OrionVM Honored as Silver Stevie® Award Winner in 2015 American Business Awards

Hyperconverged IaaS Cloud Pioneer Honored with Most Innovative Tech Company at ABA Award Ceremony in San Francisco

ABA15_Silver_VOrionVM® (http://www.orionvm.com), a leading provider of wholesale Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and next-gen cloud technology, was presented with a Silver Stevie® Award in the  Most Innovative Tech Company of the Year category in The 13th Annual American Business Awards last Friday night.

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.

More than 3,300 nominations were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories, including Tech Startup of the Year, Software Executive of the Year, Best New Product or Service of the Year, and App of the Year, among others.  OrionVM was nominated in the Most Innovative Tech Company of the Year category for Up to 100 Employees.

OrionVM’s proprietary cloud architecture, modeled on supercomputers, aggregates innovation in distributed systems, converged infrastructure, open networking, and more to define a new era of simplicity and agility for deploying 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.

“This award is further validation of the competitive advantage and operational agility we deliver for our partners as well as our partners’ clients in the rapidly growing cloud marketplace,” said Sheng Yeo, OrionVM Co-Founder and CEO. “OrionVM has emerged as the compelling third option for the many IT service providers trapped between the high capital investment and technical complexity of building their own cloud versus the thin profit margins and hidden scaling costs of using public IaaS retailers.
Stevie Award winners were selected by more than 200 executives nationwide who participated in the judging process.

“We are extremely impressed with the quality of the entries we received this year. The competition was intense and every organization that won should be proud,” said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards. “To those outstanding individuals and organizations that received Gold, Silver, and Bronze Stevie Awards, the judges and I are honored to celebrate your many accomplishments. You are setting a high standard for professionals nationwide.”
