Nebula Appoints Web Pioneer Jon Mittelhauser Vice President of Engineering

PALO ALTO, Calif.--()--Nebula, the cloud systems company that will enable all enterprises to easily, securely and inexpensively deploy large scale private cloud computing infrastructures, today announced that Jon Mittelhauser has joined the company’s executive team as Vice President of Engineering.

Mittelhauser is considered one of the founding fathers of the World Wide Web. He was co-author of the first widely used Web browser, NCSA Mosaic, and was a founding engineer of Netscape Communications Corporation. He was integral to building the products that made the Web a powerful business tool. As Netscape Navigator's first product manager, Mittelhauser led the effort to make the browser a platform by integrating and creating technologies such as browser plug-ins, Java and JavaScript that today are still core to the power of the Web within the enterprise.

A veteran of multiple successful start-ups, Mittelhauser has a proven track record of building highly regarded and nimble engineering organizations from the ground up and helping to architect world-changing technologies.

“Jon’s legacy as one of the founding fathers of the Web will continue here at Nebula, where he will contribute to building the computing platform that will power the Web,” said Chris C. Kemp, CEO of Nebula and co-founder of OpenStack. “Jon’s experience building world-class engineering teams, combined with his breadth of experience across software, hardware and operations, makes him a perfect fit for Nebula as we ready our product for general availability.”

Most recently, Mittelhauser ran the software organization at OnLive, Inc. and had overall management responsibility for the successful launch of their service in 2010. He helped grow OnLive’s engineering organization from 20 engineers to nearly 200, and put in place the teams, processes and infrastructure necessary to launch the service to millions of users across multiple data centers and thousands of servers.

“I’m looking forward to helping to bring cloud technologies to the enterprise,” said Mittelhauser. “I firmly believe that Nebula will transform enterprise computing as much as the Web has.”

Nebula co-founder Devin Carlen will now serve as Chief Technology Officer.

“I am excited to have Jon join our team. His experience in scaling and managing teams will be extremely helpful as we continue to rapidly expand our engineering organization,” said Carlen.
