DigitalOcean acquires serverless platform Nimbella

Nimbella is a serverless platform, and its addition to DigitalOcean’s portfolio will help bolster the company’s Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) offerings. 

“Serverless computing is the next evolution of cloud that further removes the need for developers to manage complex infrastructure. We are excited to have Nimbella join DigitalOcean to address specific needs often requested by our customers and fills a gap in the current serverless offerings in the market,” said Yancey Spruill, CEO of DigitalOcean. “People want to access the benefits of serverless capabilities without a significant learning curve and they want functionality and pricing that is easy to understand and predictable. Nimbella provides all of this with the same simplicity and open source software standards that are core value propositions for DigitalOcean.”
