The best price/performance ratio
For more than 20 years now, OVHcloud has been supporting you in your digital life by upholding a SMART cloud.
A cloud that liberates its users with Simple, Multi-local, Accessible, Reversible and Transparent solutions. This belief is reflected on a daily basis with offers featuring the best price/performance ratios on the market, and we will not renege on this fundamental promise.
In 2021 and especially in 2022, the global rates of inflation have changed our daily lives. With an annual rate reaching +8.9% in July 2022 in Europe, including a 39.7% increase in energy costs, inflation has a significant impact on all business sectors, including the digital sector.
Thanks to the long-term management of our energy costs in 2021, we did not immediately need to change our prices. However, at the end of 2022 and in 2023, part of our energy purchases coverage are coming to an end and we are going to end up buying energy at a higher price, the current fast-growing market price across the world. This is a significant increase that we unfortunately have to pass on to all of our services directly linked to the electricity consumption of our infrastructures. This price increase will affect both new and existing services.
Regarding existing services, we will proceed with a managed price increase of approximately 10%. It will be effective on 01 November 2022 on Public Cloud and on 01 December 2022 on Bare Metal technology (Dedicated Servers, Eco range, VPS), Hosted Private Cloud and Web Hosting plans. Over the next few weeks, we will keep you informed regarding the price change service-by-service.
An unchanged commitment
Price/performance is part of our core commitments and remains at the heart of our value proposition to our customers. Currently, you already benefit from the savings we help you make thanks to innovations like water cooling and reversibility. These new inflation pressures do not change our objectives: to better serve you and offer you total freedom in the advanced use of our infrastructures and services by bringing you even more innovations.
