Until now, bitcoin mining operations have benefitted mostly tech-savvy people and sophisticated investors. With NimbusMining's Managed Bitcoin Mining Cloud the average consumer can also mine bitcoin. NimbusMining requires a minimum twelve-month contract paid in advance with no monthly fees. NimbusMining does not keep any of the bitcoins mined.

"We're pleased to be offering NimbusMining cloud contracts on our website and to have been chosen as the preferred hardware supplier for NimbusMining," remarked Jeff Ownby, Butterfly Labs VP of Marketing. "65 Nm technology contracted by NimbusMining will be supporting these mining contracts today, and as we deliver pre-ordered 28Nm products to NimbusMining in the future, customers will have access to the most advanced technology available. We believe that market trends propelling cloud based services elsewhere are also valid in the bitcoin space, and although Butterfly Labs will continue to sell bitcoin mining equipment to people who want to mine directly, we plan to be an important player in the emerging cloud market, as well."

"Butterfly's technology is robust and reliable and most importantly we have BFL's 65Nm equipment on hand already," said Greg Bachrach, co-founder and CEO of NimbusMining. "We strongly believe that bitcoin mining will move to the cloud and it is our mission in the CoinWare group, which is the parent company of NimbusMining, to make bitcoin mining more broadly available and accessible to the average consumer."

Bachrach also pointed out, "Some key differentiators of the NimbusMining service are that there are no monthly fees and we do not keep any of the bitcoins mined by our customers. Also, we have built a high availability service with both equipment redundancy and datacenter redundancy."

When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...
"When we talk about cloud without compromise what we're talking about is that when people think about 'I need the flexibility of the cloud' - it's the ability to create applications and run them in a cloud environment that's far more flexible,” explained Matthew Finnie, CTO of Interoute, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
