OVHcloud announces High Performance Object Storage, a reliable, high performance object storage solution
Roubaix (France), February 22, 2022 - OVHcloud is extending its data storage solution portfolio by providing its customers with a new storage offering for unstructured data. High Performance Object Storage combines high performance and scalability with a transparent and ultra-competitive pricing model. It meets the requirements of Big Data and artificial intelligence (AI) applications, as well as being suitable for e-commerce and streaming platforms.
The vast amount of data being created is growing exponentially each year, and by 2025, 80% of global data will be unstructured data. As organisations adopt a cloud-native approach, in order to modernise their information systems or build new applications, they face many challenges. These include managing the complexity inherent in unstructured data, storing massive amounts of data whilst controlling their associated costs, and delivering the performance required by applications that utilise this data.
High performance to meet business requirements
High Performance Object Storage offers organisations high performance, highly scalable storage at a competitive price. Specifically designed for Big Data, artificial intelligence (AI), high performance computing (HPC), and applications that require high throughput and low latency, the solution is equally well suited for static data such as documents and media content.
High Performance Object Storage can store massive amounts of data and scale up quickly to one petabyte, at an excellent price/performance ratio. The pricing model is completely transparent to the customer: £23 excluding VAT per terabyte per month, £0.0072 excluding VAT per outbound gigabyte, while API requests and private outbound traffic are included without any extra charge. Easy to access, the solution is fully available through the S3 API and the OVHcloud Customer Panel.
A storage solution that maintains data sovereignty and privacy
With over two decades of expertise in digital infrastructure services, OVHcloud has developed an industrial model that preserves the technological and operational sovereignty of customers, while deploying environmentally friendly and resource-efficient technologies. Designed and engineered in the Group’s own data centres, all OVHcloud solutions guarantee total data reversibility and immunity to extraterritorial laws. The infrastructure operated by OVHcloud meets the highest security and data protection standards, in line with the ISO 27001 certification, as well as GDPR compliance. Like all the leading European cloud provider’s solutions, High Performance Object Storage features an industry leading price/performance ratio and allows organisations to maintain control of their cloud strategy with predictable pricing and – eventually – the choice of data location.
High Performance Object Storage is already available in the Strasbourg data center (France). The service will be deployed in Gravelines (France) by April 2022. It will be available internationally in OVHcloud’s Canadian-based and US data centres in May 2022.
