AAPT selects OrionVM as wholesale cloud platform

First major wholesale customer for OrionVM

Telco, AAPT, has selected Aussie-based OrionVM for its locally-developed wholesale Cloud platform to complement its private Cloud strategy.

The Connect Cloud Platform will be delivered through Connect.com.au.

The partnership marks OrionVM’s first major wholesale customer and comes on the back of launching its wholesale and reseller strategy, which involves the ability to deliver Cloud services to customers without capital expenditure outlays, promises rapid market delivery and support.

It also promises high margins for wholesale customers, targeting telecommunications providers, managed service providers, SaaS/PaaS vendors, traditional hosting providers and system integrators.

The Connect.com.au brand currently includes two core pillars - Cloud and CDN.

“OrionVM has a specialised area of expertise in Cloud and applications management which sits with our networks and IP solutions,” OrionVM managing director, Sheng Yeo, said.

AAPT CEO, David Yuile, said it heavily invested in its network infrastructure as it shifts its focus on servicing demanding needs on wholesale and business markets.

OrionVM was launched in 2010, backed by co-founder of Pipe Networks, Steve Baxter. It has also attracted the foundation investment from U.S senior Microsoft researcher, C. Gordon Bell.
