Australian data center company DXN Limited turned to infrastructure-as-a-service provider OrionVM for a hosted cloud solution.
Called DXN Cloud, OrionVM calls the offering Australia’s first complete rack-to-cloud solution aimed at providing DXN customers with a simplified path to hybrid cloud through customizable cloud services. It is hosted in DXN’s Tier-III certified facilities in Sydney Olympic Park.
In addition to hybrid cloud, DXN Cloud also makes it easy to deploy public and private cloud solutions, and also offers managed service providers integration with a rebrandable portal and out-of-the-box cloud environment.
DXN Cloud is based on OrionVM’s Micro Point of Presence (MicroPoPs) white label offering for data centers, ISPs and hosting providers, allowing them to launch their own cloud offering closer to their clients.
“We worked with the OrionVM team to integrate their cloud stack with our data center innovations. This end-to-end solution is a first in Australia,” said Shalini Lagrutta, Managing Director of DXN.
“We are looking for partners to grow with DXN on our journey to the cloud. We see strong partnership opportunities with local MSPs looking to grow their product offerings and add value to the DXN ecosystem.
OrionVM Managing Director Sheng Yeo said, “The DXN Cloud is a great example of two Australian innovators working together to bring a truly compelling offering to market.
“With the addition of our MicroPoP offerings, data centers like DXN can now launch their own cloud offering on top of their core data center products. This benefits both the provider and its customers through the technology and pricing advantages of OrionVM’s cloud technology stack.
Speaking to CRN, Yeo said OrionVM is considering the “Australia first” offer because the two companies are Australian and have worked together to create a solution.
“Usually if you look at solutions built today, it could be an Australian data center with a US tech provider or a local software set, but also hosted on a US-based colocation provider. United States,” he said.
“A lot of the value we were able to get with DXN is that they built, designed and manufactured their data centers in Australia, and OrionVM wrote all the software in Sydney to create an end-to-end solution built in Australia.”.
In its announcement, DXN said it chose the Australian cloud provider for its unique cloud architecture and easy-to-deploy and manage hybrid cloud solution that integrates seamlessly with co-located hardware and bare metal infrastructure.
DXN said it has signed up a number of customers to DXN Cloud, including Sydney-based managed services provider Onshoring.
“We love that this whole solution was built from the ground up by two Australian companies,” said Natalie Houlahan, Head of Marketing and Customer Acquisition.
“The cloud platform has been reliable and fast, and is backed by a knowledgeable local team who are always on hand to help. I am excited about the ecosystem of technology providers and look forward to working with DXN to deliver innovative solutions to customers across Australia.
Last week, DXN announced that it was set to be acquired by Singapore-based FLOW Digital Infrastructure for $26 million.
