Home Vendors Browse Cloud Services 'Russia's Google' picks Nimbula Director

Yandex, the leading search engine in Russia and the world's fifth largest search engine, is using Nimbula Director as part of its private cloud infrastructure.

Yandex operates a private infrastructure-as-a-service cloud, and using Nimbula Director - software for building public, private or hybrid clouds - provided the company with several advantages.

They include allowing QA engineers to parallelise testing procedures, providing developers with self-service access to resources, and allowing the secure sharing of objects between different teams.

"Quality assurance is a big part of our improvements, that's why we need a reliable, flexible and easy to maintain solution to support our development process," said Vlad Seliverstov, chief of advertising services operation at Yandex.

"We have an in-house private cloud system and we have tried a few open source and proprietary solutions to improve our Infrastructure-as-a-Service environment.

"Nimbula Director meets all our requirements and lets us dramatically cut the time for testing and deployment."

Nimbula was founded by the team that developed Amazon EC2.
