Alex Sharp, NSW (b. 1991)
Name: Alex Sharp
Known for: Orion VM
Sheng Yeo, NSW (b. 1988)
Name: Sheng Yeo
Known for: Orion VM
Sheng Yeo and Alex Sharp have taken cloud technology to new heights. Orion VM is a revolutionary cloud infrastructure, “enabling the delivery of high-performing, highly reliable cloud solutions at market-leading price-to-performance ratios,” Sheng and Alex say.
This platform, which consists of virtual storage, compute, orchestration and virtual networking, is built for either internal consumption or resale, Sheng and Alex say.
Orion VM supports private, public and hybrid cloud deployments. The architecture of the platform makes it possible for clients to resell cloud services below Amazon Web Services rates, while still making a profit.
“Partners have full control – from a complete white-label rebrand to billing integration and flexible account management,” Sheng and Alex say.
Cloud technology comes in a very competitive market. Because of this, Sheng and Alex consider themselves innovators in a saturated field. The two agree this field speaks to the high quality of what they’ve created.
Their success includes servicing more than 450 global clients, including tier one telecommunications companies. Also, about two years ago, the company expanded into the United States.
Sheng and Alex say international growth has been one of their greatest successes, but also one of their greatest challenges.
“We have succeeded by fostering open lines of communication and leveraging various tools to keep our teams well connected and organised across time zones,” Sheng and Alex say.
Inspired by industry advances and the promise of aiding major companies in their business endeavors, the two take challenges as opportunities.
The product of Sheng and Alex’s go-getter attitudes, Orion VM has won a number of industry awards. Sheng was recently named as one of CRN’s “100 People You Don’t Know But Should” on the IT channel.
