OVH Debuts Private Cloud Offerings
for US Market
November 21, 2017
touted its Hosted Private Cloud offerings, evolving the vCloud Air
powered by OVH product line. These offerings include new options for
disaster recovery, enterprise-grade private cloud, and enhanced
hybridity that will help businesses modernize their technology stacks.
OVH announced its entry to the US market via its acquisition of the
vCloud Air business from VMware in April 2017. Targeted to midsize to
enterprise companies, the updated product line will significantly
enhance cloud workload flexibility and portability while leveraging the
growing OVH data center footprint, OVH's expert sales and support
technicians, and the newly announced VMware HCX hybridity technology.
The top three benefits that customers look to gain from the cloud are
application agility, cost savings, and retiring obsolete hardware,
according to findings in Gartner's "Best Practice in Market
Differentiation with Mature Cloud Service Contracts."  To deliver the
value that customers expect, OVH believes cloud service providers must
offer flexible and comprehensive infrastructure options that support
multi-cloud and hybrid strategies. OVH is introducing new Hosted Private
Cloud and hybrid cloud solutions on proprietary, next-generation
hardware and software that can be augmented with its high-performance
Dedicated Server, Public Cloud, and network product lines. These new
offerings are based on VMware's technologies to allow seamless workload
mobility whether on-premises or in the cloud. All of these solutions
immediately open access to the OVH global ecosystem of 27 data centers,
33 points of presence, world-class security and anti-DDoS protection.
"Businesses need solutions that scale dynamically and are supported by
top-tier customer service experts to meet their evolving private cloud
demands," said Russell P. Reeder, President and CEO of OVH US.
"Businesses are dynamic. Cloud providers must support business change as
rapidly as it occurs. OVH works with our customers to deliver the
best-fit infrastructure and software options they need to help them
operate better, faster, and more efficiently."
OVH partners with customers to solve their cloud challenges with the new
Hosted Private Cloud lineup:
•Enterprise Dedicated Cloud - Built
on the foundation of VMware's software-defined data center and the
latest generation of Intel hardware, the Dedicated Cloud offerings
provide physically-isolated, single-tenant cloud environments for
enterprise workloads. Resources are delivered in a public cloud manner,
enabling one-click, user-controlled provisioning that gives enterprises
the flexibility to add and remove resources as their needs change. Full
access to familiar VMware tools already used on-premises, including
VMware vSphere®, vCenter Server®, and NSX®, reduces ramp-time for
Recovery - Based on the core Dedicated Cloud offerings and configuration
choices, OVH Disaster Recovery provides adaptable, simple-to-use
solutions that reduce recovery time objectives (RTOs) and recovery point
objectives (RPOs). Customers can solve disaster recovery
on-premises-to-cloud or cloud-to-cloud. OVH has partnered with industry
leaders to provide best-of-breed disaster recovery software options via
VMware vSphere Replication™, Zerto®, or VMware HCX technologies, so
customers can choose the "right-fit" for their business continuity
•Hybridity with VMware HCX - OVH Hosted Private Cloud solutions, coupled
with VMware HCX technologies, enables high-performance, secure, and
large-scale workload mobility between any vSphere platform --
on-premises or the OVH cloud. HCX allows for workloads to be migrated
with zero downtime. Further, HCX abstracts multisite resources and
presents them to applications as one continuous "hybrid" cloud.
"OVH is one of the first cloud providers to offer VMware HCX
technologies and has long-supported VMware's vision of multi-cloud,"
said Allwyn Sequeira, senior vice president and general manager, VMware
Hybrid Cloud Services. "OVH already had a strong history of delivering
cloud services based on VMware technology. With the acquisition of
vCloud Air, OVH's support and operational organizations are well
prepared to support HCX."
