OrionVM Enterprise Selects Mellanox InfiniBand for their Private and Public Clouds

Mellanox® Technologies, Ltd. (NASDAQ: MLNX) (TASE: MLNX), a leading supplier of high-performance, end-to-end interconnect solutions for data center servers and storage systems, today announced its industry and performance-leading InfiniBand solutions have been integrated in Australian cloud service provider, OrionVM, enterprise private and public clouds, who is now standardizing on InfiniBand for their enterprise deployments around the world. OrionVM’s customers range from government agencies and web services providers to financial services organizations in worldwide deployments.

OrionVM provides customers with a cloud platform to build and scale applications and websites on demand, instead of managing servers and networks. Mellanox InfiniBand enabled OrionVM to reduce the price point at which they were able to offer solutions to customers. Utilizing InfiniBand and their distributed storage system, OrionVM is able to offer customers a significantly higher performance cloud computing platform at a lower price. Best of all, the use of InfiniBand has reduced OrionVM’s cost of deployment and decreased the complexity within their data center environments.

“OrionVM is moving towards using InfiniBand in all of its cloud services offerings,” said Sheng Yeo, OrionVM Managing Director. “We’re looking to offer our customers the highest bandwidth, lowest latency solutions, to enable leading and scalable application performance.”

OrionVM has been using InfiniBand within its own data center for the past 2.5 years, conducting research around use of the interconnect for distributed storage and scalable cloud infrastructures. Due to InfiniBand’s high levels of return on investment and superior application cost/performance, OrionVM decided to use InfiniBand as the core of the company offering over 10 or 40 Gigabit Ethernet.

“OrionVM conducted elaborate testing on Mellanox InfiniBand solutions, using a variety of deployment scenarios,” said Marc Sultzbaugh, senior vice president of worldwide sales at Mellanox Technologies. “Looking at the test results, InfiniBand’s key benefits – extreme low latency, scalability, high throughput per port and price/performance –were apparent. Mellanox InfiniBand was the obvious choice for OrionVM and for all customers looking to deploy cloud computing solutions with high-performance compute and high-capacity storage.”
