OrionVM & TidalScale Unveil Unprecedented Performance for Big Data and Analytics via Cloud-Enabled Large DRAM Tiers

Unique technology partnership provides on-demand instances far larger than those available from ordinary cloud vendors

2017 Open Compute Summit, Santa Clara and San Francisco, Calif., March 7th, 2017 TidalScale, the leading provider of Software-Defined Servers, and OrionVM, an award-winning next-gen Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) provider, today announced a partnership to deliver hosted TidalScale Software-Defined Servers via the OrionVM Wholesale Cloud Platform.

This partnership will give organizations struggling with Big Data, analytics and memory-intensive computing challenges on-demand access to a suite of TidalScale Software-Defined Servers ranging in capacity from 1.3TB to 13TB of DRAM and up to 400 cores. The large-scale Software-Defined Servers are assembled from standard physical server hardware running on the OrionVM Cloud Platform. These instances are far larger than any available from ordinary cloud vendors, yet they are available at lower cost per gigabyte of memory.

TidalScale’s HyperKernel™ software empowers OrionVM to easily aggregate processors, memory and storage into very large virtual servers. These Software-Defined Servers can flexibly scale to match the requirements of essentially any application, with no changes required to application software or operating systems.

Working closely with OrionVM, TidalScale is now able to provide an on-demand model for their Software-Defined Servers. This partnership allows for the easy deployment of traditional cloud infrastructure alongside the high memory TidalScale instances, all tightly interconnected by a high speed, low latency network.

“Through this partnership with TidalScale, we are now able to deliver very large memory virtual machines on demand by leveraging our Metal-as-a-Service products bundled with the TidalScale HyperKernel,” said Sheng Yeo, CEO, OrionVM. “The ability for OrionVM to use standard servers and assemble them into a Software-Defined Server of any size allows our customers to easily scale their application past the boundaries of a single physical machine – and well beyond the limits of servers available from AWS. The TidalScale HyperKernel on OrionVM’s Wholesale Cloud Platform makes it easy to run memory-intensive applications like data mining, machine learning and simulation in the cloud.”

“TidalScale’s ability to pool physical servers into a single virtual server is unique in the industry and provides breakthrough performance while requiring zero modifications to applications,” said Gary Smerdon, CEO, TidalScale. “Making the TidalScale service available via OrionVM’s innovative cloud technology will significantly reduce friction and complexity for a wide range of clients by eliminating the need to purchase their own hardware and manage a datacenter. This is by far the most cost-competitive solution available for running memory- or core-intensive applications natively on systems that well outclass ordinary servers.”

OrionVM and BluLogix Strengthen Channel Offering with Unique Technology Partnership

IaaS and PaaS platform innovators together enable clients to easily brand, deploy, and bill for their own suite of enterprise cloud solutions

San Francisco, CA and Channel Partners Conference (Las Vegas, NV)—March 16, 2016—OrionVM, an award-winning white-label wholesale Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) provider, and BluLogix, a leading cloud services marketplace provider, today announced a technology partnership for the channel partner community at Channel Partners Conference & Expo 2016, taking place March 16-18 in Las Vegas, NV. The one-of-a-kind union enables clients to quickly brand and launch high-performing public, private, and hybrid cloud solutions with the ability to easily package and bill those products.

This unique and symbiotic relationship represents the best of both worlds for users. Using these platforms, resellers can capitalize on OrionVM’s disruptive wholesale business model and next-gen hyperconverged architecture to resell cloud capacity (compute, storage and networking) significantly below AWS rates – all for no upfront cost and either pay-as-you-go or an annual contract. In addition, they can rely on BluLogix’s award-winning Platform as a Service (PaaS) solution for accurate service measuring, tracking, pricing and billing. The combination enables resellers to effectively maintain backend billing processes such as order to activation, invoicing and time to market—improving revenue assurance, cost reconciliation, predictive revenue and overall cash flow.

“BluLogix is proud to partner with OrionVM, a trusted and reputable wholesale IaaS provider,” said Tim Cook, CEO at BluLogix. “This partnership represents massive opportunity and profitability for the channel. Together, we look forward to transforming operations for resellers, enabling them to see higher profits and better compete in today’s dynamic market.”

“Solution providers are frustrated with the cost and operational barriers to building their own cloud,” said Sheng Yeo, OrionVM Co-Founder and CEO. “We understand those challenges and are excited about the business outcomes and market opportunity collaborating with BluLogix creates for solution providers. Our integrated services do the heavy lifting around the complicated task of managing and billing a scalable suite of premium cloud services. Now partners can focus on core competencies and value adds with the confidence they can deliver the competitive pricing and the enterprise-class performance their end-users demand.”

