Hosted Private Cloud in Europe: trusted OVHcloud solutions recognised as a Leader by independent research firm

Trusted Cloud

OVHcloud has been recognised as a leader in the European Hosted Private Cloud market and is noted for unifying services while ensuring a Cloud Act emancipated European offering.

The report, The Forrester Wave™: Hosted Private Cloud Services In Europe, Q2 2020, analyses OVHcloud's position in Europe through its hosted private cloud services across the continent.

With its European footprint of 17 data centers in France, Germany, the UK and Poland, OVHcloud offers robust and scalable Hosted Private Cloud services that enable the company to suitably address large institutional and enterprise markets.

OVHcloud's virtual storage network is a key enabler, providing customers with greater flexibility and a range of certifications[1] and technologies that can be adapted to meet any business need, while respecting GDPR.

"For us, Hosted Private Cloud is an essential gateway that enables us to offer our customers the best technologies and a dedicated environment to support their migration to a high-performance, interoperable and secure cloud. We believe this recognition as a leader is above all the result of a collective dynamic, carried out with the industrial and technological partners of our ecosystem. "explains Octave Klaba, founder of OVHcloud.

"Cloud solutions have evolved (Hosted Private Cloud, Hybrid Cloud, Multi-Cloud, Edge Computing and Bare Metal Cloud) since the days of companies only looking to the Hyperscalers and Public Cloud. However, digital transformation in the UK is still a complex landscape. Working with our channel partners we are confident our latest Hosted Private Cloud solutions are the right choice for Enterprise, SME, SaaS, Public Sector, FinTech and other customer segments. They deliver high performance, scalability and security with the transparent cost predictability required to succeed in these uncertain times." comments Hiren Parekh, VP - Northern Europe, OVHcloud.

A strong performer on the other side of the Atlantic

Since the acquisition of vCloudAir in 2017, OVHcloud has conducted a significant migration of vCloudAir’s customers to its own infrastructure in order to unify its offer for the US market. OVHcloud was recognised for its wide range of options in the report The Forrester Wave™: Hosted Private Cloud Services In North America, Q2 2020, which named OVHcloud a ‘Strong performer’.

An ambitious roadmap to support market transformation

OVHcloud plans to significantly expand its Hosted Private Cloud range in 2020, taking it into a new dimension to provide simple solutions adapted to a multiplicity of use cases. This new dynamic will be characterised by packaged offers and a wide variety of customisations.

In the coming days, the Group will launch its Hosted Private Cloud Premier solution, which will meet the specific needs of large companies and institutions for whom the security and isolation of cloud services are crucial. This new offer will now be composed of 10 references of hosts, ranging from 48 to 768 GB of RAM, including 3 references offering hyper-converged storage with VMware's vSAN technology. Thanks to OVHcloud’s integrated industrial model, this will be made available at a competitive price in order to reach as many customers as possible. The release of this new range is also accompanied by a total overhaul of both the private and public network, as well as new storage capacities with NSF datastores of up to 36TB for a more advantageous price/performance ratio.

"This launch paves the way for the complete renovation of our Hosted Private Cloud range, as well as the diversification of virtualisation solutions. Hosted Private Cloud Premier will soon be complemented by the Essentials solution, adapted to the SMB and Enterprise market. Our ambition is to provide concrete, fluid and intuitive solutions that will enable everyone to get the most out of their data thanks to the right balance of performance, sovereignty and cost predictability. "comments Michel Paulin, CEO at OVHcloud.
