storage reliability, Nebula co-founder and CTO Devin Carlen said.

"Nebula has set out to democratize large-scale computing by creating a private cloud system which allows businesses to easily build a private computing cloud from industry standard servers," Carlen said.

He said the end result will be storage that can be deployed in private clouds in companies of all sizes.

LSI SVP and CTO Greg Huff said the solutions will help deal with the massive data deluge being seen in the industry today, and that they could help drive new open standards and certification around storage.

"Private clouds require a high degree of orchestration, and we are working together to enable further advances in highly scalable and inexpensive direct-attached storage for on-premise cloud computing infrastructure provided by the Nebula One system," Huff said.

Nebula’s co-founder Chris Kemp originally helped develop the Nebula cloud for NASA, before the project became managed by the OpenStack foundation.

To date, more than 150 companies, including Rackspace, AMD, Intel, Red Hat and HP have joined OpenStack, which is bringing the community together for a number of projects crossing a range of areas, from networking to management in the data center.