One company already taking advantage of the combined approach is CloudCo Partner, Inc., a leading U.S. based 3CX hosting partner and channel provider that empowers its partners to easily and profitably resell a variety of industry-best cloud services through a proprietary consolidated services portal. CloudCo provides its partners with dedicated customer service, an innovative managed services portal, higher commission rates than industry standards and a variety of other benefits all designed to eliminate the hassle and headache of reselling cloud services so a partner can focus on sales rather than support and troubleshooting.

“We have searched tirelessly and no other cloud vendor had the combination of features, support and a business model that fit our unique requirements – right out of the box. OrionVM and BluLogix provide us a complete solution that gives us the flexibility, performance and margins needed to efficiently launch our products and services and pass all that value along to our ecosystem of channel partners. This is going to allow our channel partners to grow their sales rapidly by removing the roadblocks of billing and infrastructure so they can in turn put more focus on their customer and revenue development,” said Mike Evanisko, CTO, CloudCo.

OrionVM is a member of the AT&T Partner Exchange® reseller program, allowing them to also bundle their offerings with AT&T’s highly secure, reliable and scalable network solutions.

OrionVM Joins AT&T Partner Exchange

OrionVM Joins AT&T Partner Exchange

Collaboration allows OrionVM to pair its award-winning cloud suite with the power of AT&T’s best-in-class network

SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 5, 2015 – OrionVM®, a leading provider of next-generation cloud infrastructure, has joined the AT&T Partner Exchange® reseller program. This collaboration will enable OrionVM to bundle the flexibility and agility of its White Label Cloud Platform with AT&T’s highly secure, reliable and scalable network solutions. As a result, OrionVM’s business customers can enjoy greater performance, security and control in the migration and management of Information Technology (IT) to the cloud.

OrionVM Joins AT&T Partner ExchangeOrionVM’s award-winning cloud suite (virtual compute, networking, storage and orchestration) enables the delivery of high-performing, extremely resilient Public, Private and Hybrid cloud solutions at market-leading price-to-performance ratios, along with unique features such as per-second billing, multi-tiered reseller and organization management, and full white label support.

The delivery model has no upfront costs and offers users the option of either pay-as-you-go billing or an annual contract.

Cloud has shifted from an emerging technology to a critical business solution. According to a survey conducted by Coleman Parkes Research, 66% of the SMBs surveyed agreed that cloud-based services are the way forward and important for their businesses. Even more impressive is that 74% of SMBs would prefer to engage with their primary service provider for cloud solutions. The research points to a growing need and trend among SMBs to adopt cloud-based services. The research illustrates the powerful business opportunity to become a one-stop-shop for all SMB communication needs. According to the research service providers are considered a viable and even preferred source for cloud-based services, especially those that focus on what SMBs consider essential, such as bundles with cloud-based and traditional services and a unified bill.

Randall Porter“Technological advancements are changing everything for business customers, and their challenges are becoming increasingly complex. They’ve come to rely on trusted advisors like OrionVM to deliver the tailor-made solutions they need to succeed today and in the future,” said Randall Porter, vice president of business development, AT&T Partner Solutions. “We look forward to providing the network solutions OrionVM needs to help its customers connect to its cloud infrastructure and more securely and reliably virtualize their business processes.”

Australia’s Largest Wholesale Cloud Provider OrionVM Teams with On-Demand Networking Leader Megaport

Award-winning hyperconverged IaaS suite expands APAC footprint via integration of revolutionary elastic interconnect services.

 

Sydney, Australia (June 3, 2015) – OrionVM®, a leading provider of wholesale Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and next-generation cloud technology, announced today that they have joined into a partnership agreement with Megaport, a leading independent provider of interconnection services. This strategic alliance will bring unprecedented speed and flexibility to customers on the OrionVM Wholesale Cloud Platform when transferring data and linking their networks. What’s more, Megaport-connected enterprises no longer have to commit to long term tele-communications services in order to connect to OrionVM, or any other of almost 100 organisations and providers connecting to the Megaport Interconnection Platform.

