San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) February 05, 2015
OrionVM® (http://www.orionvm.com), a leading provider of wholesale Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and next-generation cloud technology, today announced it has earned recognition on The Channel Company’s CRN 100 Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors of 2015, and specifically as one of the top 20 Coolest Cloud Infrastructure Vendors Of The 2015 Cloud 100 (http://bit.ly/1AwBY3X). This annual list recognizes some of the most innovative cloud companies supporting the IT channel today.
The 100 Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors honor is presented to companies based on their approach to creating innovative products, services or partner programs that have helped channel partners transform into true solution providers, ultimately helping customers take advantage of the ease of use, flexibility, scalability and savings that cloud computing offers. OrionVM’s Wholesale Cloud Platform is recognized for its ground-breaking cloud architecture that has opened up an entirely new wholesale business model for the channel, one that not only performs better for their customers - it also offers unbeatable margins for partners.
This year’s 100 Coolest Cloud Computing honorees are identified across five major categories including platforms, infrastructure, storage, security and software. This list is an effort to help solution providers navigate through the ambiguity of the cloud market to identify the vendors, products and services that can help elevate their cloud services offerings. Companies were chosen based on data and information gathered from solution provider nominations along with input from the CRN editorial team.
OrionVM’s breakthrough approach to engineering cloud architecture dramatically reduces, by 50 percent or more, the overall COGS and datacenter footprint (power/hardware) needed to deploy premium cloud IT. The OrionVM Wholesale Cloud Platform enables service providers to brand and deploy their own enterprise-grade cloud in minutes, with no Capex, and at market-leading price to performance ratios with high margins for channel partners.
“Widespread demand for cloud computing solutions is increasing across businesses of all shapes and sizes. As organizations become more willing to adopt cloud technology and services, experienced solution providers are in greater demand," said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. “The 100 Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors list enables solution providers to engage with companies who are poised to help them capitalize on these opportunities.”
“We are honored to be recognized as one of the top cloud vendors in such a competitive industry,” said Sheng Yeo, Co-Founder and CEO of OrionVM. “Finding the right cloud vendor to support a channel partner’s business objectives is a strategic choice. Many service providers currently face the dilemma of choosing between the cost and complexity of building their own solutions versus the thin margins and limited features of using a public IaaS retailer like AWS. OrionVM now offers an exciting third option that has all the benefits of the previous two options, but remarkably, minus any of their drawbacks.”
