On March 13, 2013, Oracle announced plans to acquire Nimbula, a provider of private cloud infrastructure management software. Nimbula's technology helps companies manage infrastructure resources to deliver service, quality, and availability, as well as workloads in private and hybrid cloud environments. Nimbula's product is complementary to Oracle and is expected to be integrated with Oracle's cloud offerings. "Nimbula ... signals Oracle's continuing desire to reach for the cloud," noted CMS Wire. "Nimbula ... will add to Oracle's cloud-credibility," said David Linthicum on the GigaOM Pro Blog.
