IBA15_Silver_VOrionVM® (http://www.orionvm.com), a leading provider of wholesale Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and next-gen cloud technology, was named the winner of a Silver Stevie® Award in the Most Innovative Company of the Year – in Asia, Australia and New Zealand category in The 12th Annual International Business Awards today.

More than 3,700 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories, including Company of the Year, Marketing Campaign of the Year, Best New Product or Service of the Year, Startup of the Year, Corporate Social Responsibility Program of the Year, and Executive of the Year, among others.  OrionVM won in the Most Innovative Company of the Year category in Asia, Australia and New Zealand.

Modeled on supercomputers, OrionVM’s proprietary cloud architecture aggregates innovation in distributed systems, converged infrastructure, open networking, and more to define a new era of simplicity and agility in the deployment of hosted, enterprise-grade cloud IT. The OrionVM Wholesale Cloud Platform allows channel partners to easily launch premium private, public, and hybrid cloud solutions with full control, from a complete white-label rebrand to billing integration and flexible account management. OrionVM’s HyperCloud boasts a 50%+ reduction in the datacenter footprint (power/hardware) compared to traditional cloud technologies, which allows clients to sell IaaS (compute, storage, networking) below AWS rates while still generating significant profit.

“We are honoured to be recognized with this award among so many talented organizations,” said Sheng Yeo, OrionVM Co-Founder and CEO. “Innovation is a core driver for our team—to meet the exploding demand for cloud with breakthrough tech and a service delivery model that offers an unmatched combination of product features, performance levels, and revenue potential. This award is further validation of the market differentiation and competitive advantage we provide our partners as well as our partners’ clients.”

Stevie Award winners were determined by the average scores of more than 200 executives worldwide who participated in the judging process from May through early August.

“The IBAs grow in stature and renown every year, and with that the number and quality of entries increases,” said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards.  “This year’s judges were treated to more than 3,700 stories of success and achievement around the world.  We thank the judges for their time and feedback, and we congratulate the Gold, Silver and Bronze Stevie winners whom we’ll celebrate in Toronto in October.”
