 Full control and security ensuring smooth deployment

  • To ensure full control and encryption, IAM and KMS are joining OVHcloud portfolio. With IAM, the group will offer a centralized access management. It already benefits from SSO federation and will gain Policy Management via API by the end of February and through the manager in May. IAM for Public Cloud is expected end of May and for VMware on OVHcloud, end of August. KMS will automate secret management with a Beta version available by the end of the summer. Both solutions will be open sourced and offered as a service, in line with the ambition to offer a trusted and reversible Cloud.

Levelling up compute capabilities

  • Following closely the recently launched Metal Instances, the new compute instances will be added to the portfolio by the end of this summer. They will benefit from a revamped physical network in the datacenter with 5x times the capacity. With on-the-fly availability, Metal Instances take advantage of OVHcloud well known expertise in infrastructure in environmentally friendly datacenters.  

Challenge the opportunities offered by Storage & Big Data

  • With an ever-increasing need in storage, Block Storage users will soon benefit from a NVMe-oF based solution offering astounding speed. In that disaggregated storage scheme, compute is physically distant from storage. A Beta version is expected this fall.
  • Database consumption will get easier with the ability to select disk sizes dynamically. SQL databases will also integrate with S3 object storage.

Embrace the full potential of AI

  • Artificial intelligence takes advantage of hardware generational leaps that our infrastructure will soon offer. It also depends on training, a crucial step where the group already offers AI Training that hides the infrastructure complexity. Recently launched as a Beta, AI Deploy aims at helping with inference to jump right into production once AI models are ready to go. Final version of AI Deploy is expected on April 3rd with the availability of NLP pretrained Beta models from Gladia and Voxist.
  • Thanks to the ForePaaS acquisition, our portfolio of data services will evolve benefiting from new features, a new infrastructure yet keeping a “no code” approach. While elementary bricks will be made available as a service for data collection (ELT) with an Alpha version in August, the group will offer a lake house to ultimately empower customers with data visualisation and facilitate data scientists experience thanks to a complete orchestration toolbox. The lake house with SQL support is scheduled for the winter 2023. This solution will get open sourced to ensure full reversibility, no vendor lock-in and customization.

Solve Lift & Shift challenges, in sovereign environments

  • This year, VMware will benefit from app management on Tanzu services. NSX-T will be rolled out in April for improved security, reinforcing the Group’s commitment to a trusted Cloud.
  • Speaking of trusted environments, SAP customers are already able to choose SAP HANA qualified Bare Metal servers, they will also be able to select SecNumCloud environment to run SAP solutions on Hosted Private Cloud. With increased RAM in new configurations, OVHcloud will handle hypervisor and infrastructure management through vSAN HANA certified packs to help clients focus on their core business.

Provide a 360 approach to web agencies

  • Web hosting will benefit in early May from a new comprehensive line-up of commercial offers allowing for quick project bootstrapping. Next generation servers will also deliver better performance and faster loading times to clients. With more features at the same price point, the Group keeps on offering the best price/performance ratio.
  • OVHcloud will launch an alternative email solution based on Zimbra, able to support ActiveSync and standard collaborative tools and target the highest security frameworks.

Turbo charging Infrastructure & Network

  • The new generation of Bare Metal will leverage AMD Genoa and Intel Sapphire Rapids chips in configurations to offer up to 256 x86 cores per U and up to 8 TB of RAM on 2 sockets server, with full NVMe as well as up to 2,2 PB of storage capacity per server. Next Gen Scale and High-Grade products will launch starting this summer.
  • New GPU will provide faster performance for everything AI and, to accommodate the most intensive workloads, a Grid Computing platform will be offered to allow developers to leverage up to 16 KW racks. A beta program is expected to launch in October 2023.
  • Network remains key for compute and OVHcloud plans to roll-out 25, 50, 100 and soon 400G network fabrics. Coupled with 4 interfaces per server and OLA technology, bandwidth will reach new heights in the datacenter for maximum flexibility. Traffic is included in the datacenter and between datacenters for price predictability.

Empower next generation use cases with Quantum

  • OVHcloud completes its notebook portfolio in the field of quantum technologies with immediate availability of ATOS myQLM. Adding to the existing Quandela Perceval notebook, ATOS myQLM is a quantum dedicated notebook allowing development and learning.

Throughout this Very Tech Trip premiere, OVHcloud sets the stage for thousands of tech lovers, uniting them in a common vision of the cloud whose core value of freedom remains stronger than ever. Developers, SysAdmins, SREs, Data Scientists, scrum masters and architects are strongly invited to test drive the latest solutions on OVHcloud Labs and share their feedback on Discord or GitHub, which also hosts OVHcloud public roadmaps.
