Hosted Private Cloud Premier: OVHcloud lays the foundation of a new hosted private cloud generation

Press Release

OVHcloud, the European cloud leader and a leading cloud infrastructure provider in Canada since 2010, today announced the launch of its new Premier hosted private cloud product line. The release of Premier follows the company being named a “strong performer” by Forrester in the “Hosted Private Cloud North America 2020 Wave” report issued last month. The unification of its private cloud solutions and the isolation of the Group’s offering from the Cloud Act, was well received. The pricing criteria achieved the highest score possible, confirming OVHcloud’s commitment to offering trusted cloud solutions with a predictable, totally transparent price (available online, without any hidden costs).

OVHcloud’s expertise, combined with a strong partner ecosystem
With 10 years of expertise in hosted private cloud solutions, OVHcloud offers robust, scalable, and highly automated infrastructure that meets professional requirements for operating critical environments and performing intensive workloads. The Group also offers a wide range of certifications[1], addressing the needs of the financial sector in order to comply with the PCI Security Council standards (PCIDSS) or the healthcare sector.

This new generation of Hosted Private Cloud is the result of a close collaboration with OVHcloud’s technology partners, since it integrates multiple divisions of hardware and software: offering a choice of new components - including the latest generation of Intel CPUs – where network and storage are completely redesigned. All these innovations, verified in R&D for several months, are now exclusively integrated into production. In addition, OVHcloud’s customers can benefit from the integration, managed services support and consultation of an ecosystem of 800 certified OVHcloud Partner Program partners to support them implement these innovative solutions.

More performance for mission-critical and resource-intensive applications
Accessible to all OVHcloud customers around the world, Hosted Private Cloud Premier offers companies a wide range of solutions with unique advantages:

  • A broader range of 7 standard hosts, complemented by 3 new hyperconverged host references that rely on VMware vSAN technology and range from 48GB to 768GB of RAM, for better performance and reduced latency, ideal for critical applications;
  • NFS datastores up to 36TB, providing storage capacity at an unmatched price-performance ratio that allows professionals to store data in the data centers of their choice (7 locations worldwide[2]) with confidence;
  • Private and public network access with more capacity - up to 25 Gbps to improve application performance;
  • A full range of VMware software: vCenter, vSphere version 6.7 (Enterprise Plus license), vSAN, and NSX. Hosted Private Cloud Premier also integrates VMware's vRealize Operations brick at no additional cost to facilitate access to infrastructure monitoring and capacity planning. The Hosted Private Cloud offering is based on the foundation of VMware standards and guarantees total technological reversibility;
  • Simple, competitive and predictable pricing for customers to control their budget.

"This launch paves the way for a new era of the Hosted Private Cloud, as well as the diversification of virtualization solutions. Our ambition is to provide efficient, simple and accessible solutions that allow the right balance between price, performance, security, sovereignty and predictability of costs," said Michel Paulin, CEO of OVHcloud.
