corporate
Starting on June 28th until August 1st, 10,000 machines will be regularly made available to users, free of charge and without any obligation, a first in webhosting. To succeed on the Internet market, OVH.com has adopted a simple formula from the very start, think outside the box to offer better services at lower prices. In an industry where most players follow short-term strategies, the webhosting company aims for the long term by building its own data centers, developing its own air-conditioning free cooling systems, by designing and assembling its own servers, by managing its own optical fiber network and providing in-house technical support with its own teams.
To build its 9th data center, its first on the American continent, OVH.com relied on this model that has been a success in Europe for more than a decade. As a result of this unique configuration, the host will be able to offer its dedicated servers at the same price as in Europe i.e.: a quarter of the price of its American competitors. For this, the new data center is entirely powered by green energy coming from a hydro dam located less than 300 meters away from the building. OVH.com plans to eventually consume 40 MVA, with a PUE under 1.1.
Unlike its competitors, OVH.com has also invested in and deployed a network that covers Canada and the United States. Based on the new coherent 100G technology, this equipment makes it possible to manage a high capacity (10 Tbps) fully redundant network. This means the host ensures 100% network availability and low latencies.
Also being poles apart from its competition, who occupy a number of different buildings, OVH.com chose to build a data center along the East coast on an unprecedented scale. In the end, this data center will have a total capacity of 360,000 physical servers. This method, requires a significant initial investment, but allows for future industrialization that in time will achieve great economies of scale.
Finally, OVH.com doesn’t buy its servers pre-made, but builds them in their own production chains located directly in the data center. As a result, each day, up to 400 servers can be assembled per the customer's specifications and delivered within 1 hour. In a nutshell, OVH.com is about to make a difference on the American market thanks to its business model. By lowering operational costs and investing heavily in innovation, the host commits to a long term strategy to offer the highest level of quality at cut-rate prices.
