Montreal (Canada), March 16, 2022
OVHcloud and Nutanix, a global leader in hybrid multicloud computing, have partnered to offer Hosted Private Cloud powered by Nutanix. This pre-installed solution running the Nutanix Cloud Platform is ready to use in a matter of hours, running on 100% dedicated and secure OVHcloud infrastructure. The scalable, all-inclusive platform is designed for organizations that want to migrate their applications quickly and easily to the cloud or embark on a hybrid multicloud journey by scaling their applications to cloud for seasonal demands and taking advantage of disaster recovery in the cloud. Customers can leverage a common software management plane from Nutanix tying their OVHcloud solution to the Nutanix Cloud Platform.
This new offering enhances the OVHcloud Private Cloud portfolio and provides organizations with the combination of the proven services of the leading European cloud provider and Nutanix’s Cloud Platform built on its industry-leading hyperconverged infrastructure software. The Hosted Private Cloud portfolio allows companies to leverage a dedicated infrastructure that scales alongside business needs. The use of a market standard such as Nutanix frees organizations from technical lock-in and provides continuity outside an OVHcloud environment.
The OVHcloud infrastructure meets the highest security and data protection standards, in line with HDS, ISO27001, HIPAA, and GDPR. In addition, OVHcloud infrastructure can help customers maintain data sovereignty.
“The partnership between OVHcloud and Nutanix delivers a cloud smart choice for all workloads, giving organizations of all sizes a secure and powerful new hybrid cloud option,” said Christian Alvarez, SVP Worldwide Channels at Nutanix. “The all-inclusive offering provides Nutanix's industry leading software capabilities along with OVH's infrastructure flexibility and network connectivity options that eliminate any ingress and egress cost surprises.”
Nutanix and OVHcloud team up to innovate cloud migration
Hosted Private Cloud powered by Nutanix specifically addresses the needs of organizations that want to migrate their applications quickly and easily to the cloud. This helps them save time and improve productivity while remaining focused on their core business. The solution also fully integrates with a hybrid cloud strategy, securely tying cloud workloads to those that remain on-premises. Hosted Private Cloud powered by Nutanix is also suitable for businesses wishing to implement a disaster recovery plan, since its secondary infrastructure can be switched to the cloud in just a few clicks. Finally, SMBs and large enterprises that experience seasonal variations in business can leverage this solution to absorb their peak loads in the cloud without investing heavily in on-premise infrastructure.
“We are pleased to join forces with Nutanix to help organizations move toward new opportunities in the field of hyperconvergence. This new private cloud offering combines the best of our two companies and complements our solutions, to offer businesses outstanding services that are suited to their specific needs,” said Thierry Souche, Chief Technology Officer at OVHcloud.
