Nimbis' core services are the commodity products and services that Nimbis buys in quantity from commercial computing and software service suppliers and resells as subdivided access directly as a product or indirectly through a value-added service. Nimbis’ clients will benefit from price competition and spare computing capacity generated by the proliferation of large scale HPC and cloud computing centers.

Nimbis' value-added services are unique solutions provided to specific classes of clients through independent software vendor back-ends or thin-client web portals. Each industry (and sometimes customer) needs software customization requiring both HPC and domain expertise. HPC centers and consulting firms play a major role in developing this capability. Nimbis adds value by providing the electronic commerce backend functionality for third parties that want to sell their custom computing solutions. From a user perspective, these highly specific industry solutions are accessible through tailored thin-client web portals.



Founded in 2008 by Robert Graybill and Brian Schott as the first nationwide brokerage clearinghouse for a broad spectrum of cloud-agnostic integrated cloud-based platforms and applications.
