NASA-Ames Research Center
The Silicon Mechanics team recently received a Certificate of Appreciation from NASA and the Ames Research Center. The award was given as a result of our participation as a hardware supplier on the Nebula project, NASA's Cloud Computing initiative. Nebula is an efficient and highly scalable containerized Cloud Computing infrastructure that enables researchers to tap into powerful, highly scalable, and fully FISMA-compliant infrastructure more quickly and for less money than infrastructure that they could build themselves.
