Global Cloud Computing Awards Program Announces Winner for Best Cloud Infrastructure
San Francisco, CA – 31 January 2018 – OrionVM®, a leading provider of wholesale Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and next-gen cloud technology, is a winner in the 2017-18 Cloud Awards Program in the category for Best Cloud Infrastructure.
Now entering its eighth year, the cloud computing awards program celebrates excellence and innovation in the rapid-growth cloud computing market. The awards program accepts entries from organizations of any size, across the globe.
OrionVM Co-Founder and CEO Sheng Yeo said: “To reach the shortlist in the 2017-18 Cloud Awards program validates our teams dedication to innovation and meeting the evolving needs of today’s businesses. OrionVM is truly honored to be recognized as the ultimate winner for Best Cloud Infrastructure in the 2017-18 Cloud Awards.
“OrionVM has also recently been recognized within the newly defined category of Hyperconverged Integrated Systems (HCI-aaS). Gartner recently spoke about what lies ahead for this new segment, and recognized OrionVM as an HCI-aaS vendor. Gartner calls HCI-aaS the world’s fastest growing market for integrated IT systems, and says ‘hyperconverged systems will effectively become “mainstream” by the end of the decade, as part of a “third wave of integrated systems” that emerges in the data center.’
“OrionVM was one of the first companies to define this technological advancement for cloud computing, and the first to make it available to channel partners. Our technical achievements, combined with the OrionVM wholesale business model and synergistic partnerships with leading technology companies, make it even easier and economical for partners to gain a competitive cloud competency.”
Cloud Awards organizer Larry Johnson said: “What was a difficult task narrowing down the submissions to arrive at the final shortlist becomes a truly daunting challenge by the time we have to arrive at the list of ultimate winners. Entrants showed unique strengths and the ever-important commitment to innovation while leveraging cloud technologies – whether or not they found a place on our shortlist.
“Today’s bleeding-edge technology is tomorrow’s legacy infrastructure, services and user interface. As ever, a balance has to be struck between this innovation and driving adoption – that’s what we are increasingly seeing in this fast-paced environment.”
Over 300 organizations entered, with entries coming from across the globe, covering the Americas, Australia, Europe and the Middle East. You can view the full shortlist and winners here: https://www.cloud-awards.com/2018-shortlist.
