Nebula is a Federal cloud computing pilot under development at NASA Ames Research Center in Silicon Valley, California. The project began in 2008 under the direction of Chris C. Kemp.[1][2][3]

The Ames Internet Exchange, which hosts the Nebula Cloud, was formerly MAE-West, one of the original nodes of the Internet, and is a major peering location for Tier 1 ISPs, as well as being the home of the "E" root name servers. Nebula also connects to CENIC and Internet2, with 10GigE connections.

Nebula is an open-source project and uses a variety of open-source components, including OpenStack, Lustre and RabbitMQ.
