SAN FRANCISCO, March 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- OrionVM®, a leading provider of wholesale infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) and next-gen cloud technology, announced today its US expansion with the launch of a new office in San Francisco's booming tech community. Alongside the company's US expansion comes the addition of market differentiating technology partners and new product features and pricing to innovate and disrupt the current cloud ecosystem.
OrionVM helps IT solution providers drive profit and deliver high-performing, enterprise-grade cloud services. Fueled by strong demand for its market-leading wholesale cloud platform, OrionVM achieved a record year in 2013 with a 20-fold increase of customers, adding enterprise clients such as Fastly, D-Link, and Vodafone, and launching key technology partnerships with Cumulus Networks™ and Mellanox.
To help support this rapid growth, serve new markets and expand partner relationships, OrionVM announced new features and pricing for its wholesale cloud platform, including:
- Pricing margins up to 80% off competitors such as Amazon
- 40-1000 times the storage performance of a standard Amazon server
- Fully redundant system for rapid fail-over of servers in the event of an outage, ensuring resiliency with multiple copies of all data
- Agile and composable Cloud 2.0 IaaS platform that supports Private, Public, and Hybrid deployments
OrionVM is able to deliver world-class cloud at a remarkably lower cost because of efficiencies enabled by using technology commonly found in supercomputers. Mellanox's Infiniband interconnect is an important piece of OrionVM's groundbreaking distributed architecture. "Mellanox is pleased to be the interconnect of choice for the OrionVM Wholesale Cloud Platform. By utilizing Mellanox's InfiniBand interconnect solutions, OrionVM offers eight times more throughput with ten times lower latency than comparable Cloud IaaS providers based on 10 Gigabit Ethernet," said Kevin Deierling, Vice President of Marketing at Mellanox Technologies. "OrionVM was visionary in being one the first to leverage InfiniBand to build cloud systems, and we will continue to work together to combine the latest advancements from Mellanox with OrionVM's innovative architecture."
Further demonstrating that technical innovation is essential for building the highest performing cloud IT is OrionVM's partnership with Cumulus Networks: "The modern data center is one where compute, storage and networking can all run cohesively and resources can be optimized," said Reza Malekzadeh, VP of Business, Cumulus Networks. "This is even more apparent as cloud environments grow and this is what OrionVM has successfully demonstrated. By deploying Cumulus® Linux®, OrionVM was able to deliver the same model proven in its Linux compute environment in its networking environment and leverage the same team for multiple workflows. This model is a true example of a modern data center."
"OrionVM is experiencing exceptionally rapid growth across all markets, especially in the US, as there is a tremendous demand for high-performing IaaS that can also pass along high profit margins for MSPs, VARs, and IT brokers," said Sheng Yeo, OrionVM CEO. "The 'secret sauce' of our technology enables us to offer next-gen cloud computing at up to 80% off the list price of public retailers like Amazon. We have engineered our compute, storage and networking components with such a high degree of efficiency that exceptional cost-savings emerge at every level of the tech stack with OrionVM."
With operations in the US and Australia, OrionVM is shaking up the world of traditional enterprise IT. OrionVM offers breakthrough technology that empowers service providers to deliver an optimum cloud competency with rapid time-to-market minus the hurdle of any capital expenditure. OrionVM already powers publicly listed telcos, government agencies, and leading SaaS organizations. The company earned the backing of tech luminary Gordon Bell, and is well-positioned to completely disrupt the market by providing enterprise-class cloud infrastructure at a fraction of the cost of its incumbent vendors.

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...

Enterprises have been using both Big Data and virtualization for years. Until recently, however, most enterprises have not combined the two. Big Data's demands for higher levels of performance, the ability to control quality-of-service (QoS), and the ability to adhere to SLAs have kept it on bare metal, apart from the modern data center cloud. With recent technology innovations, we've seen the advantages of bare metal erode to such a degree that the enhanced flexibility and reduced costs that cl...
