Mark Collier, COO of the OpenStack Foundation introduced the partnership with Nimbula:

Reza Malekzadeh, VP of marketing and sales at Nimbula, said:

OpenStack has gathered strong industry momentum and we see the creation of the OpenStack Foundation as a very positive event, our customers appreciate the advanced functionality, scale and security model we provide, but have been asking us about a standardized core. We are excited to now be in a position to work with the OpenStack community to deliver a range of extended infrastructure and platform services around an industry-standard effort.
