IBM has announced that Nubity Inc. has grown from a startup in Mexico City to a global provider of cloud services by partnering with IBM as part of the SoftLayer Catalyst program. The Catalyst program, which is currently being integrated into the IBM Cloud Global Entrepreneur Program, helps startups like Nubity Inc. by providing access to open, secure, scalable cloud infrastructure, executive mentorship and a robust ecosystem of partners and clients.
Nubity provides an on-demand consumption service that helps its clients integrate and monitor public and private cloud deployments – as well as deployments from disparate vendors — through a software-as-a-service (SaaS) model based on cloud infrastructure from SoftLayer, an IBM company. With this tool, customers can easy consolidate a view of their complete IT environments with a unique and strategic dashboard. The system provides alerts for preventive and corrective actions and on-time delegation of server management to help customers maintain confidence as they migrate to cloud.
"We have found a technological partner in IBM with which we count on every time we start a new project or a daring idea," said Dario Pena, CEO and co-founder of Nubity Inc.
Nubity expects 100% year-over-year growth through 2015, focusing on clients in Mexico, Colombia, andthe United States. With operation headquarters in Mexico and Argentina, and with service deployment coverage throughout every country in Latin America, Nubity has grown more than 600% since the end of 2012 and serves clients for more than 10 countries in Latin America, Europe and the US, in e-commerce, media, advertising and marketing industries.
"Nubity's story is a testament to the value that IBM and SoftLayer can bring to startups. Through a comprehensive mix of consulting, a robust ecosystem and scalable global cloud infrastructure, Nubity is helping its clients gain control over their IT environments with an innovative, secure platform," said Rita Radi, catalyst community development manager for LATAM, SoftLayer.
Having grown through the SoftLayer Catalyst program, Nubity is now a part of IBM and SoftLayer's partner programs, giving it the opportunity to take advantage of the consulting, promotional initiatives, entrepreneur forums and IBM's cloud ecosystem development from each program to drive growth. Also, Nubity participated as a finalist within SmartCamp Mexico 2014 edition, IBM's global entrepreneurs program. Nubity is now part of a select group of startups in Mexico supported by 500Startups, an early stage investment fund.
Through IBM, Nubity gained access to new markets through IBM Cloud marketplace — a single online destination that brings IBM's capabilities-as-a-service and those of partners and third party vendors with the security and resiliency enterprises expect. SoftLayer is the only IaaS provider with a single private network connecting all data centers and points of presence. This has enabled Nubity to scale out its cloud infrastructure while taking advantage of SoftLayer's unlimited private network traffic between all of its facilities to lower its bandwidth costs.
"Nubity is one of those fundamental companies for any business seeking to scale their operations efficiently," said Juan Lopez Salaberry, 500Startups partner. "Today we see how companies are looking to provide the best customer experience through new models based on the best technologies. Nubity is able to help its clients find that balance."