“We are committed to providing secure and dedicated bandwidth on demand between enterprises and cloud providers,” said Denver Maddux, CEO of Megaport. “Partnering with OrionVM will enable their customers to gain a competitive edge in the marketplace and maximise the efficiencies gained through their cloud investment.”
The booming global proliferation of cloud IT is often hampered by the cost and complexity of deploying connectivity between key client and service provider locations. Innovative technologies such as OrionVM and Megaport, when bundled together, significantly reduce these hurdles thanks to their ability to dynamically link a wide variety of data centres and on-premise and enterprise locations. A clear path to cloud services requires instantaneous, on-demand ways of connecting the many applications, data, and compute resources that comprise today’s complex ICT solutions.

“We understand the value of on-demand peering for our customers to increase the strength of our product offering as our network expands,” said Sheng Yeo, OrionVM Co-Founder and CEO. “Seamless interconnectivity between leading data centres in the APAC region and beyond bridges the divide between businesses operating in diverse regions. Megaport empowers customers with access to multiple clouds and networks so they can connect with anyone, in any location.”

Underscoring these points, Ben Choy, CEO of leading Australian IT Consulting group, Otilas, stated,

“We already use OrionVM and Megaport services separately, but are excited to leverage the two together allowing greater connectivity between our data centre and the OrionVM platform. Having the flexibility and choice that a tighter integration enables just makes sense. We will save both precious time and money, as well as be able to do things currently not available on other platforms like moving large amounts of data between our data centre and OrionVM, making it the perfect combination for Disaster Recovery and Backup as a Service. In addition we are able to burst into the OrionVM platform for extra compute resources as needed with greater control over connectivity.”

 

OrionVM’s hyperconverged cloud architecture dramatically reduces, by 50 percent or more, the overall COGS and data centre footprint (power/hardware) needed to build premium cloud IT. The OrionVM Wholesale Cloud Platform enables service providers to brand and deploy their own enterprise-grade cloud in days, with no Capex, and at market-leading price-to-performance ratios. The addition of Megaport’s peering functionality further extends the cost-savings and network agility OrionVM can offer their clients.

OrionVM Named in CRN’s “Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors” List

OrionVM honored as one of the top 20 Cloud Infrastructure Vendors Of The CRN 2015 Cloud 100.



OrionVM®, a leading provider of wholesale Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and next-generation cloud technology, today announced it has earned recognition on The Channel Company’s CRN 100 Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors of 2015, and specifically as one of top 20 Coolest Cloud Infrastructure Vendors Of The 2015 Cloud 100 (http://bit.ly/1AwBY3X). This annual list recognizes some of the most innovative cloud companies supporting the IT channel today.

The 100 Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors honor is presented to companies based on their approach to creating innovative products, services or partner programs that have helped channel partners transform into true solution providers, ultimately helping customers take advantage of the ease of use, flexibility, scalability and savings that cloud computing offers. OrionVM’s Wholesale Cloud Platform is recognized for its ground-breaking cloud architecture that has opened up an entirely new wholesale business model for the channel, one that not only performs better for their customers – it also offers unbeatable margins for partners.



This year’s 100 Coolest Cloud Computing honorees are identified across five major categories including platforms, infrastructure, storage, security and software. This list is an effort to help solution providers navigate through the ambiguity of the cloud market to identify the vendors, products and services that can help elevate their cloud services offerings. Companies were chosen based on data and information gathered from solution provider nominations along with input from the CRN editorial team.


OrionVM’s breakthrough approach to engineering cloud architecture dramatically reduces, by 50 percent or more, the overall COGS and datacenter footprint (power/hardware) needed to deploy premium cloud IT. The OrionVM Wholesale Cloud Platform enables service providers to brand and deploy their own enterprise-grade cloud in minutes, with no Capex, and at market-leading price to performance ratios with high margins for channel partners.



“Widespread demand for cloud computing solutions is increasing across businesses of all shapes and sizes. As organizations become more willing to adopt cloud technology and services, experienced solution providers are in greater demand,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. “The 100 Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors list enables solution providers to engage with companies who are poised to help them capitalize on these opportunities.”



“We are honored to be recognized as one of the top cloud vendors in such a competitive industry,” said Sheng Yeo, Co-Founder and CEO of OrionVM. “Finding the right cloud vendor to support a channel partner’s business objectives is a strategic choice. Many service providers currently face the dilemma of choosing between the cost and complexity of building their own solutions versus the thin margins and limited features of using a public IaaS retailer like AWS. OrionVM now offers an exciting third option that has all the benefits of the previous two options, but remarkably, minus any of their drawbacks.”

Coverage of the 100 Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors will be featured in the February 2015 issue of CRN and online at http://www.CRN.com. Please visit https://www.orionvm.com for more information on OrionVM or follow OrionVM on Twitter (@orionvm) and Facebook (https://facebook.com/orionvm)
