Nimbula – things that come to mind

I just learned through Twitter that some ex Amazon guys announced their new company, Nimbula.

Quite an interesting company with a few things to think about:

(some answers might already be given by others but I still have to start my actual research)

The fact that AWS loses some of their key people, does that indicate there was disagreement? I always thought they should have done more for private clouds.

Amazon and EC2-like is used a lot on the website – does Amazon still have a stake in this?

It does kind of explain Martin Buhr’s relative silence on Twitter the past few months compared to the year before …

VMware is an investor – Diane Green is a board member: is this how VMware innovates? Is VMware’s cloud portfolio not as complete is I thought it was? Isn’t this partly competitive with VMware? Why no further integration with VMware?

What’s the TAM?

Any ex-Sun guys involved?

Anyway, looks like we finally have an interesting Cloud startup to follow …
