If 2011 proves to be the year in which cloud computing transformed from a growing techie trend into an integral component of our wired lifestyles, Sheng Yeo and Alex Sharp will have had much to do with it. The two UTS mates co-founded Orion Virtualisation Solutions (aka OrionVM) in 2010 with a straightforward goal in mind: build the fastest cloud storage platform in Australia. Today, OrionVM competes among the fastest in the world.
Yeo's startup OrionVM sells computing infrastructure as a service through the Internet -- the cloud. The result? Here's Yeo's assessment: "We have spent $30,000 to $40,000 building up a system that others spend hundreds of thousands on. Australian companies using an Australian platform don't have to deal with the 250-millisecond delay from hosting content in the United States." Hey, that's a computing eternity.
