San Francisco, Calif., December 14, 2017 OrionVM, an award-winning next-gen Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) provider, announced today the continued growth of the OrionVM Wholesale Cloud Platform with the addition of technology partner SUSE, the world’s first provider of an Enterprise Linux Distribution.

This collaboration opens new business opportunities for the channel partner community, especially for newly signed national distribution partners who demand enterprise support as a component of their cloud offerings. The partnership between OrionVM and SUSE enables companies to easily leverage an out-of-the-box cloud offering with enterprise support at a sustainable cost, giving service providers a competitive advantage and allowing them to focus on their core competencies. SUSE provides reliable, interoperable Linux, cloud infrastructure and storage solutions that give companies greater control and flexibility of their environment.Background

OrionVM has long been a proponent of open source technology, which is evident in their proprietary infrastructure platform that utilizes the Xen Project Hypervisor and Linux operating system. OrionVM’s unique hyper-converged stack and self-service web portals
