OrionVM Enterprise Selects Mellanox InfiniBand for their Private and Public Clouds
SUNNYVALE, Calif. & YOKNEAM, Israel --(Business Wire)--
Mellanox (News - Alert)® 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."
Mellanox Technologies is a leading supplier of end-to-end InfiniBand and
Ethernet interconnect solutions and services for servers and storage.
