    Silicon Valley tech firm Nebulon is developing a new software engineering centre in Belfast.

    Economic growth agency Invest NI has offered £97,500 to support the creation of 15 new jobs at the centre. The software engineering roles will support the delivery and development of cloud-defined storage (CDS), providing specialised cloud, security and storage expertise.

    Nebulon is currently based at the Scottish Provident Building in Belfast, with additional offices in London and Seattle, and headquarters in Silicon Valley. The company founders include the leadership team from 3PAR and cloud engineers and architects from Snap Inc. The name, Nebulon comes from a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics.
