ORIX Growth Capital recently completed a growth capital investment in Faction, a leading Managed Service Provider for VMware Cloud on AWS.
“Throughout 2018, Faction saw an explosion of interest in customers looking for cost-effective solutions for running VMware Cloud on AWS. We have experienced impressive growth in our Hybrid Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service and Faction Cloud Control Volumes for VMware Cloud on AWS offerings,” said Luke Norris, founder and CEO of Faction. “The need for high-performance and scale-out storage that can expand with customers’ needs across clouds including Azure, AWS, Google Compute Engine and VMware Cloud on AWS is only going to increase.
