OVH Private Cloud Powers Digital Transformation

Partnerships with VMWare and Intel drive technology innovation.

OVH, a global hyper-scale cloud provider, today announced the launch of new OVH Private Cloud - Software Defined Data Center (SDDC) ranges that are designed to support all types of companies with their digital transformation. By confirming its commitment to support, simplify and accelerate companies' digital transformation, OVH is reinforcing its position as an alternative cloud provider. OVH’s new Private Cloud SDDC offering is being showcased at VMWorld in Barcelona this week, where the company will have the opportunity to demonstrate how its strategic relationships with VMWare and Intel are allowing OVH to provide companies with the best cloud technologies available on the market.

OVH boasts the VMware Cloud Verified label and this year, once again, received the EMEA Cloud Provider of the year Award. The collaboration between the two companies led to the launch of the first OVH Private Cloud offerings at the end of 2010. These offerings are available in OVH datacenters in six countries around the world: France, Poland, Canada, the United States, and more recently Germany and the United Kingdom.

The Best Innovations on the Market
OVH is the first provider of managed private cloud solutions to offer its customers cutting-edge innovations in a unique service tailored to the needs of businesses. For proof, look no further than the launch of VMware Hybrid Cloud Extension (HCX) technology for all OVH SDDC customers. This technology enables hot migration of all infrastructures without downtime. Over the past year, OVH has been migrating the workloads of its vCloud Air customers across the world leveraging this technology and gaining significant expertise. OVH remains to this day the only player in the market with significant experience in HCX. In total, OVH will have migrated around 500 environments and nearly 9,000 virtual machines, with a total data volume of 3 PBytes.

Strongly committed to the security of its customers' data, OVH has enhanced the OVH Private Cloud range with VM Encryption, based on OpenSSL libraries and algorithms, to secure virtual machines easily, directly from the vSphere client.

“Since the launch of the OVH SDDC platform in 2010, OVH keeps delivering an innovative approach, enabling customers to take advantage of consistent infrastructure and operations on premises and in the cloud. The availability of Hybrid Cloud Extension (HCX) in the OVH portfolio is just the latest step to facilitate cloud adoption by our mutual customers, offering them the possibility to move to the cloud with no downtime in their services.” - Rajeev Bhardwaj, Vice President of Product Management, Cloud Provider Software Business Unit, VMware.

SDDC Redesign
The redesign of its SDDC solutions range, aims to enable business customers to benefit from new competitive offers that systematically include access to the private OVH network and come with a free bandwidth guarantee.

The SDDC is also integrating innovative VMware vSAN host based on the latest generation of NVMe Intel® Optane™ DC Solid State Drives, to support hyperconvergence and guarantee ultra-high performance. This innovation is made possible thanks to a strong partnership between OVH and Intel.

“In this era of data-centric computing, we are excited to be working with OVH to deploy our latest storage technologies into their cloud services,” states Bill Leszinske, Corporate Vice President and Director, Strategic Planning, Marketing and Business Development at Intel. “With Intel® Optane™ DC SSDs and Intel® 3D NAND SSDs, our technology brings an industry-leading combination of high throughput, low latency and high quality service to match customers’ needs for cost-effective, high-performant platforms to support their growing software-defined data center environments.
