Nimbula Raises $15 Million for Cloud OS

Nimbula, a start-up based in Menlo Park, California, raised $15 million in second round venture funding for its Cloud Operating System.

Nimbula, which emerged from stealth mode in June 2010, was founded by former Amazon executives Chris Pinkham and Willem van Biljon, who led the development of the Amazon EC2 public cloud service. The company is focused on blending EC2-like scale, agility and efficiency with private infrastructure customization and control.

The new funding was led by Accel Partners. Current investor Sequoia Capital, which led Nimbula's first round of venture financing, also participated in this round.
