The American Business Awards will be presented at two awards events: the ABA’s traditional banquet on Monday, June 22 in Chicago and the new product & technology awards event on Friday, September 11 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 Startup of the Year, Executive of the Year, Best New Product or Service of the Year, Marketing Campaign of the Year, among others. OrionVM is nominated in the Most Innovative Tech Company of the Year – Up to 100 Employees in the category for Computer Services & Computer Software.

OrionVM’s hyperconverged suite allows clients to resell IaaS (compute, storage, networking) below AWS rates while still generating significant profit. OrionVM boasts a 50%+ reduction in datacenter footprint (power/hardware) as seen in traditional cloud technology.

“We are experiencing huge demand for our game-changing cloud architecture from a variety of channel partners that are seeking OrionVM’s unique combination of pricing, performance, and features they simply cannot find with any other vendor,” said OrionVM Co-Founder and CEO Sheng Yeo. “This recognition among so many innovative companies validates the impact of disruptive technologies like OrionVM that truly help business gain a competitive advantage by giving them the ability to quickly and easily launch world-class cloud services.”
