A strong vision for the future of the Hosted Private Cloud market

OVHcloud product offering reflects OVHcloud core values, notably to allow full freedom of choice to its customers and data security.  Extensive data protection is ensured by top-of-class market certifications (e.g.HDS for healthcare, SecNumCloud in progress for sovereignty of Government data) and the full control for OVHcloud customers over the location of their data.

Our OVHcloud Hosted Private Cloud solutions are based on market leading solutions (OVHcloud is a verified VMware cloud provider) and powered by latest hardware technologies (OVHcloud designs and build its own servers and datacenters).

Our main objective is therefore to provide performant (in terms of compute, storage and network), resilient, secured and easy-to-manage solutions to our customers with full price predictability.

For instance on Storage capabilities, a key requirement for Cloud customers and a fundamental brick of our offering, OVHcloud offers a full range of options from NFS to full NVMe hyperconverged storage with the vSAN technology which also demonstrates the best price/performance ratio observed on the market. 

Our offering is also built around a multi-product approach which provides customers the ability to mix products across the OVHcloud universes and build fully customizable solutions tailored to customers specific needs.

Building the future together with OVHcloud Ecosystem

We have identified several opportunities to support our customers in their digital transformation and their hybrid cloud strategies by offering a continuity between on-prem and off-prem infrastructures. First of all, OVHcloud will continue to streamline the integration with VMware. In the near future and to continue to offer strong freedom of choice, we will also be releasing new platforms and new storage solutions for Hosted Private Cloud.

Our Hosted Private Cloud offering is highly secured, fully reversible, with dedicated resources, and easy to connect to customer legacy solutions and all OVHcloud products, therefore providing freedom of choice to customers. In addition, it includes a private network with unlimited and unmetered ingress and egress traffic. Furthermore, Multi-AZ environments will be available across different regions.

OVHcloud will launch in 2020 a broader range of hosted private cloud products, from cost effective to enterprise grade hosted private clouds.
