OrionVM IaaS Helps Data Centers Forge New Path to the Cloud

OrionVM IaaS Helps Data Centers Forge New Path to the Cloud

New MicroPoP offering provides quick and competitive entry into the cloud market

SAN FRANCISCO and SYDNEY, Nov. 10, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- 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 Micro Point of Presence (PoP) offerings, or MicroPoPs. Data centers, ISPs and hosting providers can now deliver productized cloud solutions and resell premium cloud services to their existing client base, under their own company name and in regions previously unserved or ignored by current cloud providers.

OrionVM's MicroPoPs are a unique offering that straddles the space between bare metal and managed virtualized instances to offer the market something entirely new. A MicroPoP can be installed within a quarter rack, thereby reducing the starting footprint and risks associated with new deployments. This rapid time-to-market is especially vital during the current pandemic and the increasing demand for remote workforces that require hosted desktops, distributed applications, and remote security.

"Our new MicroPoP offering gives data centers their own branded cloud services," said OrionVM COO and VP Partnerships Daniel Pfeiffer. "Previously they could either stand by and lose clients to the public clouds, or try to buy and build their own, which entails high CapEx investments and a wide range of technical complexities. Our technology removes the onerous costs and support overhead of buying hardware and having to build and manage cloud infrastructure. We do this and also give partners a full channel cloud ecosystem, from the bottom of the stack all the way to providing a suite of productized cloud services such as Desktop as a Service (DaaS) and Backup as a Service (BaaS).Data centers can now diversify from the commodity sale of power, space and cooling, to become a true cloud player with a wholesale business model and set of networking and product advantages the incumbent cloud vendors cannot match."

Prior to OrionVM's offering data centers could launch their own cloud services through public clouds, which has proved problematic due to vendor lock-in and the poor economics of the business case associated with those limitations. The alternative was hyperconverged appliance vendors that require expensive hardware, steep upfront work and internal expertise for ongoing maintenance. They also do not offer a white-labeled, multi-tiered platform with a suite of productized cloud solutions such as Backup as a Service (BaaS) and Desktop as a Service (DaaS). OrionVM offers these services "out of the box".

Data3, who hosts multiple data centers, has partnered with OrionVM to launch their cloud offering. Data3 will be delivering next-gen cloud to regional IT providers and businesses in their area to quickly gain a competitive advantage in monetizing and delivering their own cloud solutions. 

"We are thrilled to be partnering with OrionVM and bring our solution to market in time to meet the urgent need of applications enabling the remote workforce. Next-gen cloud, regionally deployed by a trusted and longtime company like D3, will be a game changer for a lot of IT service providers looking to gain their own identity and differentiation in deploying premium cloud solutions," said David Harrelson, COO and VP of Data3 Corporation.

Partners can now leverage the entire suite of cloud infrastructure products available to them when they deploy an OrionVM MicroPoP. The starting components of a MicroPoP include IaaS building blocks (virtual compute, virtual block storage, and virtual networking). An a la carte business model lets partners pick and choose which products and services to launch with, and subsequently those that can be added later as their business scales and grows. Additional deployment options include: Object Storage Cluster; Private Cloud with layer 2 networking;  Bare Metal as a Service; GPUs as a Service.
