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.
