At the Sydney Cloudcamp I had the chance to interview the founders of OrionVM http://orionvm.com.au/. They are a new Sydney based cloud statup. They provide a local cloud infrastructure that is hosted in Sydney, which is great for anything that requires lower latency or for data that has hosting restrictions (financial data, private data, etc).
I asked them about their offering, the technology powering their cloud, etc. They are doing some interesting things. I hope it goes well!
