The-Cloud-Awards-winnerPNGGlobal 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.

OrionVM Shortlisted for Best Cloud Infrastructure in 2014-15 Cloud Awards

OrionVM® (https://www.orionvm.com), a leading provider of wholesale Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and next-gen cloud technology, has been shortlisted in the 2014-2015 Cloud Awards Program in the category Best Cloud Infrastructure.


With awards for excellence and innovation in cloud computing, the cloud computing awards program accepts entries from across the entire globe, including the US, Canada, Australasia and EMEA. Now in its fourth year, entries are accepted from organizations of any size and include start-ups and government bodies.


Sheng Yeo OrionVM Co-Founder and CEO said: “We are seeing increased demand for wholesale cloud as more service providers discover the game-changing performance, cost-savings, and flexibility our platform delivers. To be shortlisted for Best Cloud Infrastructure by the Cloud Awards program is an honor and further validation of the technical innovation and business value that we bring to market.”

Combining supercomputer architectures with extreme design efficiency, OrionVM dramatically reduces (by 50% or more) the overall data center footprint (power/hardware) required to produce premium cloud services.  OrionVM’s breakthrough Cloud 2.0 technology provides a complete end-to-end enterprise-grade cloud offering ‘out-of-the-box’, allowing unprecedented speed-to-market compared to traditional technologies.

Cloud Awards organizer Larry Johnson said: “The standard of entries to this year’s program has been truly staggering – so much so that even after culling hundreds of organizations from our consideration, our shortlist is still longer than ever before.

“We’ve been very impressed with how the Cloud ecosystem has evolved by the end of 2014 and these best-of-breed organizations are knocking it out of the park in terms of performance. These technologies aren’t going away: leverage them now or ignore them at your peril.

“As ever, the US organizations have dominated the submissions process, but we’re seeing more and more applicants from farther afield – Europe, the UK, Australia, Asia – we’re running the biggest and best celebration of excellence in the Cloud and the whole world wants to join the party.

“When the dust has settled on what promises to be the most diverse and dynamic field of candidates yet, nobody knows what the 2015-16 Cloud Awards program will bring next year aside from continued excellence.”

Over 300 organizations entered, with entries coming from across the globe, covering the Americas, Australia, Europe and the Middle East.

Final winners will be announced on Tuesday 27 January 2015. This will not be the end of the process, with a public vote announced on this date to decide who will win the Cloud Computing Organization of the Year Award.
