Information technologies company NIMBOXX announced a partnership with Texas Tech University on Tuesday, August 5.

NIMBOXX has joined the Texas Tech University Cloud and Autonomic Computing Center as an industry advisory board member. They are now one of five organizations that select research topics and priorities for the Center.

Tech’s Cloud and Autonomic Computing Center is one of five research centers around the country supported by the National Science Foundation Industry/University Cooperative Research Centers Program. They specialize in cloud based data management solutions.

NIMBOXX is an information technologies company that specializes in a relatively more simplistic system designed to act like a hyper-scale date center model that is used by the largest cloud based vendors such as Google and Amazon.

“Though cloud computing is clearly experiencing growth, the lack of mature cloud standards is a critical industry inhibitor right now,” said Rocky Bullock, CEO of NIMBOXX, Inc. “Having more pervasive standards would allows developers, vendors and users to focus on higher level capabilities and less on reinventing common features. We’re proud to support the work of the CAC@TTU to develop and promote trusted and reliable cloud offerings that leverage our own deep experience in cloud, virtualization and systems management technologies.”
