[VIDEO] What's Inside Nebula Cosmos' OpenStack Cloud Controller?

The Nebula system has been described as a 'cloud in a box' solution by some, though the reality is that the core technology is actually a cloud controller for servers. Kemp explained that users can buy their servers from whatever vendor they choose, as Nebula is not reselling servers.

The Nebula Cloud controller is an x86-based device that sits on top of the server architecture. The switching fabric is provided by way of a partnership with networking vendor Arista Networks. The controller has up to 50 x 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports and has all the compute and storage required to cloud-enable a rack of servers.

"It has everything you need to turn a rack of servers into a cloud," Nebula CEO Chris Kemp said.
