Our own worldwide network
OVH places one word above all others: MASTERY. In the same way we produce and maintain our servers, racks and hosting towers, we also design and operate our own network. This approach allows us to provide up to 1Gbps of guaranteed bandwidth (and up to 3Gbps as an option) depending on the server series. This represents a unique advantage on the market: latency is reduced and data routing is optimized.

Over 12 Tbps around the world

To ensure high-speed connection, high-quality bandwidth and low latency, OVH chose to invest in deploying its own fiber optic network. Operating with DWDM equipment and currently being migrated to the 100G coherent technology, the OVH network has a total capacity of 12 Tbps to the worldwide web.

High-quality routing infrastructure

The routing infrastructure is essentially based on Cisco products, a company that has developed a close technical relationship with OVH.

Anti-DDoS protection

OVH includes a protection against all types of DDoS attacks in its dedicated hosting service. The web hosting provider has set up 9 anti-DDoS infrastructures with a capacity of 6x600Gps + 1x 240Gbps + 2x120Gbps across the group's data centers.

With that, OVH is able to mitigate up to 4 Tbps, 24/7.

High-security network

In order to ensure maximum security when your server or OVH product is connecting to the Internet, links are at least doubled at every step of routing.

Two Cisco routers (each with two network cards) make up the physical connection to your server. The fiber optic cables are at least doubled, and sometimes tripled.
