Web Hosting ToolboxSAN DIEGO – NASA Ames Research Center has selected a containerized data center solution from Verari Systems® and Cisco Systems, Inc.® for the first phase of its Nebula Cloud Computing Platform. Nebula is a seamless, self-service platform built from open source software that provides high capacity computing, storage, and network connectivity for NASA research. The containerized data center solution includes the Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS) as well as Silicon Mechanics servers in a FOREST Container from Verari Systems. This approach enables the rapid deployment of a fully integrated IT infrastructure, including computing, storage, networking, virtualization, and systems management.

“Nebula has been designed to automatically increase the computing power and storage available to science- and data-oriented web applications as demand rises,” explains Chris C. Kemp, Chief Information Officer of NASA Ames Research Center. “The containerized data center solution from Verari Systems and Cisco delivers the foundation for a next-generation cloud computing environment that is responsive to the needs of our developers so they can focus on mission success — without worrying about the capacity and availability of the computing infrastructure. This solution is transforming how we think about NASA’s future computing environment.”
