Nebula Delivers Multi-Site Cassandra Workloads Across Private and Public Clouds

Nebula®, the enterprise private cloud company, today announced that Cloudwick Labs, an independent test lab for cloud computing, has confirmed that Nebula delivers Cassandra workloads to span multiple data centers and validates multi-site hybrid cloud interoperability with Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Rackspace.

Apache Cassandra, the open source NoSQL database technology, provides multi-site distributed computing of big data across multiple data centers. Tests were done with DataStax DSE – the commercial provider of Cassandra.

Cloudwick Labs certified DataStax’s Cassandra NoSQL operation on the Nebula One in private cloud and hybrid cloud deployments with AWS and Rackspace. To replicate enterprise workloads, Cloudwick also used Gazzang for data encryption and Datameer for analytics.

“Cloudwick Labs found Nebula to be an excellent private cloud solution for running Cassandra workloads in a hybrid cloud environment with AWS or Rackspace,” said Maninder Chhabra, CEO at Cloudwick. “Nebula makes it possible to bring elastic cloud services behind the firewall and achieve distributed NoSQL computing across private and public clouds.”

“Public cloud repatriation is being driven by cost, control and compliance,” said Gordon Stitt, CEO at Nebula. “It’s important that on-premise private clouds interoperate seamlessly with public cloud environments and deliver turnkey operations that achieve faster time-to-service over traditional bare metal infrastructures and equivalent time-to-service provided by public clouds.”

Nebula will be co-located within the Cloudwick booth (#614) at the O’Reilly Strata Conference in Santa Clara from February 11-13th. Stop by the booth to see live demos of Nebula’s private and hybrid cloud solution for the Enterprise.
