MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nebula, the enterprise private cloud company, today announced that it has been recognized by CNBC as a top cloud disruptor and named on its 2014 Disruptor50 list. The annual list recognizes private companies that are shaking up the landscape and threatening the status quo across industries.
For the list, CNBC looked at hundreds of companies nominated by venture capitalists, industry analysts, and beat reporters, and has created the ultimate list of 50 innovators disrupting the marketplace and poised for hyper-growth. The list is a ranking based on a proprietary blend of quantitative and qualitative inputs.
“Nebula is honored to have been selected for CNBC’s Disruptor50 list,” said Gordon Stitt, CEO of Nebula. “Disruption occurs on two levels. The first comes from what the users of Nebula’s private cloud will do in their businesses – whether that is genomic research, big data analysis, financial risk analysis, visualization through media, or in new areas of research and creative thinking. As more users adopt this new technology, the business model of providers of proprietary legacy technologies will be disrupted.”
Nebula is dedicated to enabling all enterprises to easily, securely, and inexpensively deploy large private cloud computing infrastructures. Nebula makes the Nebula One, the world’s first cloud computer, enabling any business to easily build a scale-out private computing cloud from racks of industry-standard servers.
