OrionVM Wholesale Cloud Platform Named As Finalist in the 2014 American Business Awards

OrionVM recognized in the Best New Cloud Infrastructure category at the 12th Annual Stevie® Awards to be presented on September 12 in San Francisco, CA.

OrionVM® (https://www.orionvm.com), a leading provider of wholesale Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and next-gen cloud technology, was named as a Finalist today in the New Product or Service of the Year category for Software – Cloud Infrastructure in The 2014 American Business Awards, and will ultimately be a Gold, Silver, or Bronze Stevie® Award winner in the program.

The American Business Awards are the nation’s premier business awards program. All organizations operating in the U.S.A. are eligible to submit nominations – public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small.

The American Business Awards will be presented at two awards events: the ABA’s traditional banquet on Friday, June 13 in Chicago and the new product & technology awards event on Friday, September 12 in San Francisco.

More than 3,300 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories, including Most Innovative Company of the Year, Management Team of the Year, Best New Product or Service of the Year, Corporate Social Responsibility Program of the Year, and Executive of the Year, among others. OrionVM is nominated in the New Product or Service of the Year category for Software – Cloud Infrastructure.

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 launched key technology partnerships with Cumulus Networks and Mellanox. OrionVM is Australia’s largest wholesale cloud IaaS provider and recently announced their US expansion in early 2014 with a new headquarters office in San Francisco, CA.

“We are honored to be chosen as a finalist among so many leading companies nominated for this year’s American Business Awards,” said OrionVM Co-Founder and CEO Sheng Yeo. “This recognition validates the impact of disruptive technologies like OrionVM’s cloud offering that are helping companies to remain competitive, increase efficiency, and generate new business.”

Finalists were chosen by more than 150 business professionals nationwide during preliminary judging in April and May. More than 150 members of several specialized judging committees will determine Stevie Award placements from among the Finalists during final judging, to take place May 13-22.

“The final judges have a difficult task ahead of them, to rank the Finalists, because there are so many great nominations this year,” said Stevie Awards president and founder Michael Gallagher.

Voting will open in early July for the People’s Choice Stevie Awards for Favorite New Products, a component of The American Business Awards that invites the general public to vote for their favorite new products of the year in a number of categories, including OrionVM’s category for Software – Cloud Infrastructure.
