About Nimbella.

We're building a beautiful cloud so your experience is delightful, one that allows you to focus on what you do best: explore idea, create value, and deliver applications that you are proud of. We are excited to see what you will build today, and we want to hear from you: what worked, what didn't, what we can do better — after all, we are not done and there is more to come. Reach us on Slack or on GitHub. Your Nimbella cloud account gives you all of the following features and benefits:

  • A dedicated and secure domain name for your cloud applications. If you need more, let us know.
  • Static front-end assets are automatically deployed to and served from a global CDN.
  • Back-ends are run on demand, near-instantly. No servers for you to be bothered with, ever.
  • Upload files to a secured data bucket, grant limited access as needed.
  • Record application state in a key-value store, with data accessible to all your back-end logic at extremely low latency.
  • Build workflows and orchestrate long running tasks.
