(The Hosting News) – NephoScale, creator of the NephOS next generation cloud infrastructure services platform, that includes CloudScript and Elastic Networking, is helping start-ups design and automate their cloud infrastructure environments allowing them to focus more on developing and scaling their applications. The entrepreneurs involved in the WebFWD accelerator program will benefit greatly from having access to NephoScale’s systems engineers and developers for the 12-month duration of the NephoScale Kick Start program.
“We at Mozilla WebFWD are committed to partnering with vendors and service providers that provide significant benefit to our companies. NephoScale was interesting for us given its next-generation cloud infrastructure platform, high touch on boarding, excellent technical support, and deep understanding of application delivery in the cloud,” said Diane Bisgeier, Program Manager for WebFWD.
“Because the NephoScale cloud platform was built for developers by developers, serving the needs of companies developing open source software, such as those accepted to the WebFWD program, makes for a great business relationship,” said Telemachus Luu, Co-founder and CTO of NephoScale. “With our developer-centric NephOS cloud infrastructure services platform, we help software developers develop features faster and deliver applications more reliably”.
“We are very supportive of and involved with the important work that WebFWD is doing in the open source startup community to accelerate the future of the Web for the public good,” Bruce Templeton, Co-founder and CEO of NephoScale said. “The WebFWD startup community is growing fast, and we are delighted to be supporters of this thriving group.”
