European Cloud Leader OVHcloud Releases New Global Range of Hosted Private Cloud Solutions

European cloud leader, OVHcloud, has announced a brand-new global range of Hosted Private Cloud, with the release of Hosted Private Cloud Premier. With this release, the company hopes to address the strategic stakes of large companies and institutions in terms of performance, security, isolation and location of their data, while at the same time offering competitive pricing.

OVHcloud has recently been recognised as a leader in the European market for Hosted Private Cloud in the latest report The Forrester Wave: Hosted Private Cloud Services In Europe, Q2 2020. Its network of 19 data centres in Europe, as well as the isolation of the Group’s European offer 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, addressing the needs of the financial sector in order to comply with the PCI Security Council standards (PCIDSS) or the European healthcare sector (HDS, the trusted certification for hosting health data).

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.
